Come and Sew for our Vets!

Come and Sew for Our Vets!
Quilts of Valor Monthly Meeting

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

You are invited to help us create Quilts of Valor®  for our deserving Service Members and Veterans in our East Central Illinois area.  In 2014, we created and awarded over thirty (30) Quilts of Valor® to area Service Members and Veterans.  We were able to accomplish this through the generosity of local area talent, coupled with wonderful monetary and non-monetary gifts from area donors.

We have lofty goals for 2015 - to now create and cover one hundred (100) area Service Members and Veterans with Quilts of Valor.  To do this, we need your help.

EVERYONE is Welcome to participate, including home-schooled and 4-H youth, ages 8 years and up interested in learning how to create Quilts of Valor.
