Right now I am not going to set a hard to meet deadline, so this is what I have planned for delivery dates.
First drop off will be on April 5th if I have enough quilts to deliver, if not I am shooting for a delivery date of April 19th as I expect by then I will have lots to deliver.
If you live in the Washington state area near or north of Seattle, you can drop off quilts to the following:
Town Square Fabric and Yarn
445 SW 152nd Street
Tell Christina or Cynthia they are for Layers of Hope - Quilting 911 Oso quilt drive and they will hold them.
If you live closer to the Oso area or Canada, you may drop them off with:
Mary Udman at the Skagit Valley YMCA
215 E Fulton Street
In the Centralia/Chehalis Area there are two drop off points:
476 N. Market Street
Tell Jody or Bobbi they are for Oso
1728 Gold Street
These people lost their homes, their families and their loved ones, they do not want your junk, your garbage, your torn, stained, frayed, cigarette smelling dog won't have it blankets.
I am accepting new handmade quilts not used, not store purchased, but lovingly made quilts or knitted or crocheted blankets. If upon sorting through the quilts I find junk, they will be put in the garbage where they belong.
I say this because it happens during every disaster, people pay good money to mail garbage and that is sad. It is about making them smile if even for a moment, not making them think we are in more need than they are!
