Virginia Beach resident Kathy Thompson decided to raise awareness and research
funds to help find a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known
as Lou Gehrig’s disease, she knew quilters would embrace the challenge.As the co-founder and owner of Quilter’s
Dream BattingÒ, a Virginia Beach based business that manufactures high quality quilt
batting; Kathy knows how generous and caring the quilt community is.What she didn’t know was how much they would
touch her life and the lives of thousands of individuals living with ALS,
including her own son.
I will never understand why people keep looking for
alternative natural fibers for quilting - you can’t get much more
environmentally friendly than cotton.Cotton is a renewable resource that has stood the test of time – cotton fabrics
have been found in ancient tombs that are thousands of years old.Not only is cotton an eco-friendly fiber, but
the cotton used in Dream Cotton is grown and processed in the U.S.A.!
