On-Going Gifting

Francine's visits and distribution of SEWonderful Quilts
bring sew much happiness and comfort to children, the families, and their medical support teams.

Everywhere she gifts, the love and appreciation is SEWonderful

   To all the wonderful people at SEWonderful Quilts, our family thanks you for the quilt our son was given at recent Light the Night event.
   Francine called us out from the crowd after noticing my Son's survivor balloon and refused to let us go without finding a quilt for Will to take home.
   We love the quilt, but even more we love looking at it and being reminded of all the supporters out there fighting along with us. It's a beautiful thing you all do for families like ours and I want you to know that it keeps our spirits high.
   Thank you again.  We hope the quilt lasts forever -- long after even the memories we have of cancer having been a part of our lives.

Sincerely,  The Plyters

P.S. You can find more about Will's story at where kcb stands for Kick Cancer's Butt!
