Hello to all my friends!! I am happy to help a friend that is trying to do something wonderful for Christmas , she has a goal to make 50 baby quilts for the Orphanage in the city in which she lives ,she needs help with baby quilt tops which she can add the batting and the backing and do the quilting on her machine, she is located in Thessaloniki ,Greece and she has set up a studio in her home . She is very actively showing and helping women learn the craft, she is also planning on having the lady's which she has taught go in and show the young girls in the orphanage learn the craft and help familiarize the craft , which is lacking in Greece.
I want to go back a bit as to how I met Kristina ,I met her through her facebook before I started blogging, she cleverly titled Quilters of Greece Unite. I quickly became a member and wrote to her and soon we talked on the phone and got to know each other. I have even met her in person and is just as sweet in person as on the phone. I met up with her when she and her hubby had come to Athens with a friend visiting the City, we had arranged the day, and so we met and sat down at a little cafe under the Acropolis on a sunny day early spring , and we had even brought fq's with us and swapped ,I have since used some of her fabric in my applique ,just the right green for a tree .
Kristina has been quilting for over 15 years and is very active in her community she is also planning on going to the local senior citizens center and to the same ,and then she plans on going to the home for human Trafficking and offer the comfort of her quilts and to
teach the women the craft. Kristina and I would greatly appreciate a baby or any small quilt top that can be stuffed in an envelope and sent to her in time to be quilted for Christmas . I myself have a couple atarted and plan on finishing them today ,I thank all of you for taking time to read ,and or help out in this great charitble cause , My best wishes to all.
