I hope you are enjoying this very pleasant time of year. (Except for those of you dealing with the crazy storms and flooding!) I am writing to you from San Antonio in Texas, where I am attending a couple performances of the opera ‘Barber of Seville’. A friend of the family has a lead part, and I have a lovely invite to a reception tonight (including tour of costumes and props) and the cast party tomorrow. San Antonio has such a rich culture of color and art…and music… so I am also just wandering around soaking up the post-Cinco-de-Mayo ambiance and enjoying the Riverwalk. Flying home Monday to get ready for Quilt Market!
Here is a recent report from one of our Charity Program recipients:
Kathy Price, director of Mission of Love writes –
“Thirteen Air Force Pallets of educational, medical and humanitarian aid are staged in Charleston for arrival into Guatemala City any day soon. The Denton office is just waiting for a plane to fly our aid.”
“This past week I have obtained two fire trucks, one ambulance, 15,000 pounds of corn, furnishings for seven classrooms, 4 newborn incubators, 6 heating units for newborns in which will save infant lives for the indigenous Mayan communities.”
Thank you Kathy and MOL volunteers, for making our contributions stretch to help so many in need!
Reminder: the deadline for dropping off quilts to be hand-carried to earthquake victims in Nepal is this Weds May 10. The CU chapter of Engineers Without Borders is leaving May 15 on a 3 month working trip, and they are going to carry those quilts in their backpacks when they hike up to the remote villages that were destroyed by the earthquakes. Amazing young people!
With Mothers Day on the horizon, I’d like to remind you that our eQuilter Gift Certificates are always a great gift for the avid quilter. We can send a lovely color gift card through the mail, or send via email for a last-minute gift.
