Fundraising for the Japan tsunami victims - in Japan

Reiko Domon, leader of Peaceful Heart Quilt Group in Yuza-machi, Yamagata Prefecture, and one of the founders of the Yuza Sashiko Guild sent me this message -


I held East Japan great earthquake disaster charity experience lesson


A lot of Yuza Sashiko fans participated


And I made kinchyaku (drawstring bags)


The amounts of money approximately 60,000 yen gathered

So rather than making quilts, they have been making bags to sell for fundraising. She also told me that, at the moment, there are problems with sending things out from Tohoku, even though of course Yuza-machi is a long way from the nuclear exclusion zone around Fukushima Dai Ichi.
