Quilt for a Cause

Long before I became a serious quilter I learned something about the quilt world and quilters that remains true today. Quilters are the most generous, caring, and giving individuals one will ever have the pleasure of meeting. They participate through their quilts in national, worldwide, and community causes.

The following is a listing of causes that I have discovered in the various quilting magazines that I subscribe to. It is by no means complete.

Hopefully, this list will make the reader aware of the many causes the quilting world has discovered. Maybe you will find a cause close to your heart that has touched your family.

TSND will publish your quilt causes, where it must be about quilting and it must be a charitable cause. Please send your e-mail to TSND with the details (website, contact, etc) about the cause.

Please note that inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by TNSD. It is only a collection of websites where it is entirely up to the reader to determine for themselves the validity of each. TSND does take the time to visit each web site listed to verify that the web site does exist, and that it appears to act in accordance to its stated purpose. However, final validation belongs to the reader.
