    Keepsake Quilting in Center Harbor, NH just put this on FB....


    Quilters Newsletter has long enjoyed a friendship with Patchwork Tsushin, a leading Japanese quilt magazine. So when Editor in Chief Naomi Ichikawa emailed to say her magazine is collecting comfort quilts for those impacted by the recent earthquake in Japan, we wanted to join the effort. QN will gather quilts from U.S. quiltmakers then forward them to Naomi and her staff, who will deliver them to those in need. (If you live outside the United States, email me as indicated below, and I will provide information on how you can send quilts directly to Naomi.)

    Here’s how you can be part of this important worldwide response:

    • Send quilts of any size from baby to adult to:

    Dana Jones
    Quilters Newsletter
    741 Corporate Circle, Suite A
    Golden, CO 80401

    • Mark your box: “Quilts for Japan.” OR enclose a note with the package
    • Send quilts as soon as possible and no later than April 30, 2011.
    • Enclose your name, address, phone number, and email address with the quilts.

    If you have questions you can email Dana Jones @ djones@creativecraftsgroup.com

    It is my understanding that this is for the quilts that are being mailed from outside of the US. This way they don't need to mail them to the US and then have them sent to Japan; they can go directly to Japan.
