We spent last week being heartbroken over all the people in Joplin who are hurting. Lots of prayers and tears around here. And we wanted to do what we could to help. So here's what we're thinking...
- We can collect fabric scraps from anyone who is willing to ship them to us. (Nothing smaller than 13" squares, please.)
Please ship to: the Long ladies, PO Box 574, Seneca, MO 64865
- We can also be collecting Queen or King-sized flat sheets (new or gently used) to be used as quilt backing.
- And we can make as many quilt tops as we can!
- We're asking for volunteers... if we sent you enough fabric to make a quilt top, would you sew it together for us?
The whole idea is to make as many quilts as we can for these families who don't have anything left. It seems like the least we can do. We'll plan to post updates on our progress along and along. Please pass the word, and feel free to re-post this, facebook it, twitter it, or whatever you like. Let's get the word out and start sewing!
XOXO, the Long ladies
