My sister has been doing this for the past 10 yrs, in OR. (she used to have her picture on A Common Thead's website, but they updated with new people). She doesn't sew (she can but doesn't like it) she crochets. So I keep her supplied with yarn (christmas, birthdays, whatever). She also volunteers during their marathon quilting sessions. (not sewing, but helping out with fabric and such). (she also volunteers at her local library and a local animal shelter...she supports her local Zoo, by being a 'patron', bats are her favorites.)
I'm very proud of my sister...I always have been. (her birthday is Sept 27th...
she'll be 44, people she works with think she's in her 30's) Boy am I getting old....I'm the oldest by 7yrs...(well 6 yrs and 9mnths) :wink:

It is a wonderful program. Working in a fabric shop ladies come in and tell me about their blankets for Project Linus.
