Earthquake and Tsunami  in Japan
there are several people organizing to collect quilts or money to help Japanese people:

Naomi Ichikawa, editor of Patchwork Quilt Tsushin Magazin:

I am OK. But my family is in Sendai. It is a very bad situation now in Japan. We are still nervous about shaking and radiation, but no way to escape. We would like to collect comfort quilts (baby to adult, new or unused) for the people who are suffering.

Naomi visited Europe several times and two fellow Swiss quilters have had the pleasure to meet her. Both of them have traveled in Japan and are organizing another trip just now.At the moment it's too early to ponder whether or not they will be able to go. 

They decided to collect the quilts in Switzerland and organize shipping.

If you live in Switzerland and would like to donate a quilt, please ship it to:
Marianne Häni
Kapellenweg 11
5503 Schafisheim
Tel. 062 892 12 20
If you can enclose some money it is very much appreciated as shipping to Japan can easily cost thousands of Swiss Francs. Marianne and Verena are trying very hard to get some sponsors on board to help finance this.
