    So sorry to hear about this. We live in Oregon and it seems eastern/central Oregon always get hit with huge fires in the summer. Most are lightning strikes, but some are caused by carelessness. We all need to be more careful as fire does not discriminate.

    What a frightening situation. Her life's work. Hard to even imagine what she must be feeling - I hope the fire is calming down. We are hoping to move to Sisters in a couple of months. The quilting community there is so unbelievable. I just feel terrible for her.

    The fire as of 8:00p.m. is 87% contained and under control.

    This morning's news says the fire is 100% contained. Yes, we have bad fires here -- but NOTHING like they have in southern California. Thankfully we've not been affected by one. We have some teenagers walking our roads that seem to think it's okay to toss out lit cigarettes. I ever catch them at it, I'll skin them alive. And campers that don't put out their fires are MOST aggrivating!

    I will be sending out some fabric to help her re-build her stash. I just remember reading on here how some people just love there fabric and love petting it, washing it, ironing it and petting it some more. What comfort she will feel to be able to touch the fabric and feel the love of the sender!! This group is just full of love & caring! So let's share the love!!!

    This is so sad. Do you know of anything we as individuals can do to help her? I know we can never replace the memories or the quilts.

    Count me in, are we sending stash? Is that the final decision?
    May I suggest we each take a 6" square and sign it with our avi name,real name, city and state. It may mean even more to her later after the shock is over. She can keep them or put them in a quilt, scrapbook, whatever.

    YOu know, we cannot every replace the memories and the exquisite quilts but maybe we could start new memories. Something to think about. My prayers are with her about her loss.

    Send whatever fabric you'd like. Go to the page 5. Charlee put the address for the shop in.

    I saw this gal on the news! I didn't realize she had lost quilts along with all her belongings. How sad to lose such precious things!

    For all those Oregonians, there is a get together for all of us at 2 Doods on Sept 18. Maybe we could all bring an extra fat quarter to add to the pot? PM 2 Doods for more info on the gathering!

    Will do, too! Like the idea, & she will have something of 'her own' to start a new quilt with. Maybe a quilt filled w/new hopes dreams.

    Prayers and fabric going her way. Doing something MAY keep me from tearing up!

    God Bless
