WARM UP MEXICO with
BUILDERS WITHOUT BORDERS UTAH
We have a wonderful opportunity to help those most in need of what we create all the time...
warm, beautiful quilts.
We are partnering with Builders Without Borders of Utah for a very special project.
For the past 20 years, Builders Without Borders of Utah has identified humble, hard-working members of the community that live in extremely poor conditions in Mexico. In their efforts, they have helped many families and businesses dramatically improve their lives by giving them a place of shelter and comfort that will withstand the ravages of nature.
Find out about the 2022 trip here:
Year after year families are looking for the warmth of quilts to help get them
through the chilly nights. Not enough get donated to fill the need.
Our mission this year is to create quilts for as many families as possible.
Bring some of your 8 1/2" (8" finished) to 12 1/2" (12" finished) orphan blocks
(and who doesn't have a few of those?) to the retreat and with the generous donations from our sponsors, we will be gathering batting, fabric for sashing, and backing. We will be spending some time on Wednesday night putting quilt tops together with the orphan blocks and donated sashing. Then, we can pass these along to others (or even some of you long arm quilters that would like to donate a little quilting time), who want some service projects to help get these babies quilted up. We would like to have them all finished and gatherd so by next fall, we can send many quilts down to help those in need!
WHAT IS ANOTHER WAY WE CAN HELP?
We have been blessed with so much generosity from all the attendees over the years,
that we thought a good ole fashioned raffle would be so much fun!
What will we raffle??
A handmade Camden Bag filled with goodies!
We will reveal the filled bag closer to the time of the retreat!
Raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 a ticket at the retreat and all money raised will be donated to Builders Without Borders of Utah to be used to purchase building supplies for project 2023.
