I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan this week teaching at the AQS show and in meeting and talking with people teaching and attending the show I have again been awed by stories of how sewing and quilting has changed lives. There is power in making.
This is especially true for the women who are being served by the work of Action Kivu. My friend, Alissa has held a fundraiser for this organization for the past three years and it's time again to raise money to support the good work of Action Kivu. Let's exercise the power of our community to help.
We in the quilting/sewing community have breathed life into Action Kivu and over the years have seen the money we give turn into women who have gained skills to support themselves and their children. The staff at Action Kivu cannot do this work without our donations.
