Neo-Century learns about quilts of valor
Neo-Century Club members viewed on Oct. 1 the colorful and varied materials and patterns available at the Sew What Quilt Shop.
The group heard about Quilts of Valor and viewed some examples.
The Quilts of Valor Foundation coordinates quilts being made for military service members and veterans touched by war regardless of the conflict. The quilts are lifetime awards.
Members meet once a month to work on the patriotic quilts. When a quilt is completed, it is presented to a recipient in a special ceremony.
The quilts can be worth as much as $250.
After a business meeting at Hilltop Manor, hostesses Marge Christensen and Shirley Carlson served refreshments.
The next meeting will be Nov. 5. Elaine Morse and Shirley Carlson will be hostesses. Members are reminded to bring $15 toward a community Christmas gift in lieu of a gift exchange.
