Alissa Haight Carlton, one of the founding members of the Modern Quilt Guild, posted on her site about a wonderful nonprofit that helps women who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo by teaching them to sew at a sewing workshop. Action Kivu is run by Alissa’s twin sister, Cate. Alissa is currently running a fundraiser on her site. The fundraiser runs through the end of the week. Click here to check it out. If you donate not only will you be helping out a great cause, a great cause that involves sewing, you can be entered in multiple giveaways as well.
