QUILTS OF VALOR FOUNDATION

Meeting begins at 10am

Presentation begins at 11am

 

 

The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans with healing and comforting Quilts of Valor.  Over 180,000 quilts have been awarded to our brave veterans who have risked their lives in service to our country.  The QOVF program gives us quilters an opportunity to say, “thank you,” with gratitude and love stitched into quilts.  It’s what we can do.  Suzanne Wade, from the QOVF will be talking to us about the Foundation and its programs.  More information can be found at the QOVF website:  www.qovf.org

Over 200 quilts to Olive Crest!

 

Stitches for Kids Friendship Group, Deep Canyon Friendship Group, Rancho Casa Blanca Quilt Club (Indio) and the Coachella Valley Quilt Guild worked together to donate over 200 quilts to the children and families at Olive Crest.  These quilts were presented during a spring event and put smiles on the faces of children and families whole receive support through Olive Crest.  Pictured above are guild members Patricia Page and Natalie Shonerd who delivered the quilts to Olive Crest.  Thank you to all those who helped in this endeavor.


SUMMER QUILT RETREAT

 

Ten of our guild members attended the summer retreat at Vina de Lestonnac Retreat Center in Temecula.  In addition to their own varied projects and playing games, each participant did one or more blocks for a charity quilt.  (We also talked one of the quilters from the Orange County group in the classroom across the way into doing a block from the accucut squares and triangle that had been prepared for the quilt!)
