Quilts for Nepal

BY KAREN MCAULAY
ON AUG 05, 2015

"This is not a slow intricate work of art. It's a quick way of making a warm cover for someone who has lost everything and needs the basics of existence."

Unsuspecting librarian by weekday, vigilante heroine seamstress by weekend, Scotswoman Karen McAulay takes the Inspire Nepal stage by sharing her story of a unique volunteer project that aims to provide disaster-struck Nepal with something we can all appreciate, the warmth of a hand-made quilt.

McAulay doesn't wait for her city's next PKN, rather putting her slides and audio together for a PechaKucha Night of one, in her own home in front of her computer. Listen to her presentation and be moved to share YOUR story of Nepal, inspiring the country back to it's vibrant self!
