Attention Long Armers

I am a hand quilter. No, it's not because I'm some sort of purist or quilt snob, it is because my machine quilting is the pits. I will machine quilt preemie quilts (nothing bigger than 30x30) and I only do straight lines. I do, however, like to make bigger scrap quilts which I donate to charity. I have belonged to many online groups over the last few years and have donated many blocks and tops. So, you ask, what is the problem? I'll tell you. My sewing time is limited, my funds are limited and to ship a package, I really have to go out of my way. When I donate a top all I ask is an acknowledgement that it has been received. Is that too much to ask?

I would really love to see a picture of my top completed before it is donated but that is not really necessary, just a wish. All I want is an email saying "I got it"

I have had ladies tell me they are too busy to acknowledge receipt. I worry that the Post Office lost my package, so I don't think that is asking too much.


Are you a longarmer? Do you quilt tops for charity? Would you like this top? Will you email me when you get it?


First come, first serve.

I have taken to enclosing a SASP, self addressed stamped post card, so I have been getting better acknowledgement of donations. You are right, it is nice to know it arrived.

Ann, I sent you an email but I love this quilt...I'm in Chinese Coins mode this year with HeartStrings and I'd love to finish this one for the project.

I was going to tell you to contact Mary but she beat me to it. :) I don't think that being courteous is ever asking too much....

Ah shoot I was going to volunteer but maybe your next Chinese Coin I can quilt. I do have a long arm. Mary, of course, is fantastic.
