Kravet

From the moment Ellen Kravet heard about the formation of Quilts for Kids from founder, Linda Arye, she was on board…literally, as QFK’s first board member.  Just as the Kravet family’s commitment to innovation has helped the company transform from a small family-run fabric house in 1918, to a global leader in today’s home furnishings industry, their commitment to making a difference in the lives of children has benefited Quilts for Kids enormously.

Sina Pearson

Sina Pearson is an award-winning designer, manufacturer and entrepreneur who has, for nearly three decades, set industry standards for sophistication and technical innovation. 

 

We went to Sina’s website for the story of her partnership with Quilts for Kids:

 

“While we normally do all our own fabric designs, one day we were shown a group of drawings done by 7-year-olds, who had been asked to draw pictures of things they would want for a fellow classmate who might be hospitalized.

 

“Inspired not only by the children, but by the good works of Linda Arye, the remarkable founder of Quilts for Kids, we decided to produce Good Wishes,  and donate 10% of the sales to Quilts for Kids.
