Burning Quilts

[Crossposted from Tribe. I have no connection to the project; I just think it's a rockin' idea.]

Do you sew? Do you know someone who sews? If you answer "YES" to either of those questions, you can help. Here is how:

  1. We've started a Burning Quilt project here in Santa Cruz. http://www.burningbeach.com/quilt.html
    We adopted a family shelter, which is slated to open in December. We are committed to making a handmade quilt for every bed. 27 family beds, plus half as many cribs.
    You can donate fabric, unless you would also like to donate time. We accept all washable fabric, including old (not frayed) blue jeans. And fur fabrics. Imagine a baby blanket made of furs. De-Lucious.
  2. Don't donate to our project. Start your own. Adopt a family shelter in your area. Make the default world more like the Playa, and make someone's experience more like Home.
