All donated quilts and quilting supplies expect to be delivered to Grand Forks by the beginning of September.
People can drop off their handmade quilts and new or gently used quilting supplies at Chicken Feed Quilts in Coaldale, and Fabric Fusion, Finely Quilted, Lethbridge Sewing Centre, Sewing Lane, and Village Quilts in Lethbridge, Willow Creek Quilts in Claresholm, Diamond Fabrics in Taber and Imagination Un-Limited in Cardston Distribution of donated items will be undertaken by the Grand Forks Quilt shop.
 “The greatest need is for twin, and double sized quilts for teenagers and adults, but we will happily accept all quilts of any size. This is a wonderful opportunity to finish projects”, said Catherine Korolek, Grand Forks Heart n’ Sole Quilts shop.
