    Dear Jan and all,
    I have arranged to use a local Church hall for working bees.About 25 willing sewers and finishers so far. I have some kind offers from fellow long arm quilters to help with the quilting. We are up to the challenge. We know that in 2-3 months when all these quilts are completed and ready for distribution. The recipients will be feeling like they are forgotten and all alone in their strife. When they are given a beautiful quilt made with love in every stitch,it will help them to realise that we will not forget them . Each quilt will be labelled to show that the blocks were sent to us from our friends in USA. God bless you all.

    Hi everyone!
    I just would like to provide another US address to ship blocks for Carisbrook to....I am the east coast collector and will also be sending "blocks in bulk" to Wilma in OZ. Thanks to all wonderful quilters who participate!

    I will have my hubby send a few in the mail this week. They aren't the fanciest, but I think they will help the cause!

    Thank you, Polly. I cannot believe OZ is getting hit by a cyclone now. I live in the US, but I will send on your good wishes!
