The CT Quilters Quilts of Valor Group was created when Barb Linares, owner of Crafty Threads Quilt Shop in Tampa, agreed to be an “Under the Wings” Quilt Shop as part of the Quilts of Valor National Foundation - dedicated to recognizing our Veterans thru a presentation of a Patriotic Quilt for their service to our Country.
The majority of our first awards were to the James A Haley Veterans Hospital. This was accomplished by working with Ronika Anderson, a Volunteer Services Coordinator at the hospital.

of the Volunteer Services Division of the Tampa VA
in June 2012. With her in the photo is retired Marine
Corp volunteer, Commandant Willie Little, Jr.
We received this thank you from Ronika for our efforts and we hope that those in her area will be enticed to make QOVs for their area.
