It wasn’t hard to raise money for the Ricketson-Shugg Education Fund. Those who knew Kathreen, either through her blog Whipup or through her books were happy to give. Even those who didn’t know her or her work, we found, were happy to give to her children as soon as they heard of the children’s devastating loss. We began collecting money for the fund in mid-November at a studio sale. We’re pleased to share that with donations from our customers added to Modern Quilt Studio’s donation, today we’ll be transferring $800 to the fund for Orlando and Otilija’s care and education. Thanks to those of you who made generous donations to honor this inspiring family.
