Kindness Comes in All Kinds of Packages!




When the family arrived home from our Thanksgiving trip, Nick had a nice surprise waiting for him...three packages addressed to Artism! Nick and I were vendors at a fall craft show, and in the booth next to us was a really nice person, Laura, who was displaying beautiful quilted items. As we chatted throughout the day, she told us that she was a member of a quilting group that had lots of scraps that she could donate to Artism. I told her we'd love it and gave her our business card, not expecting her to make good on it! Well, make good she did, and we now have fabric scraps of every imaginable color and design. Here is the letter she enclosed:

Dear Lucy and Nick, I hope you find all these fabrics (and some yarn) useful. All the Guild ladies wish you well and good luck in your budding business. Please don't hesitate to ask for more. Happy Thanksgiving.


We are going to have so much fun using these scraps, and we can't thank Laura enough for her kindness. Like our friend Cheryl in Mississippi, Laura and her fellow quilters send blankets overseas to our troops. Guess who is getting someTo Honor Our Heroes cards to send along to soldiers along with our thanks for her time and generosity?

I'm so happy that you love the fabric scraps. The pictures of Nick opening the boxes is good for my heart. They brought tears to my eyes. God bless you and your beautiful family. Thanks for all the kind words.

Nick your work is wonderful.
Sincerely, Laura

Hi Nick,
I love your work. I like to make quilts. If you are on Facebook, I have started a group to help people exchange fabric scraps. You can join here. https://www.facebook.com/groups/fabricstashexchange/
