Quiltsy Team Comforts Tennessee

The Quiltsy Team closely followed the recent devastating wildfire in Tennessee, getting first-hand reports from our team member, Jennifer, who lives in nearby Knoxville.  Concern for those who have lost their homes and all their belongings circulated among team members and a desire to help with comfort quilts became a focus of conversation.

A decision was reached to help provide quilts to the victims as soon as our quilting fabric and needles could do the job.  It is a busy time of year but already there are more than fifteen teamies signed up to contribute a finished quilt ... or to quilt and finish pieced tops made by others.

In spite of the busy holiday season ... quilts are being finished and readied for shipment to Tennessee from all over the United States and Canada.

Quiltsy Cares!  We will show some in-progress photos of the quilts and their destination over the coming weeks.
