Dear Quilts of Valor Quilters

I wanted to remind you that May 9th through May 16th is the F+W sales event that will benefit Quilts of Valor Foundation.  For all purchases made from the following companies QOVF will receive 10% of the proceeds. 

Please share this information with friends and family.   

As Marianne Fons has already said, our QOVF volunteers donate time, labor, love, and fabric by making quilts. This sales event will give many thousands of additional quilters, sewers, knitters and crafters the opportunity to acknowledge the work of the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Shopping carts filled with books, patterns, videos, notions, fabrics, will deliver a great message of support for QOVF, so be sure to urge all your quilting, sewing, knitting, beading, and crafting friends to take part in the event, by shopping!

F+W Media, is a New York City-based content and e-commerce company, recently acquired the Fons & Porter and Keepsake brands. David Nussbaum, CEO of the company, who himself now wears a 2014 QOVF lapel pin, decided to celebrate F+W's acquisition by scheduling the online benefit event. Nussbaum said, "We recognize what QOVF does for America's veterans, and we want to help, too. In the past, we've benefited other non-profits such as the Susan B. Komen Foundation with such sales. Now we are eager to help Quilts of Valor Foundation."

In the run-up to the sales event, which ends the day before Armed Forces Day, F+W's branches will be promoting the benefit event heavily via its websites, blogs, and social media. Make your own shopping list and urge your friends to do the same.
