First scissors…then rotary…finally…AccuQuilt™
Fremont, Neb. (PRWEB) October 2, 2009
AccuQuilt, manufacturer and worldwide distributor of fabric cutting solutions in the quilting and fabric craft markets, participated as a sponsor in the American Heart Association's GO Red for Women Expo in Omaha, Neb. on September 10th. Dollars raised during the campaign will be used to provide life-saving research and educate women about heart disease.
Lynette Nabity, a member of the American Heart Association's Omaha executive committee and co-owner of AccuQuilt's parent company, TEK Industries, said her personal experience with heart disease made the event particularly important to her. "I was thrilled that our own AccuQuilt, a company that supports the life-affirming creative endeavors of women, could provide monetary and moral support for this important women's cause that has so closely touched our lives," she said. Lynette's daughter, Cara, died at the age of 19 from congenital heart disease.
The company's director, Andrea Ronning, said contributions to the event demonstrate AccuQuilt's ongoing commitment to women. "Quilting is at the heart of women's lives, and it's fitting for us to show our support for women and their hearts through GO Red for Women," she said. AccuQuilt donated hundreds of dollars in product and cash to the event.
