AmFab Arts & Bridgeport Rescue Mission

Hello, Denyse here, from Denyse Schmidt Quilts. Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to support the Bridgeport Rescue Mission, Inc. (Bridgeport Rescue Mission). The BRM's mission is to fight poverty from the inside out by embracing the urban poor and addicted, offering hope and healing for a changed life.

For every $5 donation you make on this page through 5pm Sunday, November 10, you'll be eligible to win this quilt as part of the annual American Fabrics Building Art Raffle! Donate $10, get two chances, etc. We'll be drawing names the week of November 12, and will contact you via email. The quilt is all cotton, made by me with donated blocks, and is a twin size.

You can also get tickets onsite at our Open Studios event on November 9/10 at the American Fabric Arts Building, 1069 Connecticut Avenue, Bridgeport CT, 06607. Hours are 10am - 4pm. For more information about Open Studios visit, or

Thank you in advance for you help, and good luck!
