Quilts of Valor Nominations

The Village Quilters is once again very proud to honor our American Veterans with a Quilt of Valor award ceremony at their bi-annual quilt show on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Any current or retired member of the United States Armed Forces who has served "in harms way" is eligible to receive this one time only honor of a Quilt of Valor.

To nominate a Veteran you know, submit a Nomination form to either Cheryl Mercy or Linda Spring prior to August 1, 2019 to be considered. We must limit the number of Veterans to no more that 15 to receive a quilt at the show. Please note that Nomination forms will also be available at all upcoming VQ regular meetings.

Quilts of Valor Donations

On an obvious side note, in order that this event go forward, all VQ members are encouraged to make and submit a Quilt of Valor for presentation (see the requirements). Whether made singularly or in a group, a Quilt of Valor is an extremely rewarding experience and one that truly says to Veterans, "Thank you for your service to ensure our continued freedom."
