Helping Haiti: The Auction Winners...

I am so excited writing this. This silent auction started as a tiny thing; we just wanted to use whatever samples we had in our shop to raise a bit of money for Haiti disaster relief. And then it sort of grew a life of its own, thanks to many good folks.

Thanks to Joanna Figueroa, Stephanie Dunphy, Laurie Simpson, Pam Buda, Anne Sutton, Lissa Alexander, Barbara Jones, Bari J., Genevieve Gail, Barb & Mary, the Fat Quarter Shop girls, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Henry Glass Fabrics, Denise Sheehan, Mary Cowan, and Happy Zombie for your quilt/craft donations! And thanks to American Patchwork & Quilting and everyone else who helped us get the word out! We didn't solicit ANYONE for ANYTHING -- they all contacted us individually and offered to donate after we had already announced the auction. Awesome.

And thank you all for participating with your comments & bids, for your willingness to use the financial resources you have, no matter the amount, to send desperately needed help & hope to Haiti. It is still their number one need for now, and we are moved that we can offer anything at all.

Here are the winners! If you have not already, please e-mail Jocelyn proof of your donation to any of the organizations listed in this post, and we will arrange for your quilt to be sent to you!

Actually it's Kerry and I have no idea why my details didn't show up. Thought I had logged in using OpenID.
