GREAT FALLS - Jinny Beyer, owner of Jinny Beyer Studio in Great Falls, organized a “sew-in” Tuesday, Sept. 19, to make quilts for victims of Hurricane Harvey.

“When people have lost everything, a quilt can be comforting,” said Beyer. In the past she and other local volunteers have made quilts for Hurricane Katrina victims.

With all of the natural disasters recently, area citizens have taken it upon themselves to help out in whatever way they can, and Beyer’s quilting and fabric studio has found a perfect way to help out hurricane victims who have lost all they had in the recent flooding in Texas.

Beyer has owned the studio since 2000, where she provides lessons, and as a fabric designer makes fabrics with the help of an art studio and manufacturing in Japan.
