National Quilting Day is March 21

The theme for National Quilting Day this year is “Welcome Home”. The NQA writes: “As our country looks forward to 2009 with a new president and new hope for our country, we at The National Quilting Association thought it would be appropriate this year, to devote National Quilting Day, to the home. The housing market is in decline and foreclosures are on the rise, with greater numbers of homeless families to follow. We would like to encourage our members, guilds, and sponsors to join together and give their effort and energy to those who may be struggling for warmth and comfort.”

What are you doing for National Quilting Day? What a lovely day for a random act of kindness...whether it involves quilting or not! I'm going to try to find a way to brighten someone's day this weekend. The world needs more kindness... so why not?
