The crazy quilting community just launched a fundraising project for the recovery effort in Japan. Called Hearts and Hands for Sendai here’s how they describe it,
This project will be dedicated to helping those affected by the earthquake tsunami disaster in Japan. Per Hideko Ishida’s request, all quilts will become a part of an exhibit in Japan where money will be raised by viewing the quilts. Ultimately, these quilts may be auctioned and the proceeds given to a charity designated by Hideko Ishida, our Japanese CQ Sister! We will keep everyone informed as time progresses. This project is open to the quilting community at large!
