A Shout Out to Quilts of Valor!!
This summer, we have been fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with a great organization called Quilts of Valor. Begun in 2003, this group's goal is to provide all returning service men and women with a tangible reminder of America's love and gratitude- a handmade quilt! To date, QOV has placed over 44,000 quilts in the hands of those who need it most, the men and women who have sacrificed so much for us. Here at the store, we have formed several groups who have each committed to making a quilt per person, in order to represent Idaho's contribution. How can you get involved? Lots of ways! First, go to www.QOVF.org and just read the amazing stories of the lives that have been touched! You can also make a donation from the website that goes towards fabric, shipping, etc. Finally, call us (208)634-4933 if you'd like to make a quilt! We'll send you the basic information needed to make these truly coveted symbols of appreciation. Finally, let's do a giveaway! How do you plan on getting involved? Leave us a comment, and your name will go into a drawing for an "American Banner Rose" charm pack! Enter as many comments as you like- we'd love to hear from you! Oh, and here's my choice of fabrics... I will update with a finished pic by the end of the weekend! Happy stitching, Lisa and Katie
