FLOODING 2013 - Quilts wanted

Hello everyone,

As you likely have heard, there has been unbelievable flooding, damage and evacuations across Alberta and now into Saskatchewan.

Quilts are needed!  Lee from Calgary asked me to post up this link...

This emergency help bulletin is for Calgary.  I personally don't have any other direct links for sending help (quilts, food, volunteer time, or $) to other communities in desperate need.  PLEASE feel free to load up the comments section of this post with any direct receiving sites so that we can all help out even from afar.

THANK YOU & our hearts go out to all the hundreds of thousands of people who have lost their homes & had their belongings destroyed.  It's not over yet.  The water still remains and is moving though Saskatchewan now.

All the best to everyone and thank you to all those who are able to pitch in!

Monika K. on behalf of The Needle & Thread Network.

ps - pass it on...
