While many people are working on making the quilts, they are asking for help with shipping costs. “In order to get these very heavy quilts to Paducah, we need help from local donations. If you are willing to donate, please give us a call here at The Quilt Works. We’ll be so grateful for that,” said quilter Heidi Buxman.

Quilt Works can be contacted via phone at 505-298-8210 or on their website.
