Lyn Myers and Family Sew 50 Quilts for Hurricane Katrina Survivors

September 2005
ETD's Lyn Myers, her mom Linda Myers, and sister Christina Burrows made 50 quilts for the families displaced by Hurricane Katrina. Working in an assembly-line fashion, they produced baby-sized quilts as well as larger quilts for adults. The quilts were made entirely from fabrics donated from Lyn's and her mom's personal collection. The fabrics included an array of fun, character prints and bright, solid colors. "As we made the quilts, we kept thinking of the people that would receive them. I hope the quilts bring them a bit of comfort and perhaps a smile," said Lyn. Thank you, Lyn, Linda, and Christina, for helping those in need!
