Recently I received an email alerting me of the RSD/CRPS Awareness quilt project. The RSD/CRPS community wants to increase public awareness of this disease. From the group’s Facebook page:
Contribute a 12" x 12" patch to be added to the RSD/CRPS Awareness quilt make sure you keep what you want to show 1" away from the borders.
This is for pain awareness help spread the word and make a square.
Mail all quilt panels (squares) to:
RSD/CRPS Awareness Quilt P.O. Box 500915 Malabar, Fl. 32950-500915
Check out our links for information that can help you put your square together...everything from sewing tips to iron on transfers using your printer.

The RSD/CRPS Awareness Quilt is an ongoing project and will be until there is a cure, If you have RSD or someone you love has it, please take the time to participate and send in your square for the quilt. Its growing fast and is already attracting some media attention. This project will do more than anything yet to finally get the problem of RSD/CRPS the attention it desperately needs
