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.
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!
