Good evening, everyone! As involved members of our community, you will understand the importance of the Community Quilt Project, conducted by Sara R and her sister, winglion.

I have followed this project rather on the periphery for some time, occasionally contributing a message and some funding for this astonishingly generous and compassionate project. Never did I hope or expect to become a community quilt recipient, myself, but fate intervened.

As I'm sure you all know, I am the proud possessor of a Daily Kos quilt that the community funded to keep me warm in body and spirit after the death of my husband and partner for pretty much the entirety of my whole adult life on December 5.

Leaves received the quilt!!! This is one of the most incredible things I've ever been given. Every one of these sayings is extraordinary. It's just incredible. On so many levels its just beautiful - emotionally, visually, in the beautiful way it's made, in the words themselves which are so full of poetry, healing and holiness.  There is a real sense of the sacred about it. In the love behind it, in the community. It's one of the most amazing things I've ever been given.  Such a gift!

We Have Something to Say to YOU, Sara R and winglion!

A scary diagnosis, a serious injury, a death in the family, caretaking a parent with Alzheimer's, living with cancer....all of it can feel lonely and isolating. In this online world of Daily Kos, though, we have genuine Healers named Sara R and winglion who fill that breach with something extraordinary:  A Community Quilt.

A week from now, Sara R will pass a milestone: five years at Daily Kos. In that time, she’s proved to be a powerful community builder in a way that is almost shaman-like. Her quilts–both the signature-quilt fund-raisers she has stitched together for Netroots Nation and the spectacular “love catchers” she’s made for 30 (now 39) members of the DK family in need of healing–are tangible expressions of community connection that transcend our workaday political world.
