PostSubject: info on quilts for Japan   Thu Apr 21, 2011 3:08 pm

Here's an article and address for sending quilts to Japan.

Make a Comfort Quilt
As the stunned world watched images of the destruction created by the devastating tsunami and earthquake(s) in Japan, it was natural that efforts to help would come to mind. Along with many other groups and organizations offering their services to those who have lost everything, we quilters can do our part by doing what we do best--by making quilts. Recently, the editor of the Japanese quilt magazine Patchwork Quilt Tsushin requested that TQS ask our members for help. If you would like to make and send a quilt to Japan, here are a few guidelines to keep in mind:

Please use either cotton or poly batting.
Quilts can be hand-tied, or quilted by machine or hand.
The overall length and width should measure at least 40 inches (100cm), but should not be as large as a king-size quilt.
Please do not send your quilt before the end of April.
At this time, the infrastructure is not able to handle a large number of quilts.
When the time comes, please send quilts to the following location:

Patchwork Tsushin Co. Ltd
2-21-2 Yushima
Bunkyo-Ku
Tokyo, Japan

I'm wondering if we should make some for tornado victims! Surely a group will organize that.
