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
