There's Still Time to Register for National Quilts of Valor Sew Day!

The Mission of the Quilts of Valor® Foundation:  "To cover Service Members and Veterans touched by war, with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor®".

As your East Central Illinois Quilts of Valor® State Coordinator, I want to remind you - there's still plenty of time to plan your own Quilts of Valor Sew Day on Saturday, February 7, 2015, and join in on all the FUN your fellow quilters and sewers will be experiencing across the United States, and possibly even beyond, by helping to create beautiful Quilts of Valor®!

Thank YOU, Cynthia G.!
Most of you are aware, but for those who may be new to Quilts of Valor®, we have been dedicated to honoring our Service Members and Veterans for their sacrifice and service for our country by creating and awarding comforting and healing Quilts of Valor®.

With the selfless dedication and sacrifice of thousands of amazing Volunteers throughout our country, over 112,000+ Quilts of Valor® have been awarded to date.  While this is an astounding achievement in such a short time, there is still much to do, since there are currently over 4 Million deserving Service Members and Veterans in the US alone who are eligible to receive a Quilt of Valor®.
