As most of you know, we are working on the quilt called "Anata to Watashi no Quilt" for Yoko who is a girl living in Ishinomaki where the earthquake and Tsunami struck on Mar.11.
At the exhibition, we asked visitors to make a block, if they liked.
It may come as a shock to you....Yoko came to our exhibition on the last day!
We were all surprised to hear from Yoko that she was going to come a couple of days before...also to know that there was already a way getting to Tokyo from Ishinomaki!
First she drove to Sendai which was a capital city of Miyagi prefecture. According to her, many roads were collapsed.. Then she took a bus from Sendai to Tokyo.
She told us that she was so happy getting blocks from us ( and you too!) and reconsidered that how wonderful having fabrics, needles and time for the quilt was.
Now her area is getting better, but there is always a long line to do anything...like withdrawing money, buying foods and things for daily use.
There was a box for making a donation and its total amount was 93750 yen, which all goes to Yoko.
She will help people with quilting using the money.
