As I reflect on the past year and all the challenges we've been faced with, I can't help but be thankful, too. I have always know quilters are kind, inclusive, amazing artists, yet your enthusiasm for the Elvira, Hope, and Harmony Quiltalongs was stunning! I would never have anticipated participation from tens of thousands of quilters worldwide. Your generosity resulted in donations in excess of $43,000. 

In Decembers past, my family and I have been able to share our gratitude directly to people in need by handing out quilts at the Harbor Lights Center in downtown Minneapolis. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 restrictions, we cannot do that this year. Instead, I will be a making monetary donation to three area non-profits that are close to my heart; the Salvation Army Harbor Lights Center, Mary's Place and Southern Valley Alliance. These three organizations offer shelter and hope to families and women in particular, who are in need. 

I would like to offer Hope, Harmony, Elvira and Nova once more this year as an opportunity for you to join me with a donation.
