    This was posted on another site.

    The following information came over the quiltart list.

    Quilters Newsletter has long enjoyed a friendship withPatchwork 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:

    Quilts for newborn babies especially welcome.
    . Send quilts of any (minum 40" x 40") size from baby to adult to:

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

    . Mark your box: "Quilts for Japan."
    . 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.

    Here's another link to an organization that is sending quilts. It is in Ohio.
