Our Current Needs...Updated Regularly

2/20/2016 - Please do NOT send anything to Layers of Hope at this time. Thank you!

11/05/15 Sewing machine needles are needed right now as well as Accuquilt Go Baby dies in rectangles, postage stamps.
We were blessed to be one of the three charities this year for the Hands2Help charity quilt drive and received 28 quilts a nice box of scrap fabrics. I cannot thank you all enough and a special thanks to Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict who organizes this each year!
We are in serious need right now of postage donations, so if you can help that would be amazing. Each package we mail out costs between $17.90 (large priority mail box) to over $30 depending on size of box and number of quilts sent.

You can send a money order to:
Jean Kester
PO Box 1251
Rochester, WA  98579
**I do not currently have a bank account in the name of Layers of Hope - Quilting 911.**

We could also use stamps. As much as it pains me to say this, Christmas is only 5 months away and last year I sent out over 100 cards to quilters and others who contribute to Layers of Hope-Quilting 911. This year, I see close to 250 cards going out.

You can also submit donations via Paypal.
If you can help us with this need, someone sent me a quilt with a very nice iron on cloth (no the plastic type labels), it had our logo on it, made by quilter & state, date quilt made, donated by Layers of Hope (blank space for date donated).
I could sure use something to place on quilts when I am sending them out and I cannot afford a large sum to purchase labels.  If you can make us a batch it would be awesome. I can pay a small amount, but under $40 would be great!
