Quilts we delivered to the Palo Alto VA Hospital in 2013 -- see a photo gallery of our visit here.

Hi everybody!  We're here to organize a community gift of quilts and other comfort items to the Detroit VA Hospital to be delivered July 16, 2014 at noon -- one day before NN14 kicks off.  This year, we are focusing on the facility's nursing home which has 65 beds.  So the goal is 65 quilts, a mix of wheelchair size and lap throws.

Now there are Pootie Pads for Pooches, too!  These pads have soothing organic lavender and thyme quilted in and ore made of cotton fabric, Dream Puff, polyester batting. These are perfect for lining a bed or crate or for protecting the sofa from your four-legged friends fur.  If your dog is suffering from anxiety or stress, the aroma of these herbs may help calm him or her.

Lavender Quilts

How about a lap throw quilt filled with organic lavender flowers, sprinkled in the batting (think of it as a Pootie Pad for People)?  For those who find the scent of lavender soothing and healing, these are heavenly.  Cost is  $175 plus shipping.
