Local quilters send comfort to victims of California fires
December 20, 2018
A group of local quilters has just finished stitching a batch of 48 quilts that they made to send a little comfort to the victims devastated by the Paradise, CA, fires.
The quilters come from Boulder County, Denver and Fort Collins, meeting once a month in Gunbarrel at eQuilter’s classroom, to create comfort quilts which are sent all over the world to areas that have suffered natural disasters. The owners of eQuilter, their customers and their friends donate their time, effort and materials for each project. eQuilter is then entrusted to ensuring the quilts are distributed to those with the greatest need.
Through eQuilter’s partnerships with relief organizations such as Engineers Without Borders and Mission of Love, the group has sent over 13,000 donated quilts to people in need since 1999.
The group will continue to meet monthly to stitch and stuff their gestures of caring, because they recognize that there will always be a need for comfort and warmth. For more information, visit www.equilter.com or call 303-527-0856.
