As many of you know, quilt teacher, artist, and judge Libby Lehman suffered a stroke in late April and has been hospitalized since then. As the monetary expenses for her treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation are expected to be monumental, her family has set up The Libby Lehman Medical Fund to help cover costs.

Karey Bresenhan, President and CEO of Quilts, Inc. (which produces the International Quilt Market and International Quilt Festival shows, both of which Libby has been an integral part of for many years) has announced that the company will match up to $5,000 of donations collected for the Fund.

To contribute, please send a check, money order, or cashier’s check made out to “Libby Lehman Medical Fund” and mail it to her sister, Cathy Arnold, at 2220 Stanmore, Houston, TX 77019. If you’d prefer an online secure transfer method, please contact Bill Arnold at for more information.
