Quilts of Valor:
As most of you know, we have displayed Quilts of Valor in each of our Quilt Shows. As we are preparing for
next year’s show I have also been asked to be the Quilts of Valor Point of Contact for Operation Seas the Day
in Bethany Beach. This will require approximately 25 quilts, and with our very active area quilters, I think we
can support this without a problem. I have fabric available for your use and can also help you locate a pattern. Contact: Marguerite
