Another house.. 06/18/2011
Last post was a year ago where the fabrics had just been unpacked. However, due to a change in circumstances, the fabrics got packed up and moved to another house several sois (streets) over and into a much smaller space. On a positive note, things are moving forward nicely for the project. I head to the US in July and will get to attend two days of the Project LInus biennial conference. I'm going to be a vendor my first day there to generate interest for my funding scheme and the second day I'll have the opportunity to meet the various state chapter coordinators and learn how they organize.
Just uploaded the photos for the latest donation from the Bangkok Quilt Group with assistance from Lin McNulty's donations from her Bangkok Mom Quilts blog post. Seventy quilts were donated to two locations at Thai construction labor camps in Bangkok that are supported by the Melissa Cosgrove Children's Foundation. Jill, Nancy, Iris & I met up with Tracy of the foundation to deliver the quilts. The labor camps are "temporary" structures where the Thai families live while working on nearby condominium & hotel construction sites. The families live together in a single room. The buildings were two stories, very organized with a camp boss in charge at each site. The first site we went to had an air-conditioned daycare center. The second site is building a toy library.
