QUILTS OF VALOR
I want to thank the Quilt Guild on behalf of all the children who received a quilt at Royal Family Kids Camp this summer! The photo shows some of the children and their quilts. We are not allowed to show their faces, but believe me, they were smiling! I wish I could have gotten a photo of ALL the children that received a quilt, but we don’t force them to pose for a photo. The love that you all have shown to these wounded small ones fills my heart so full it spills out my eyes. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough. There are over a hundred RFKC camps happening over the summer all over the country. Ours is the only one that I know about, that each child gets to take a quilt made especially for them home. We are blessed beyond measure. Angie Self
This is a new Charity Quilt opportunity for the Guild. It is not in place of any other charity quilts that are being made, but an addition to make it easier for members to participate in making Charity Quilts. The hours reported for making these quilts will be given to Jerriann Massey and tallied with all other charity hours.
These quilts will be donated to organizations that serve women and children in crisis. If you have a suggestion please let us know.
· Kits will contain a pattern and fabric to make the quilt tops.
· We would like you to donate the backing and batting if possible and try quilting the quilt yourself. If you cannot, bring the top back within two months to a Guild meeting and we will see that it is done.
· If you need backing and batting when you pick up a kit, let us know and we will make some available for you.
We will also be accepting fabric and batting donations.
· We accept yardage, pre-cuts and large scraps. (nothing smaller than a fat quarter)
· Downsize your stash – has that fabric sat there forever?
· Think of Cuddle Quilts when you shop – found a great sale lately?
· We will take large batting pieces that can be sewn together. But if you find a great sale………..
We would like to compile a list of Guild members who would help with quilting the tops if it comes back to us unquilted. If you are not up to making a quilt, would you consider sewing binding? Please let us know.
Kit Parties –Watch the newsletter and social media sites for announcements about kit parties.
If anyone has finished the top they can mail it to me at 112 E. Beverly Dr. Malakoff, TX. 75148 I will be sure to get it to a quilter along with getting the binding on it. If mailing to me please include the binding. Things are in such a strange shape I have no clue as to when we will be able to meet again. I will gladly mail the money back to you for postage. Please attach your name to the top. Every now and then... especially since all are the same pattern I get one mixed up. I generally figure it out. For those of you that have done this as well as other ways to help our Veterans I sincerely thank you. Over the last 16 years we have been able to present well over 900 quilts. None of this would have happened had you as well as other guilds in East Texas not been so caring and generous. If you did not receive all the clues let me know and I will get them to you.
You have humbled me with your support, Nancy Kemp
