Quilts of Valor Sew In

On February 7th, in honor of the National Sew Day for Quilts of Valor, we will be hosting a Quilts of Valor sew in here at the store from 10am to 2pm. These beautiful quilts are made to "cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor." -http://www.qovf.org/

These quilts are lovingly made by volunteers across the nation to give to the men and women who have served to protect each of us. What a beautiful way to show thanks and gratitude!

Recently a few members of the Southwest New Mexico Quilters Guild presented some of the Grant County with completed Quilts of Valor.

Commander Bryant Jamison gave this response:

"The folks that create these quilts are a special kind of person. They pour their hearts and souls into every stitch creating a one of a kind quilt with exacting standards set forth from a national organization: http://www.qovf.org/"

"A Quilt of Valor can really get around, I found out during the presentation. A quilt top may be started here in Silver City, then be sent over to Texas for binding, then maybe Utah for the quilting stitches and at every stop a passionate volunteer opens their heart and gets busy pouring their love into every stitch and all this is done with a Veteran in mind. Wow, I cannot begin to explain the love and emotions that this creates."

Please join us on February 7th, from 10-2 for our QOV sew in! We would love to be able to deliver more of these Quilts of Valor to the amazing men and women in Grant County who have served us all.
