February 2017

Can you believe we are now into February….the snow is here and you are trying to decide whether to go out and shovel or to stay inside and sew.   From the looks of Monday’s meeting photos many of our group have been choosing the stay in and sew option!   Well done.

But first, a few 2016 numbers for you to ponder………………….

Quilts awarded by our group:   50

Quilts shipped to a destination to be awarded:  48

Quilt tops sent to Les Page in Virginia Beach for long arming and subsequent presentation:  69

December 2016

We just had a marathon and yet the group continued to produce more amazing quilt tops!  The database indicates that even without the marathon our group made over 100 quilt tops!   Stop by the awards tab on the blog and see what the end result looks like…. the joy, gratitude and love in the eyes of the recipients, families, and presenters is why we are compelled to do what we do.

Marathon 2016 was a great success!

About 60 people were sewing away creating tops for Quilts of Valor!   We had kits available for those who wanted them,  there were door prices, raffle baskets, lunch, 2 award presentations, lots of laughs, sharing and a true sense of a community wanting to say thank you to service members for their hard work and sacrifice for our great nation.

Here are some pictures of the day….   If you go to the Awards tab you will see what’s been going on in November….it’s been a busy, busy month.
