Quilt of Valor Sew-In

Have you started making your Quilt of Valor? If not, do you need a little encouragement and support to get started? Or better yet... to get it finished? Join other like-minded sewers at the Quilts of Valor “sew-in” on Wednesday, February 22 at Faith Lutheran Church, 680 W. Deerpath Road in Lake Forest (the usual location for workshops).

So bring fabric, your sewing machine, and supplies to work on your quilt… to have it ready for the show in October.  It will be fun to see everyone’s quilts!  If you have any questions about the "sew-in", contact Deb or Cheryl...  and we hope to see you on Wednesday, February 22nd.

IMPORTANT: Please RSVP to Deb Sherrock by Tuesday, February 14 if you plan to come to the QOV “sew-in” on February 22. If we need more space at the church due to an overwhelming response, we need to let them know a week in advance.

There is no fee for this workshop.
