Do you like to sew? Do you like to quilt? Participate in making quilts of valor to honor deserving veterans who have been touched by war. Come join the local Tri City QOV organization! Join our fun and friendly group for the Sandy's QOV sit and sew tribute and give back to the folks who protected us.
Bring your machine, basic sewing supplies and sit and sew with the group. Do as much or as little as you like. All participation and donations are welcomed.
Directions on how to cut and sew a sample block will be provided. You can participate in as much of the process as you'd like. You can do one block, 12 blocks, put together the already made blocks with sashing, or binding or just cut fabric. You can donate fabric, purchase fabric to donate or provide a monetary contribution.
Do you have a long arm? You can put your name on the list to put the finishing touches on the quilts.
Fabric used or donated must meet the criteria outlined at http://www.qovf.org
Sandy's Fabrics and Machines will be offering military themed fabric at a discount for sit and sew QOV participants.
Gail and Joe Tarcza will be demonstrating cutting their fabric and assembly techniques for the QOV blocks.
