This just in from patti Carey of Nortcott Fabrics in Canada:
Northcott has been contacted by several interested and concerned quilters asking if we would be able to assist in getting quilts to the earthquake/tsunami victims in Japan. The answer is YES. At this point, we have agreed to collect quilts until end April. We will then ship them to Japan, to the editor of Patchwork Quilt Tsushin Magazine.
The quilts should be NEW, and anything from crib to twin/double is acceptable, though twin is preferred. Due to the difficulty in shipping quilts across the US border, we are asking that only quilts from Canadian addresses be shipped to Northcott. Kindly ship the quilts to:
Northcott – Quilts for Japan
101 Courtland Ave.
Any quilters in the USA can contact equilter.com, as they are collecting quilts from US addresses.
