Donations update - 4/2

I have fielded a couple of questions this week from blog readers who have very generously offered to send donations if I'd like them. I am sure that I have said this before, but I'm gonna say it again - I am just amazed at the generosity that people are exhibiting this year. Even with the country in the economic shape that it is, people are offering gift certificates and kits and things from their stash to help with this event. And the letters that I am getting from the donors are pretty cool, too! Just this week, someone thanked us for putting together such an event and promoting quilting at the same time!

Here are things that I have collected this week so far.

Deborah from the Thread Shed in Rochester, IN sent a $25 gift certificate for her shop. Woo hoo!

I agree with you about how overwhelming it is to see people's generosity. I'm excited about buying the raffle tickets at the retreat to raise even more money for St. Jude's. It's a great cause, a weekend doing what we love with people who share our humor, joy, and passion. What could be better?
