My heart goes out to the people of Joplin Missouri as they sort through what is left of their city.
I received an email from Ackfield Manufacturing today and have added it to the end of this post. They are based in Missouri, and are asking their quilting friends and business associates to send the call out for help for the people of Joplin.
Ackfield makes many wire hangers and stands for quilts, mini quilts and stitchery pieces.
If you have a quilt you can part with, they are asking for it to be shipped to them. As you can see these people are left with nothing. Bad weather and tornadoes continue to batter the area. If you can, please consider their request. Consider also how many children are left with nothing, baby and children's quilts would be greatly helpful as well.
This man is at what used to be his mother-in-laws home sorting through the rubble. Her entire neighborhood was leveled.
This used to be a subdivision of homes, all have been leveled.
