11 Jul Quilts Recover
We all go through difficult times in our lives but it takes a special person to look out from that haze and see that others have it worse. Cheryl Arkison of Naptime Quilter has endured quite a few hard times in the past year or so – the most recent being the loss of her beloved father. Out of her grief and caring, Cheryl has begun an organization called Quilts Recover.
Quilts Recover is an ongoing project to collect quilts for those in need, for those who are rebuilding their lives. In Cheryl’s words:
“Earthquakes, tornadoes, fires, and more. The world is full of disaster news these days. The images and stories are gut wrenching. People are having to build their lives over, starting with less than they ever had. Quilts Recover is about providing just one bit of comfort during that rebuilding process. Quilts Recover is quilters providing finished quilts to communities ravaged by disaster.
