Spreading the word..........................................

Deb is very generous and has been known to surprise people who are in need of a big hug by gifting them one of her beautifully made quilts.
Giving quilt hugs, that are loving and warm and provide a sense that these people are not alone in dark times. This is what Deb of 'works in progress' does makes quilt hugs! From her own money buys fabric, pieces the quilt tops, then sends the tops to her local professional quilter to be quilted.
Debs dream is to buy a Juki machine to do the quilting herself.
Cat & some other bloggy friends have put a call out for donations so Deb can buy her 'dream machine'. Can you help?
The gals have set up a Facebook page too, see here.
Maybe you can help in a way similar to me? I am donating my quilting services up to the value of $300.00 to be auctioned, you can read Cat's post about the auction call out here.
Maybe you can donate some money or a service, or bid on some goodies in the Auction?
Quilters are a generous bunch, how many of you have made a quilt or two or more! Only to be given to someone in need? Such a special treasured, heartfelt gift. A quilt is more than just pieces of fabric sewn together to make 'a blanket'. They symbolise love, warm wishes, 'I am thinking of you' vibes & so much more.
Lets help HELP others!
