Many, Many Thanks!!
Your donation MADE a difference.
We received more than 2,000 cubic feet of sewing supplies from all over the country.
Whether it was Marileah Mansfield from Texas who trekked to Iowa with her daughter and great-grandson to deliver a trailer full of sewing supplies or the many people who shipped in or delivered sewing supplies, we have been sharing your generosities with the flood victims. More than 30 volunteers showed up on a Saturday evening in August to help us fill up more than 30 banquet tables so that more than 100 victims
could come and freely select sewing supplies to take to their trailers and their rentals and their families who are housing them in this time of loss of their homes and property.
EIHQ's S.O.S. group is collecting quilts. Many people across the country sent quilts to our store. Those were given to Project Linus and S.O.S. to be distributed. As winter approaches Iowa, those who have lost homes and property will be facing the cruel nip of winter and quilts will be in need. Make sure you are on our mailing list to receive details of where to send quilt donations to be distributed to victims.
