Quilts of Valour

This year we are continuing to support Quilts of Valour by creating large lap size quilts for our military personnel. Last year we provided them with over 100 quilts, some were quilted and most were just the tops.

We have created some kits that can be picked up at my house, in the garage, to avoid personal contact. We send the completed tops to a group in Mississauga who then supply the batting and do the long arm quilting. We put the name of the Guild and your name on a label which is then attached to the finished quilt. Several of our quilts have been featured on Facebook when they are presented to the recipients. Our quilt donations remain in the Toronto area.

We greatly appreciate any help you can give us in completing a quilt top. As mentioned kits can be picked up from my garage and dropped off upon completion. Please send me an email to let me know you are coming so I can put a selection of kits in the garage.

We delivered 33 quilts for the Barrie Tornado Victims today. Mayor Jeff met with us and was very appreciative and grateful for the work we did to help the storm victims.

A Thank You from the Mayor of Barrie

Jean, this is incredible!!  Thanks so much for this and especially to all the ladies for their hard work and compassion.

Of course I'd love to meet with you here.  My EA Nina (copied) can work with you to arrange a visit.  Perhaps I could offer you lunch as a partial thank you!

With colder weather coming in the months ahead, and people who lost so much re-occupying their homes, this will be timely indeed.

Mayor Jeff


October 2021 Update

Thank you to the ladies who picked up a kit at our meeting in the park on September 30...I ran  out of kits. The elves and I have been very busy preparing more kits and they include a variety of patterns and some with just a selection of squares so you can design your own pattern. Kits can  be picked up and dropped off in my garage.

This year when you drop off a quilt top please make  sure your name is on it so it can be put on the label and please help yourself to two fat quarters  from the basket as a thank you for your support. 

If you check the website for Quilts of Valour Canada you will see quilts that have been presented  to our military personnel and many of ours have been shown. 

Remember, you just have to sew the top together, no quilting is needed as the organization has several volunteers who do the longarm quilting.
