Quilts for Nashville

My dear friend Pam lives near Nashville. Their house suffered serious damage in the recent flood. But she's not complaining, she's collecting quilts to give to families who had even more seroius damage and lost all their personal household belongings.

Pam is a quilter with a big heart, and if you donate a quilt, she will find just the right family who will treasure it. You can reach her directly at: pam@realwomenquilt.com.

I don't have a quilt but a quilt top? Let me know and I mail it off. So sad to see the heartache, I could not think how it would feel to have lost everything.

hugs

There is not shortage of generous quilters in the world!

Since we are trying to rebuild our house, I'm not able to take on unfinished quilts. But the good news is that Nashville has entered into the painfully slow process of rebuilding. You don't need to send a quilt today.

Pull out your UFO's (surely you have some!) and finish them!! If some of your UFO's have grown stale to you, just finish them in whatever way is easiest for you and send them to me!

The folks that have lost ALL their belongings will treasure the quilt that you send and rejoice that they have something made with love to add to their home.

Thanks so much for considering this.

Blessings,
Pam Stahl

Is there a reason she doesn't even mention the project on her own site? I've done LOTS of charity work in my life and, unfortunately, have learned to do research before donating anything. Details are essential.

Marijka,

Yes, there is a good reason. :)

Pam has her hands full while she and her family (husband and three kiddos)are staying with relatives and trying to get their house rebuilt. She will post about her quilt project as soon as she can. Pam just wanted to give us a heads up so we can start planning.

I'm going to make a quilt for her to give away. I know that she'll find just the right family who will value it. I'd trust Pam with a lot more than a quilt. :) She'll be making charity quilts as soon as she can too.
