Quilts for Quake Survivors

Hi Guys and Gals,
I just posted this at Treadle Yard Goods' blog, but I wanted to get the word out here too.
Please join us this Friday and next Friday, we'll be doing our part to help those families who have lost so much in Japan due to their recent earthquake and tsunami.

We've all seen the devastation in Japan, and now there is something we can do together to help those families who have lost so much.
Quilts for Quake Survivors is the brainchild of Daniela and Susan (author of Modern Log Cabin Quilting).
They're calling for supplies to make handmade lap and baby quilts to send to Japan.

A quote from their website -
Why Quilts you ask? Because quilts stand for love, warmth, and comfort. Log Cabin quilting is probably the easiest quilting method, extremely economical and yields beautiful results. It also symbolizes the heart of the home – the center square represents the lamplight or fire in the hearth, surrounded by the “logs” or walls of the log cabin. We’d like to share this feeling of friendship, home and warmth with those who need it most.

Please join us at Treadle 2 on April 8th and 15th, from 6-9 to cut strips, assemble blocks and hopefully put together some quilts for this great cause.

We ask that you bring along your scraps, and any stash fabric that you would like to donate and we'll provide the log-cabin know-how.

See you at the store soon,

Amended - Treadle 2 is around the corner from Treadle Yard Goods which sits at the corner of Grand Ave and Hamline Ave. in Saint Paul. Treadle 2 is down Hamline about 100 ft.
