1.49 for 6 sew on coin size fasteners.
2.49 for a set of 4 self stick coin fasteners.
I can get 25 yards of self stick tape for a hundred bucks, which counting on using one inch tabs on corners gives us 225 blocks.
We could potentially, if people were interested and willing to donate to the project, put easy kits together to hand or mail out.
I see there is not much interest in this, but to be honest, we can sit here and wax philisophical for decades more, or we can start finding some ways to stand up and make ourselves be heard to other besides the chorus. Do we want to bitch, or change things?
Blackmanxxx is always trying to get us going, and he is right. We have an opportunity to meet in DC this summer and make ourselves visable. We need to start thinking of how to do that. Dave and I will be there, Glenn Sacks, Warren Ferrall, Cristina Hoff Sommers are scheduled....how many of you will be there?
I understand if people aren't exited about quilts, so give me another idea. I like the idea of possessions of the kids lost, but I am not sure of the legalities or practicalities of what would be done afterward about them. There is the clothesline of kid's shirts idea, or the paper doll idea. I know they are all girly, give me some guy ideas! Come on, with as smart a group as we have here, I cannot believe no one is interested in brainstorming about actually making a difference!
Don't make me get out the cattle prod!
