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®".
NEW Fall Schedule!
Beginning in September, East Central IL QOV will meet the second Thursday of each month from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm (CST) at our Marshall McDonald’s in Marshall, IL. First meeting date is Thursday, September 10, 2015 @ 1:30 pm (CST).
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.
