These are our community sewers who love to come together for the More
Than Warmth project. We make a day of it. We love to hear the
quilts make and a photo of who a recipient is, is a joy to see.
Local students craft quilts
Students from Altimira Middle School made a
dozen quilts as part of the More Than Warmth project, an educational
students of all ages to
learn about world cultures. MTW has worked with over 12,000 students
since the start of the project, sending quilts all over the world.
Mrs. Coldiron's art class made quilt squares, which were then put
together by a Sonoma County MTW sewing group. Anna Bimenyimana of the
Thrift Store in Sonoma will send some of the quilts to her country of
Rwanda, for children with HIV. Other quilts will be going to needy
El Salvador with teaching assistant Maribel Tinker, who also helped
with the sewing. Last year at Altimira, Mrs. Prince's class made quilts
to Colombia and Rwanda. For more information call 707.765.0196 or
e-mail Linda@peaceroots.org. Their website is

I delivered some of your quilts to Northern Zambia. Sorry the
photos aren't the greatest. The sun was very strong, and there
building to go into to take the photos. It's a very poor area.
Mwana sends his love.
Mwana emailed me in 2002 and asked if he could help with this project.
Soon, children in North and East Nashville asked me if they could make quilts for Africa.
Mwana delivered them
to wonderful women who have taken in children when the parents have
to die of HIV. He
and Nelda have since delivered many, many, many boxes of quilts to
Zambia and Swaziland. They also send us lovely photos. Thank you both
