Today's Quiltsy Cares donation comes form Ilse Daehler of ISewTotes. Ilse lives in Silver Spring MD and her donation was for House of Ruth Maryland. House of Ruth provides a safe haven for victims of domestic violence and there children. Their goal is to help women and their children not only by providing shelter, but also helping them to rebuild their lives.
The House of Ruth has a group (B-More Bags) that regularly meets and makes bags to sell. The proceeds support the House of Ruth Maryland. Unfortunately it is too far for Ilse to participate in the meetings so she donated the two bag shown below.
