Question: How do I get my t-shirts to you?
Answer: You can mail them to me via UPS or regular
                mail to 422 Militia Dr. Lansdale, PA 19446

               appointment with you to deliver the t-shirts to

Question: Do I need to wash the t-shirts?
Answer: Yes, all shirts should be washed.  If you
                have purchased any brand new t-shirts

                and dried at least once to pre-shrink the
                shirts.

                 100% cotton or super soft flannel.

Answer: Yes! You choose the colors used in the
                 sashing for the traditional quilt and the

               school or  college colors.
