Update on Quilts for Maui
When we posted the quilt drive for Maui two weeks ago, my prayer was that we would get 50 quilts. Our grand total was 150!  Three shipments have been sent and the remainder will follow soon. The manager of The Maui Quilt Shop, Marilyn Sameshima, has been amazed by our donation. She said the word is out and last week several organizations came to pick up quilts- the Maui Filipino community sponsors, Sacred Heart Parish of Lahaina, Lahaina Methodist church, and many single families. She said all of the responses were the same- "they held the quilts tight and cried because they had something that belonged to them". As people are settled into hotels the quilts are bright and personal. I can’t thank you all enough for your generosity. Me ke aloha me ka mahalo (With love and thanks)

Julia and I will be in booth 724 and 725 of The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show!  If you are planning to go, please come visit us!
