"I have registered our groups for prizes and gifts that have been donated to QOV. Names will be drawn throughout the day and calls to the winning participants will be made by the Executive Director, Susan Gordon. The grand prize is a Janome Artistic AQ18dx Midarm Quilting Machine. As each top is completed, we have been asked to email a picture of the quilt and the quilter. QOV will be posting the photos on Facebook all day at https://www.facebook.com/quiltsofvalorfoundation ."
Remember to have your name drawn, you have to attend the sew day. Bring a brown bag lunch, your sewing machine and all the things you would need to sew that day. Ironing stations will be provided. If you have any patriotic fabric, bring it along too; the RCQG board has bought some. The minimum size for a quilt is 55" by 65" [a bit bigger than the VA quilts we make] . We are aiming to make ours 60 x 80".
The Service Day is at the Elks lodge on Brockton, near the DMV. We are asked not to eat in the sewing room. We will eat out in the hall or outside if the day is good. It is advised you bring a sweater. Sewing hours are 9 AM to 3 PM.
See you there!
