JOIN US FOR THE 3rd Annual Veterans’ Day Quilting Marathon
The Southern Tier Quilts of Valor (STQOV) volunteers have worked all year to make pre-cut kits in five different patterns. This year you will also be able to select a pre-made binding and already-sewn backing to complement your quilt top. Then, after a good pressing and dangling thread cleanup, off to the longarmers they go!
Many volunteers worked throughout the year, some even doing ‘extra credit homework,’ to make ‘complete’ quilt kits possible. THANK YOU!!!!!
We made over 100 quilt tops during the last two marathons. What can we do this year???
So, oil up your machine and join us! Make a Quilt of Valor and bring a smile to the face of a service member or veteran.
Date: Saturday, November 8, 2014
Time: 9an – 9pm (you can sew all day, or during the 9am – 3pm or 3pm – 9pm session)
Place: Corning American Legion, 8 River Road, Corning, NY
Don’t sew? No worry! There are lots of other ways to help—assist the quilters, pressing, running errands, helping with food set-up and clean-up, and most of all, just being there.
Lots of free food, prizes, and fun. You do not want to miss this event!
