OOPS. I put the wrong contact email for Sandra and the Cresco Ladies. Sandra’s email is email@example.com. I decided to reprint the post in case some of you were trying to reach Sandra and couldn’t because of the incorrect email address:
The Cresco Ladies are at it again…helping people. Those ladies are some of the most generous ladies I know. If you’ve read the blog, you already know that the gals make LOTS of quilt tops. Many of the tops you see are completed by finishers made by the Cresco Ladies.
The Ladies also finish many tops of their own. They have an in-house finisher who finishes many tops and the Ladies donate them locally.
Recently Sandra, my contact for the group, contacted me and asked if I would keep a watch out for any lace, buttons, or trims. I wanted to know what she was up to that made her need them. She sent me a picture of these cute little hearts.
The Ladies have been making the hearts but need some supplies to jazz them up a bit.
The program that came up with this idea is called “I Found a Quilted Heart”. You can find their website HERE. Feel free to follow the link to learn more about it. The idea looks fun and some of you might like to participate in your area.
Sandra asked if I came across some buttons, trims, ribbons, or laces…I said I typically don’t. BUT, I said I bet that some of you might have some things that you might want to donate. If you do, the Ladies would love any donations.
But wait…there’s more.
You know those Cresco Ladies aren’t busy enough already. They have yet another new project they have been working on. These…
These are cardholders. They are making these and will be donating them to the area nursing homes. Many people there like to play cards but their fingers and hands just don’t work the way they previously worked.
These cardholders are made with CDs. Does anyone have any unwanted CDs? The girls would love to get them and put them to good use.
If you have any donations that might help the Cresco Ladies, please contact Sandra at this email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
It would be most helpful if you contacted Sandra directly. She can answer any questions or share her email address with you for sending items.
The Cresco Ladies aren’t the only group I would like to help with donations. If your group or organization is looking for simple items like these to use to make charitable items that you are going to others, feel free to send me a write-up with pictures and I can make a blog post like this for your group. I can never guarantee the response. It might be a little…it might be a lot depending on your request. You can send the request to email@example.com.
