Quilts of Valor

Service Project Idea
This year on Veteran's Day, November 11th, lets organize a "sew-in "with three teams of 4 members each.

Red Team, Blue Team, White Team.

Each team will chose a pattern and gather fabric donations from their members and other quilt guild members. Popular choices are red, white and blue quilts, but can be generic/neutral also.

Each team will need 2 sewing machines and an ironing board. While one person is sewing the other person is pinning, pressing, etc. and then switch off.

Goal: three quilt tops finished in one day.

Feel free to recruit others (non members) to your team.

If unable to join us that day, consider inviting friends and holding your own sewing day to complete a quilt top.

For more information:

Quilt guild member Joan experienced passing out quilts to hospitalized servicemen and women first hand. Ask her about it.

Volunteer at the Sept. 13 meeting at the Christway Church in Osceola
