For many years, we have gathered to make Quilts of Valor® on the first Saturday of February. This year we have a special video to share. While you gather and sew together or sewing at home, we will share the Retrospective from our 20th Anniversary Conference in Paducah, KY. This video was filmed at the 20th Anniversary Conference and features segments detailing QOVF history. Presenters include Chaplain Kallerson, who awarded the first Quilts of Valor at Walter Reed Hospital with Catherine Roberts, Marianne Fons, and Past Executive Directors Susan Gordon, Ann Rehbein, and Lori Thompson sharing about their time at QOVF.  The video will be shared the morning of February 3rd by email to all of you. 

Our annual SEW Day prize drawing throughout the day is now open. Click here to sign-up today. It will remain open until 5pm EST February 3rd.Participating members can win quilting kits, notions, signed All-Star Quilts of Valor: 25 Patriotic Patterns from Star Designers Books and much more.
