Queensland Quilters Flood Relief

20 01 2011

As you know, there is a lot of activity around support for the Qld flood victims.  I have already featured two options for you to send blocks and quilt tops to, told you about auctions and other activities to raise funds etc and I am sure everyone is doing what they can.

I have been in contact with the Queensland Quilters to see what they need.  Kim Boland, their President got back to me (and others) this morning.  Here is her Letter

In short, they would like quilts made to comfort those effected, so please support those groups making quilts or donate finished quilts directly.  They are also seeking donations of  cotton fabric, cotton batting, unfinished quilt tops and any books and magazines in good condition or cash to purchase items.  All the details are in the letter along with an address to send these to.

One guild has lost their whole library to the floods.  I want to do something to fix that, but that is not a topic for here.

Please circulate this message as far and wide as you can.  Any contribution will make the world of difference to many people who have lost everything.   

I am going to contact the Victorian Quilters also to see if any of their members need some support.  Depending on what they say, I will let you know.
