A Message from Hillary Roberts About Hurricane Relief Quilts


“Since the beginning of November, Blankie Depot has received hundreds of phone calls, emails, and shipped quilts from around the globe.  Quilters from 43 states, Canada, and France have reached out to NJ families impacted by Hurricane Sandy.  Knitters and crocheters from 14 states have donated hundreds of warm hats, scarves and gloves.

A sampling of donation quilts.

The immediate response from the American Quilter’s Society members, guilds, and the charitable community has touched our hearts and lifted spirits throughout the state.

We will continue to accept twin and queen size quilts and handmade items (hats & scarfs for adults) only until February 15, 2013.  After that date, we will resume our regular operating schedule.”
