2021 Hands2Help Finish

 


Another year of H2H has come to a close.  This event is the collective efforts and brainstorm of the lovely SARAH of Confessions of a Fabric Addict.   It has evolved from very minimal, to sponsors, to quests, to pre-event tutorials.  Eventually finding reliable/most in need donation sites/groups.  When postage soared other ideas were presented.   Wow, 11 years now and I am always amazed how quilters come thru in times of crisis, needs of comfort, and community support.

I have participated since the start and then a few guild buddies joined in.  BUT this year we decided we would submit as a guild.  Our quilt drive for Services in our Communities is at the same time.  Even with Covid and lock downs these guys and gals come thru.


We are a small guild, but these folks  always excell when needed.  20 quilts were collected and donated to our local Family Services overseen by Catholic Charities.  They even supported the pillowcase drive for family Holiday boxes and placemats for Meals on Wheels.

Thank You Sarah for hosting another year and can't wait to see the final  count for the year.  Be sure to visit SARAH.

  1. Hi My name is Rebecca.i just want to share my experience with the world on how i got my love back and saved my marriage… I was married for 7 years with 4 kids and we lived happily until things started getting ugly and we had a fights and arguments almost every time… it got worse at a point that he filed for divorce… I tried my best to make him change his mind & stay with me cause i loved him with all my heart and didn’t want to loose him but everything just didn’t work out… he moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce… I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr Zuma, who eventually helped me out… I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice… He did special prayers and cast a love spell on him. Within 24hours he called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma he had cost me, moved back to the house and we continue to live happily, the kids are happy too and we are expecting our fourth child… I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news… Just thought I should share my experience cause I strongly believe someone out there needs it… You can contact him on spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com whatsapp +15068001647

  10. The quilts look wonderful. Catholic Charities does wonderful work in the communities they serve. I'm sure they were grateful. I think next year, I will look closer to home when donating my H2H quilts. The UPS price for Little Lambs packages is great, but the quilts I sent via the US Post Office were almost as much as the current price for a gram of gold.
