I posted a thread (http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-58275-1.htm ) about a fire in Sister's Oregon (see below). Others have mentioned it would be nice to send Jackie some squishies to help her get back on her feet. I think it's a great idea. If you want to donate, I suggest that you put a note in the package explaining why you're sending the squishie and that you heard about the fire from this forum. The article mentions donations of $ can be made at Bank of Cascades. I've looked online and can't get the address of the central Oregon BofC....they have an error on their website. If anyone has it and wants to donate to Jackie thru that, then feel free!!! :-D

"Although no homes have burned because of the fire, one storage outbuilding has burned.
And now friends and co-workers have set up a fund at Bank of the Cascades to help Sisters quilter Jackie Erickson, who has worked at the Stichin' Post in Sisters for more than 20 years, who lost almost all her quilts and family keepsakes when the building burned.
Erickson and her husband were getting ready to move, said Jean Wells, owner of the Stichin' Post, and had packed up personal items, quilts and more. They were storing the items in their large outbuilding when the fire came through.
“So she just lost all her special stuff,” Wells said. “She has two quilts on display at the store, and all the rest are gone.”
