It's official - The 2015 Quilters Hall of Fame inductee is Mimi Dietrich!

Here’s what Mimi has to say about her induction into the Quilters Hall of Fame:

I am thrilled and honored to be the next inductee into the Quilters Hall of Fame next July. The best part is that for almost 40 years I have been doing something that I love…quilting! I am truly proud of the books I have written with Martingale, and I have loved traveling around our wonderful country and meeting quilters in my classes. For most of my students it all starts with one little hand-appliqué stitch and grows into a fabulous quilt! If you’ve enjoyed my books or taken a class with me, come join me at the Quilters Hall of Fame in Marion, Indiana, next summer…it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime!

Many wedding gowns spend years after the wedding tucked away in a box or attic, never to be seen again as styles and tastes change.  Why not donate your dress or sewing skills to help make an
Angel Gown.  

The Fort Worth, TX NICU Helping Hands’ Angel Gown Program "began in 2013 because we recognized the overwhelming need to support families who lost a baby while in the hospital. Our Angel Gown Program provides comfort for families by providing a beautiful gown for final photos and for burial services. There is no greater gift that can be given to a grieving family than affirming the importance of the life of their child by offering this simple gift." 

To find out more about this organization or how you can offer your skills or donate, click here.
