    Pay it Forward: Gifted Hands spreads joy through quilts

    This was on our local news website. Every month the TV station holds a drawing and picks one group who helps the community in Central Oregon. This month it was a quilting group out of Redmond Oregon.

    They look like a wonderful bunch of people.

    Thank you for sharing this link. It is wonderful to hear something positive on a news broadcast. Especially in-light of recent tragic events.

    How wonderful. So many of the quilt guilds, quilting groups and individuals give so much of themselves to benefit others. I live in a community near a military base. Our quilt guild is involved in making pillowcases and quilts for the wounded warriors.
