We’re pleased to be a part of the ongoing charitable efforts of Quilts Beyond Borders, an organization that reaches out to provide handmade quilts and spread love and hope to under-served children, mainly orphans, across the world.
Organizer Tina Freudenberger explains that the not-for-profit group completely relies upon the generosity of our volunteers and corporate gifts, and recently acknowledged its supporters online. We certainly appreciate the work of QBB and its volunteers, another fine example of quilters coming together to share their time and talents.
If you’re attending Quilt Festival in Houston this year, you’ll find QBB in the 300 aisle, near the Quilts of Valor and American Sewing Guild area.
I was at their booth in 2012 and picked up their brochure-Nice to hear they wanted tops and someone else would finish them-I sent them 4 tops in one of the Post Office boxes and they fit. One was one of those we put together in strips 2 then 4 then 8 etc. Sorry I forget what it was called. Thanks for doing this at your shop it reminds me that it is time to send them some more!! Ginnye
I am one of the volunteers for QBB and I just wanted to say Thank You for your continued support in our cause. There are so many children (and even adults) that need a bit extra love and warmth in their lives and our goal it to provide this to them. We are forever grateful!
Thanks for blogging about Quilts without Borders. I’ve been wanting to get involved with an organization like this and didn’t know where to start my research, so I appreciate this information very much. Thank you again.
My pleasure, Margaret, and thanks for your interest!
