SAVE THE DATE: June 25 9 AM - 3 PM

Last year, the Ladies Auxiliary from St. John the Baptist Church in Winfield hosted a Quilt of Valor Sew-in. Well, they are doing it again and the info I received:

It is that time of the year again when our Auxiliary seeks to support our veterans in a very special and loving way; by making quilts to provide them warmth and comfort.
If you, your wives or older children can sew a straight line or if you know how to use an iron your help would be most appreciated! OK, even if you can’t sew a straight line, but always wanted to know what goes into making a quilt, you can help. We need sewers and ironers, and sewing machines and irons too, to use for the day.
Donations to purchase the fill and backing materials are always appreciated.
Once again this year we will be working with the Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor group, a chapter of the Quilts of Valor Foundation.

Our event will take place on June 25, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at St. John the Baptist Catholic Parish in the basement of the church, Sebahar Hall. The event takes place on June 25th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

If you have a portable sewing machine, iron or ironing cloth (they work better than boards) we could use those too. Come for an hour or stay for the day, lunch is provided through generous donations.

The address is 0s233 Church St., Winfield, IL. For pictures of last years' event, check out the blog in the blog archive dated: May 25, 2010.
