If you are quilting on your own time, donate some of your skills to Japan! Quilters Newsletter is collecting quilts to send to Japan and help those in need.
Here’s how you can be part of this important worldwide response:
• Send quilts of any size from baby to adult to:
741 Corporate Circle, Suite A
Golden, CO 80401
• Mark your box: “Quilts for Japan.” (see note below)
• 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.
TEACHERS with an interest in quilting, fabric arts or just having fun should be enrolled in our Raw Fibers P-credit course which starts April 9th. You will learn spinning, weaving, printing and batik techniques and collaborate with your peers and our teaching artists to determine the best ways to integrate what you learn into your own classroom. If you love sewing, quilting, knitting or crocheting this class is for you.
Sign up today through the NYC DOE After School Professional Development Program.
