Humanitarian quilting groups are now active in Europe, making quilts according to MCC guidelines for people surviving a calamity. MCC distributes the quilts: their extensive experience and commitment guarantee effective results where they're most urgently needed.
More quilters can make a difference. If you'd like to help, you can join an existing group or start a new one. MCC has basic guidelines for making quilts as relief goods. Maria Friesen connects groups and new makers in Europe.
Before getting started, ask her about the guidelines or read them here www.quiltsverbinden.nl.
