Jane Hoffman is another wonderful customer who has used KTQ to cultivate her love of animals into quilts. She collected all of her favorite t-shirts and had KTQ make several quilts for her over the years. A little background on Jane Hoffman……she is the President of the Alliance for NYC’s Animals, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity that offers important services and resources to the 150 animal rescue groups and shelters that are members of the Alliance. Their initiatives include the Wheels of Hope transport program, the NYC Feral Cat Initiative, Helping Pets and People in Crisis program, and Mega Pet Adoption Events. http://www.animalalliancenyc.org
At the many animal welfare conferences, fundraisers, and other animal related events Jane attended over the years, she received a steady stream of tee shirts branded to many of our Alliance Participating Organizations (APOs) and other rescue and animal organizations. Rather than letting these imaginative and oftentimes striking tee shirts languish unworn in the closet, she decided to have them transformed into beautiful (and practical) quilts by the Deaf Initiative’s Keepsake Theme Quilts (KTQ) project.
As a lawyer and avid soccer fan, Jane also has commissioned quilts featuring sports and law related tee shirts. Jane stated that, “Over the years, KTQ has created more than a dozen beautiful quilts for me. They come in very handy on cold winter nights, and also make wonderful gifts.” KTQ is proud to be a part of preserving her memories for years to come for Jane!
