Quilts of Valor 2015

The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor. Guild members have been working all year to make these special quilts. In that time, 38 quilts have been made to honor and thank these men and women for their service to our country.

On Saturday, October 3rd, 2015, at 1:00pm, many of these quilts wereawarded to service members and veterans at Quilts from the Village XIV. There was  a private reception sponsored by the North Shore chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) for the recipients and their families following the ceremony.
