As many of you know, I am a team member with Enchanted Makeovers which is a
nonprofit organization bringing awareness to the needs of women and children in abusive situations.
If you have the current American Patchwork & Quilting magazine
you can read about Terry and her journey on page one.
Terry Grahl has dedicated her life to making the shelters a better place
for these women and children so they can have hope and love in their lives.
This year EM has been on a nationwide tour to spread the word.
The final event for the year will be in New Jersey on October 16.
We need help from all you quilters and embroiderers for this event.
The ladies are going to be learning about yoga and we need 30 handmade mats for this activity. The mats will be used as
lap quilts after the event and will be very simple but very bright.
We want encouraging words embroidered around the borders.
I will have a very simple pattern to follow and a list of words to be embroidered. If you can only do some
embroidery (hand or machine) or only sew the quilt – that is fine, we can tag team the process.
If you need fabric, we can take care of that also.
There is a time constraint. I will need the finished mats by October 1.

I have been blessed beyond words by working with Terry and all the other volunteers.

event very special for these ladies by leaving a comment with your email address
