I recently got two different emails from blog readers. I’m hoping someone might be able to help me help them.
The first comes from Sandie in Kansas City, MO : “I read your blog and noticed that you are setting up lists of people who need quilting supplies for charity projects. The posting that caught my eye was the lady that makes burial clothes for infants that don’t survive delivery. I have boxes of lace that I used to use when I made doll clothes eons ago and would love to pass it on to her to use – and to get it out of my sewing room. I didn’t know if you would be comfortable in passing along my email to her or if you can provide me with her email and/or mailing address. If I can get in contact with her I can take it from there! I’ve provided my name and mailing address and please feel free to provide it and my email address to her.”
UGH.. Awhile back someone had contacted me or left a blog comment telling me that they were looking lace. Do you think I can find the email or comment. I can’t. UGH. I am so frustrated as this sounded like such a wonderful, well needed cause. I’d love for these two people to be able to link up and work together for good. Does anyone know who this might be that could use the lace?
I have another email from a blog reader, Beth, saying: “I have been searching and searching for a place that will take the little slivers from squaring up, thread snips, batting scraps etc. I had a place awhile back that would take this type of material, along with clean clothing with holes (not something you would send to the thrift shop) and recycle it into insulation. Might you know of a place like this? I wouldn’t mind shipping it if it means keeping it out of the landfill.”
I am certain there is someone out there who could use this for making pet beds. I hear of people doing this regularly. Is there anyone willing to take Beth up on the offer?
Let me know if anyone can help with suggestions. I’ll pass them along to the people wishing to donate.
