Quilts for Japan – Sew In
The Quiltbug shop is going to be having a Sew-In at the UMC Church next door to the shop starting at 11AM on April 10 to make quilts for Japan. The church is going to do a bake sale to help raise funds for shipping, and the Western Turnpike Deli is going to provide food for the workers. As is Hannaford. Quilters Dream Batting will be sending us some batting and Kona Bay will be sending us some fabric to use as backing. Quilting Services have been donated by At Home Quilting and two other individuals.
I’ve asked a couple of people for door prizes and everyone has said yes so far. I am going to keep working on that. I am kinda excited.
We *will* need donations of fabric (or quilt blocks or tops), batting, etc as well as lots of people to sew, of course:-)) If you would like to send us something, our mailing address is:
169 Main St
PO Box 273
Esperance NY 12066
If you would prefer to mail quilts directly to Japan, please do not send them until after June 1 due to problems of distribution. Mark them as bedding and do not put a value over $100 on them so the recipient doesn’t have to pay excessive VAT. Here is the address:
Naomi Ichikawa, Editor
Patchwork Tsushin Co., Ltd.,
2-21-2, Yushima, Bunkyo-ku
Tokyo, JAPAN 113-0034
If you have a quilt ready to go now, you can send it to:
741 Corporate Circle, Suite A
Golden, CO 80401
