Quilting for Japan

Wednesday 25th May

We have completed 99 quilts. You can view them following the link below. All the quilts have been labeled and washed. Packed separately in a transparent plastic bag with the measurements on it. Thanks to all our friends without them we would not have succeeded to make so many quilts. Thanks for all your donations, is it in work, hours spent at home and at the shop sewing, donations of fabrics and money. With the money we bought the batting some fabric and threads to match the quilts.

Together with the quilts we are sending a letter in the name of all of you!

Quilting for Japan

Friday 29th April 

Today we finished 66 quilts and we have around 20 more on the go. You still can come to the shop and pick up a kit or sew at the shop, or even deposit a finished quilt. When the project started I was targeting 25 quilts, now, I would like to reach a 100 Quilts but I need the help of all of you. I would like to thank all of you, who invested as small as a few hours and much more. It’s only with all your small and bigger efforts that we today exceeded the target of 25 quilts.

Today Mr. Konishi from Brother International picked up 50 quilts, which will be shipped very soon. We will keep you updated about the where about of the quilts .All the quilts have been washed, labeled and packed, we also added a letter for the recipient, which you can read above.

Help us to reach the 100 quilts.
