Merryman House 2018

Post by gmaann » Mon Mar 05, 2018 11:30 am

Merryman House is a shelter for abused women and their children in Paducah, KY. The whole city of Paducah rolls out the red carpet for quilters during the AQS Quilt Week, and donating quilts to Merryman House seems a good way to thank them for their hospitality.

Several faithful forum members have already contacted me to see if we would be doing this again this year. Yes, we will!!

This is a project that was started in 2008 by QIAD Linda, at that time the Marketing Director for QIAD. It has been ongoing since that time and Merryman House is SO appreciative of our efforts.

I will be going to work for QIAD in Paducah again 'one more time' and will take quilts and other donations. Please message me for my address. You can also send items to my attention to the QIAD store in Paducah AFTER APRIL 1.

At first we did just QIAD pattern quilts, and had a Show & Tell for Eleanor before presenting them to a representative of Merryman House, but now we take any quilt appropriate for a woman or child.

Any quilt is welcome and so are pillowcases, coloring books and crayons. This is truly a Project from the Heart!

Thank you so much!
Ann/gmaann

Hi Ann, I have one finished and hope to quilt two more tops and finish them. I think Dori has one and Judy has some pillowcases. We will be in Ky, in about a month. Should we leave them at El's store for you?

Ann,
I have so many swap blocks that we have done on the forum, so I will definitely have one ready for you and hoping maybe another.

Pretty sure I have your address, but if you wouldn’t mind sending it again in a pm, I would appreciate it.

Thank you for always reminding us of such a good cause.

Ann got a lot of crayons and coloring books when I was at Hobby Lobby Thursday. Will be putting them in the mail this week to you. Since I didn't have a quilt to send felt this was next best thing.
