Quilts for Kids
In 2000, when Linda Arye created what would become a national nonprofit quilting organization, she didn’t know how to sew. An interior designer, Arye, of Yardley, started with one simple mission: “I just wanted to save a little fabric from the landfill.”
Throughout the years, Arye and her volunteers have saved many millions of pounds of discontinued fabrics and sample swatches from landfills. Her noble mission, which began by loading her car with unwanted fabrics and storing them at her home – eventually filling every room – has put hundreds of thousands of patchwork quilts in the hands of hospitalized children, as well as children of abuse and poverty, globally.
