We have been making quilts to give to our returning Military Personnel, Quilts of Valour, as our small way of thanking the men and women for their service. These quilts are greatly appreciated by the recipients who have told us they can “feel the love” when they wrap the quilt around them. Our Guild is the biggest supplier of Quilts to the Trenton Base. In the past few years we have sent over 150 quilts to them. Kits are prepared by volunteers and handed out to the members to complete. Several ladies with long arm quilting machines have helped to quilt them. We have received several letters back from the recipients expressing their gratitude.
50/50 Draw and Quilts of Valour
This year we held monthly 50/50 draws with the proceeds going towards the purchase of fabric to make quilts for our returning military personnel. This endeavor was warmly received by the members and we raised $794. With that money we were able to prepare 43 kits which were taken by our members to create the quilts.
Thank you so much for your overwhelming support. These quilts are greatly appreciated by the men and women who receive them. This project will continue next year.
