Want to make some quilts for hurricane victims?

Hi all,

In keeping with the idea of organizing smaller groups for special projects, I was wondering if any of you would like to help make quilts for some of the hardest hit victims of Sandy. has organized major quilt drives for past disasters (911, Katrina, Japanese tsunami, etc.) and is spearheading a drive for 5,000 quilts for the Sandy victims. They have contacts and experience and have enlisted the help of RJR fabrics who will provide storage space and help with delivery.

Here is the link explaining the process:

I am definitely interested in this and suspect that many of you will be as well. I know I've been feeling that I should be DOING something to help (in addition to monetary contribution of course). So, I'm thinking we could discuss this at the next meeting, make some plans and put the project in motion....Time is of the essence!

Start thinking about ways to organize such a project - and if anyone has experience in doing something like this we'd love to have your input.
