Just One Slab Mail


Just two weeks of mail. And that's not counting the boxes in my garage or the stuff I brought back with me from the Vancouver and Fraser Valley Modern Quilt Guilds!

I've got a lot of processing to do. Just so you know, I enter every single package into a spreadsheet and label every single slab with the maker's name. That way, I can make labels for each finished quilt. Quilts need their history documented, even the donated ones.

This week is the deadline for receiving any donations. Assembly starts next week!

If you have sent a package, I'm sorry, but right now I cannot confirm if I've received it. There are just too many awesome donations to respond individually by email. Once I've caught up on processing I will post a list of donations (modified so everyone's name is not splashed all over the internet). Keep an eye on that list for your donation.

If you've responded to a post looking for a mailing address and you haven't heard from me, that's because you are a no-reply commenter and I cannot send something back to you. Please email me: mamaark AT gmail DOT com.

Wow! I am sending a parcel with a quilt top and extra slabs tomorrow from me and my quilting friends. There are pictures on my blog. Thanks for spearheading this project.

I have a few slabs for you. My little guy got sick, so I haven't managed to make more or get these to you. I live in Calgary, so I can get them to you quickly. Could you email me your address? Thanks. tmforjc (at) gmail (dot) com

Just the best project ever - glad to help Calgary and use up my scraps at the same time. Can you imagine realizing that others in the country are aware and care about you when you lost everything and the flood news is replaced by other stuff... You do - thanks for organizing this Cheryl. It feels great to help just a little bit.

I forgot to request your mailing address. I have a couple of slabs ready to go and then I had my duh moment. I have subscribed to your blog as well to keep up with all of your fabulous projects. My email is craftingmomma07@gmail.com. I will get them in the mail on Monday. I hope I didn't miss the deadline.
