I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

Yay!! Donation Day Today

Today was donation day. Twice a year I buy fabric and also clean out my workshop and donate supplies to local groups. This bunch is going to an assistance center that makes quilts for kids in need. It is so fun to drop it off. They also have a little quilt shop so where they sell fabric and ribbon by the yard to make money for machines and supplies. It took a while, but last year they were able to buy a big quilting machine, which is really nice because anyone can bring their quilts there to have the top stitching done. They charge for it and then use the money for more quilting supplies for the quilts they donate. Please email me or leave a comment if you know of any charity groups that need fabric. I try to donate several hundred yards of fabric a year. My sister, who runs the wholesale side of my business, also has a bunch of fabric she needs to donate.

I wish I knew of some places that were in need of fabric. What a great thing you do for that center. Have a great weekend.

We are in need of fabric that is or can be cut to 11" x 14". I work for a non profit and run a book publishing center at an inner city elementary school in pontiac, mi. We help kids write/edit stories and bind them into books. The fabric is what becomes the covers. Would love to have any donations. How kind and generous of your business.

How awesome. I have given multiple yards of fabric to Habitat, Goodwill, etc. because I always buy more than I need. I would love to find an organization like this! Have a great day! xoxo

That is so nice of you to do for the center. I also wanted to let you know that I got the necklace and I absolutely love it. I have posted a review on my blog :)

I just came across your blog, but I'm curious about this center you mentioned that makes quilts for children in need. I'm just getting into quilting, but I'd love to hear about an org that I could get involved with that might do something like this!
