Thank You

Thank you to the quilt community for your donations. We received quilts from as far away as Australia and supplies to replace the quilt fabric and notions lost in the fire. The fire that destroyed our home was devastating, but we quickly learned that we had a loving and caring community of people surrounding us.

Also, thank you to the quilt shops who collected quilts and blankets for the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. We sent 477 items all together which included baby clothes, sheets, mittens and hats as well as the quilts, blankets and afghans. We far exceed the items we lost in the house fire.

My husband, Wolf, maintains the “Gathering of Eagles” ministry which has been a supporter of Pine Ridge for many years. Wolf and I will continue to collect quilts and other items throughout the year for a shipment planned for September 2014. We no longer accept used items. Pine Ridge has indicated that they desperately need baby clothes. We ship directly to the local church on the reservation which has a distribution center where items can be stored and kept clean and dry, then freely given to those in need.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything.
