Quilts for the fire victims in Weed, Ca

We will be making quilts to get to the people who have lost homes in Weed, Ca.  It is about 2 hours north of my home here in Northern California.  I have a friend who has a home in a small town close by.  She has friends who have lost homes in the fire.  Half the town was lost last night.  About 150 familes lost their homes in one day.

It seems that half of my state is on fire right now and while we can't help everyone, we can help some of them.  We won't be able to help all of the families, but we can help some and will do what we can to bring comfort.  Sometimes it seems like there are just too many and it seems too easy just to do nothing because there is no way to fix every problem.  But I can do something and start a ripple effect.  I can help one or two and those people in turn can eventually help someone else and pass along the help eventually.  Imagine if nobody did anything to help, just because we all felt powerless to solve the whole problem?

I'll be getting the word out today and my 'gang' of quilting ladies will attack the problem full force!  We have Binky Sunday on the 21st (this week) and we'd love to have you join us.  We will be working on Christmas Stockings for our service men and women and veterans and quilts for Weed!  We meet at A Quilted Heart in Vacaville from 1-4pm.
