Finally, I'd like to share again that we have formed a Spring Water Designs Team (SWD Quilters for a Cure) to walk in the Columbia chapter of Walk MS to support the efforts to end multiple sclerosis! Walk MS helps us team up with friends, loved ones and co-workers to change the world for everyone affected by MS. We at SWD have loved ones who have been diagnosed with MS, and our specific team goals are to raise funds to go towards research and development of better treatments for MS, and ultimately a cure!
Many of you have contributed to our cause already, and for that we sincerely thank you :)
If you are interested in making a donation or joining our team, you can visit our Team Page Here.
We are also collecting donations in the shop between now and the Walk on April 14th.
