And perhaps even more impressive than their beautiful quilts is the commitment Weeks and Bill have to serving their community. They could easily make more money than they do, but instead donate quilts to charity organizations and fundraising efforts. For every 10 quilts they sell, they donate one to charity.
And few quilters can say they've created jobs in their community, but that's exactly what Weeks and Bill did when they designed the "Many Hands Blankies" (pictured below). These quilts are made by developmentally disabled adults at a vocational training and job center in Chicago. The sale of the quilts keep adult workers creatively employed.

belong to. It's fun. Check it out.
Please type “quilt contest” in the subject line of your e-mail and include your mailing address so we can get the book to you if you win.
You can enter to win a couple different ways.
1) E-mail a photo of a finished quilt, quilt block or work in progress to Jennifer@craftsanity.com. (The idea is to create an inspiring photo gallery or quilts and fabrics. I’ll post your entries on CraftSanity.)
2) Or, if you have never quilted before but want to learn, send me a sentence or two about why you’d like to learn.
The deadline for submissions is Tuesday Nov. 14. Abby, CraftSanity’s Vice President of fun, will randomly select three winners.
Calling all AntiCrafters! The AntiCraft staff scored a book deal and is collecting project submissions. Click here to check out this goth style craft web magazine and here for submission details. (Congrats Renee and Zabet!)
