Volunteer for the LongArmy
The Quilts of Valor Foundation LongArmyTM is a team of volunteers who donate their talents to QOV groups and individual members without access to longarming services. We welcome any longarmer or machine quilter who wants to be a part of the LongArmy and support the QOVF Mission.
Expectation of a LongArmy Member
To be a part of the LongArmy, you need to be a QOVF Member. If you aren’t a member, you can join one of three ways: become an individual member, join as a member of an existing QOVF Group or become a member of the QOV LongArmy.
Additional key expectations include:
- Indicate how many quilts you commit to do for a 30-day period.
- Provide batting: quality cotton blend, low-loft polyester or 80/20 poly blend.
- Communicate with the topper for style, design, issues and arrangement for return of quilt within 30-days.
For a more detailed list of LongArmy requirements and expectations, and other valuable information, please reference our Policies and Procedures.

Note: In order to protect our volunteers, Service Members and Veterans who may be in a high-risk category, we ask you to follow all safety and health protocols based upon your State or community’s guidance. This includes frequent hand washing while packaging a quilt top for the LongArmy, while quilting the top and when packaging the Quilt for return.
