Blankets of Love Charity

Some of you expressed interest in Blankets of Love Charity.

Sheila Ethier and I connected this afternoon.  She is currently hoping to collect 300 quilts for Alberta Hospital (that’s how many patients they have) and the staff are very excited for their patients.  Sheila has been overwhelmed with the support she has received since her TV appearance.

Her requirements are 100% cotton

  • lap size 45”x60”
  • 55”x70”
  • twin size 60”x90”

The quilts need to be washed and bagged.

Her current deadline is Dec 15th but she will take Quilts year round.

More info on this will be in the next newsletter.

Our current stock was given to St Vincent de Paul this week.  We have 7 quilts getting quilted now that could be appropriate and I had 2 tops dropped off that need quilting.

Let me know if you want to participate in this campaign. Even 1 quilt would be welcomed and I could collect them at my house.
