There are many ways that you can support our service members and contribute towards making one or more Quilts of Valor ®:
ü Volunteer at one of the monthly meetings – no sewing skills required! You can choose to iron, cut fabrics, assemble pieces for the quilters, plus many more fun tasks … but of course, you can always sew, too!
ü Pick up a pre-assembled packet to sew at your convenience at home – simply sign out one or more of the kits at the Crafty Threads Quilt Shop and return it when completed
ü Make a pillowcase for a presentation package. Use only good quality, 100% cotton red, white and blue fabrics, please. No childish prints. Contrasting bands for the top are great. See a really good tutorial at this site:
ü Volunteer to longarm quilt. If you are a longarm quilter, we have tops, batting and backing waiting to be quilted. Your skills are always welcome.
ü Groups may make their own quilts to be donated (please follow all of the Quilts of Valor Foundation guidelines). We will donate quilts on your behalf to the James A. Haley VA Hospital in
, FL. Tampa
