Pictures from First Delivery to Forgotten Navajo People

Recently we delivered over 100 quilts to Navajos living in the Bennett Freeze area of Arizona. This is an area that was legally forbidden to do any development for many years, and as a result, the people living in this area often live in homes that have no running water or electricity. The weather gets very cold in that area this time of year, often into the 20’s at night. Our quilts were delivered to children and their grandmothers who are their caregivers. I know the warmth of the quilts will be appreciated by all of them.

Here are the pictures:

Thanks to Marsha Monestersky and Lucy Knorr of the Forgotten People, and my friend Kathleen Satterfield for making this delivery happen, and thanks to the many wonderful quilters who created these lovely quilts!

Regards,

Carla

    Marsha has invited me to join them for a work day the end of this month – they have 30 students coming out to install sheet rock and insulation in some of the homes. I’ll send photos to you after. (It’s been snowing here for two days, so I know those quilts are greatly appreciated right now).
