Quiltsy Team member, Gina Massop, has donated these delightful crib quilt and puppy rag quilts to CADA (Committee Against Domestic Abuse) House in Mankato MN.
This charity is special to Gina because of the many families affected by domestic violence. Many of the victims of domestic violence are blamed and shamed in to believing they are somehow responsible for their abusers behavior. CADA offers safety, advocacy, and empowerment to those affected by domestic violence and provides education to victims and our communities to work towards changing attitudes and behaviors that perpetuate violence.
Gina hopes that these quilts will give the children affected by the instability and insecurity of a violent home, a warm, snuggly, secure feeling ... and a quilt to call their own.
Gina lives in Minnesota Lake, MN on a country acreage with her husband Tom. They have four grown children living in several states. Gina has been quilting for twenty years and has been a member of the Quiltsy Team for four of the five years she has had a shop on Etsy. Her Etsy shop is called Gina Marie Crafts. She make bibs, burp cloths, table runners, ornaments, and lip balm holders; but her favorite things to make are quilts.
