Merryman House 2018
gmaann Send a Message
Merryman House is a shelter for abused women and their children in Paducah, KY. The whole city of Paducah rolls out the red carpet for quilters during the AQS Quilt Week, and donating quilts to Merryman House seems a good way to thank them for their hospitality.

Several faithful forum members have already contacted me to see if we would be doing this again this year. Yes, we will!!

This is a project that was started in 2008 by QIAD Linda, at that time the Marketing Director for QIAD. It has been ongoing since that time and Merryman House is SO appreciative of our efforts.

I will be going to work for QIAD in Paducah again 'one more time' and will take quilts and other donations. Please message me for my address. You can also send items to my attention to the QIAD store in Paducah AFTER APRIL 1.

At first we did just QIAD pattern quilts, and had a Show & Tell for Eleanor before presenting them to a representative of Merryman House, but now we take any quilt appropriate for a woman or child.

Any quilt is welcome and so are pillowcases, coloring books and crayons. This is truly a Project from the Heart!

Thank you so much!
