    If you haven't heard of this a US soldier had a grassroots campaign last year to sending quilting supplies into Iraq for women that needed it. He ended up with well over 3,000 bundles of fabric to distribute. He is organizing it again this year, and if you are interested in helping out you can get more details on his site:

    Sew Mama Sew is also helping out by sending bundles of thread and pins. Last year there was a shortage of these things as most of us have plenty of fabric to share, but not so much thread. A bundle of thread costs $4 and will be sent right over to Iraq. You can see their post about this here:

    I just wanted to pass this wonderful thing along for anyone that wants to participate. Bundles need to be sent by October 1st, so there is plenty of time to mail. I know we as quilters have a lot of love to share!!

    Cheers!

    Thanks Rachel! I participated last year and it was so fun to see how many bundles were sent and how they were used. What a great effort! Give peace a chance.
