Calling all sewers and quilters! Thearica of Pigtales and Quilts is heartsick to learn her dear friend, also a quilter, lost her home to wildfires over the weekend. I found this video A Tragic Day – Fire Storm Mannford Oklahoma by storm chasers if you are curious about the area that was hit.

We sewist all know good stash can take years to accumulate. Oh, and Thearica is not asking for any new supplies, she only wants us to take a look around and see what we have to spare. Extras. Several quilters have already responded. Be sure and read all the comments as Thearica answers some questions about what to send. Go HERE to get details on how you can help.

A big thank you goes to Jen for bringing this situation to my attention. You rock!

    I cannot thank either of you enough for shouting this out! There has been a tremendous show of support from quilters everywhere… even outside of the United States!!

    And I know if Debbie had even received just one box of goodies.. she would have shared with her friends who also lost their homes and their belongings…

    The tremendous show of support is going to allow Debbie to share with so many.. You are not only touching one person but so many others through Debbie.

    Bless you all!

    I had already planed a big de-stash this weekend and was looking for a worthy cause! Thanks!

    I have posted a photo presentation of all packages on my blog today if you would be so kind as to give a shout out so the quilters who gave by finding out about it by way of your site can view the presentation. Thanks so very much!
