Wear Red for Women’s Heart Health – Feb. 3
Since 2004, the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement has been educating millions of women on the urgent truths of heart disease. The fact is: More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. Unfortunately, this killer isn’t as easy to see and is often silent, hidden and misunderstood. Go Red For Women works to spread life-saving truths about heart disease and fund lifesaving research – all which can make the difference between life and death. Learn more at GoRedForWomen.org
Red Fabric Swatches of the Week: Robert Kaufman’s Forget Me Not
Robert Kaufman’s Forget Me Not collection is just right for a quilt to celebrate women’s heart health. The red dress was introduced as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002. Wear a Red Dress day is celebrated traditionally on the first Friday in February each year. Don’t you think the fabric with the red dress-forms perfectly exemplifies Wear a Red Dress day?
