My Sewing Room Special Bulletin - Alberta Flood 2013
Thoughts And Prayers
My Sewing Room extends our heart-felt thoughts and prayers to all of our family and friends in the sewing and quilting community. We hope that everyone remains safe and dry during this time.
If you need or want help in any way, please do not hesitate to ask.
Our store will remain open regular hours to support you and your families. But please - only travel when safe to do so.
What Can I Do To Help?
Stay home if you can and away from all areas affected.
Listen to the news and follow all instructions or evacuation orders.
If you have a finished quilt that you are willing to donate, please bring it in.
If you have a quilt that you are working on and are willing to donate it, please finish it at home and bring it in.
There is no immediate need, so please - only bring them in when safe to do so.
Scrap Fabric Donations
My Sewing Room is accepting fabric scraps suitable for quilts - cotton, flannel, batting.
Please cut them into:
SQUARES: 3", 4", 5" or 6" squares; or
STRIPS: strips of any width
Then bring them to the store.
Money donations are best sent to the Canadian Red Cross or other legitimate charities. Please be wary of anyone approaching you for money - it’s an unfortunate fact that some people will try to take advantage of people in situations like this.
