Special Presentation May 20th!

All members of the CT Quilters QOV Group are invited
to attend a very special presentation.   

Aston Gardens is a senior living community located on Linebaugh Avenue, just around the corner from the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop, close to where it intersects with Race Track Rd. (see map below).

Our Group has been invited to present a brief program to the Veterans Group at Aston Gardens that will include the following speakers and topics:
  • Pat Neville:  History of how the CT Quilters QOV Group was established and the quilts awarded to date
  • Barb Linares:  Why she wanted her shop to be registered as an “Under Our Wings QOV Shop” and on being a woman Veteran
  • Debbie Wallace:  The new quilt pattern and group direction for 2014
  • Linda Fentriss:  Background on the National Quilts of Valor Foundation and her role as a Regional Representative for the State of Florida

Following the program, we expect to award up to 20 Quilts of Valor to the members of the Veterans Group.  The majority of these men and women are Veterans of WWII with a few being Veterans of the Korean Conflict.  Pat N. has met with the current leader of the group (who was in charge of the Port of Tampa Coast Guard when the Sunshine Skyway Bridge was struck) and she found them to be a very interesting group!

Date:               Tuesday, May 20th

Time:               Meet at 8:45 in the Ballroom of the Main Bldg at Aston Gardens
                        Meet at 8:30 at Crafty Threads to carpool to Aston Gardens
