Kristy Beckstead, YWCA advocate for Idaho and Lewis counties, is seen here with a quilt made by inmates at North Idaho Correctional Institution in Cottonwood. Inmates, under the direction of Emmett Wilson, donated a variety of handmade quilts and Christmas stockings to Beckstead to give to victims of domestic violence and abuse. Donations of materials – including fabric, thread, batting and even sewing machines – are sought for the inmates to continue creating quilts and other items to give away to those in need. Call Wilson at 962-7725.
