Sandy and the Studio Tour...

This Friday, I will be participating in the Haverford Guild of Craftsmen Studio Tour. Over the weekend, thirty-two artists will come together in six studios to share their work with the community. It is a wonderful time to meet new people from the area, have a glass of wine or mulled apple cider, and maybe a few cookies....
not to mention the holiday shopping!

In the midst of all the preparations, a friend sent me information about a group of people who had organized a block drive for quilts to be donated to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Information can be found here if you would would like to get involved.
The need is still great!

There are many quilt drives out there for Sandy victims. This particular one involves making Wonky Log Cabin blocks, as many as you can, and sending them to team leaders who find others to assemble, quilt, and ship to distribution centers.The blocks are easy to put together, and it is a wonderful way to use up your scraps and help others in the process.

So, after I sent out twelve blocks, I finished binding all my quilts, cleaned them, and packed them up for the Studio Tour.


I will be at
18 Colfax Road, Havertown, PA
Friday through Sunday :)

Finally, please don't forget the Walking For Nathaniel Quilt Raffle! Winner is chosen on December 18th. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to BDD research at the International OCD Foundation in Boston, MA.
