Which is why I am grateful for events like this to put life in perspective.
Last Saturday I was able to attend the humanitarian event that April put together, assembling quilts to be sent for relief in Japan. Here you can see April at her machine talking to Sachiko who’s family lives in the affected areas of the disaster. April counted at least 96 women who showed up to help and there may have been more. Almost 40 quilts were assembled in one day. It’s not too late to help. April just received large fabric donations from Fat Quarter Shop and Robert Kaufman and she will send some of it to you to assemble donor quilts. Read here for information.
Having Sachiko there made the event even more meaningful. You can read more about Sachiko’s and her family’s experiences and other ways to help here.
