Hope Squared!



We have been following this site for a while - http://www.crafthope.com/ .
I loved how they made sock monkeys for a burn center, and sent dolls to Nicagrauga. All for kids! Now they are making quilts, any size, and fabric, they just ask that it is in squares . These quilts are for kids that don't have what my kids and grand kids have. A warm place with parents who love them. Breaks my heart!

Inspirational! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we were going to participate with craft hope, but instead decided to make quilts in squares for kids in our neck of the woods!

We were going to do it as a family, Morgan, Erin, Paige (in Moscow Idaho) and Granny!

What we forgot is we have Jake, and he never wants to be left out, and being the only boy, sometimes he is!

Just so happens he is on a committee, the Purple Pack, at Weber State University, and they are looking for service projects all the time! They want to help too!!!!

GREAT GREAT GREAT!!! WEBER STATE (University) Now we need fabric!

If you want to participate in way, shape or form, we would love it!!!!

If you have fabric to donate, or money for batting, or time to sew squares - please please email me greavesma@hotmail.com. Or leave a comment!

This sounds like a great project! I would love to make some squares. Give me details; size of squares?, for what age? infant/toddler or older child? What is the deadline for getting them to you?

Ugh!! Wish I lived closer. You Greaves girls have so much fun!...and Jake.
