Quilting for Peace PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Quilting for Peace free pdf This is a collection of more than 25 heartwarming and inspiring essays about individuals and organizations devoted to making quilts and other necessities for those in need, plus 15 charity projects from organizations profiled in the book. As crafters of all ages take to their sewing machines in unprecedented numbers, many of them join a movement to distribute hope and warmth to those in need through quilting. These are volunteers who have inherited a tradition of comfort and protest and a belief that they can make the world a better place one stitch at a time. "Quilting for Peace", the follow-up to STC's "Knitting for Peace", profiles these quilters in more than 25 essays about individuals and organizations devoted to making quilts and other necessities for the needy. The efforts range from Newborns in Need, a group that makes clothing for premature babies at nearby hospitals to Quilts of Valor, which makes quilts to honour wounded soldiers. This timely book also includes 15 projects and guidelines for quilters who want to contribute to an existing effort or establish a new one.
