Quilts for Calgary


I have just received a letter from a  wonderful quilter, Bev Rogan, who is reaching out to our broader quilting community via facebook and blogs for the "Quilting for Calgary" movement.   

 Please do help if you can and thanks so very much to all of you who are already involved in this quilting movement!

From Bev Rogan:

We are a group of caring quilters from throughout North America, dedicated to bringing hope and comfort to the 2013 Flood victims of Southern Alberta. We are hoping you can help. 

We have attached a poster for your convenience and ask you to share it with as many people as possible. We also invite you and your friends to join us on our Facebook Group at;      https://www.facebook.com/groups/quiltingforcalgary/ where you can find additional details of our efforts.

 Please note we have a US mailing address in Houston for donations from our quilting friends south of the border. These donations will be shipped free of charge to Calgary once they reach Houston.

Many thanks for your consideration and for helping us to make a difference,

Bev Rogan
