Sofa.com's Comfy Award

Sofa.com is a trendy sofa company in London, dedicated to building high quality, custom made sofas for a fraction of the usual custom price. One of their passions is comfort, and their blog is devoted to all things comfortable. I would love to be able to visit them and all the funky shops the blog mentions! Sofa.com’s latest mission is to recognize companies that understand the significance of comfort and coziness in one’s life.

Quilted Lovelies was recently honored with a Comfy Award, and a very lovely post on Sofa.com’s blog. Check out the badge! Pretty slick, huh? I love their avant-garde pictures too – not what you’d expect in merchandise photography. Take a look at their site; you’ll wish they delivered to the U.S.

Enjoy and stay comfy! :)

This great organization is composed of volunteers who desire to support our Armed Forces. They send quilts to transport wounded soldiers from the battlefield to safety, plus helmet liners and Christmas stockings. There are several more volunteer groups that involve writing cards and letters, adopting a soldier, helping out the K-9 unit and more.

If you are interested in volunteering, please click on any of the links above. If you have any red, white, blue or patriotic themed fabric that you don’t want anymore, I would be most appreciative to receive it. I recently started making quilts for them, but one of their stipulations is that all the quilts have to be made of 100% cotton, red, white, blue or patriotic themed fabric. After only 2 quilts, I am quickly running out! If you’d like to donate your unwanted fabric, please send it to Quilted Lovelies, P.O. Box 126316, Benbrook TX 76126. If you’d like to volunteer your time or make a donation to CitizenSAM, please click on CitizenSAM to go to their home page.

Thank you so much for your help!
