Marianne Fons and Catherine Roberts
Huntley Park District (Rt 47 and Mill St) is the place for a weekend of Quilts of Valor August 19 and 20th. Marianne Fons and Catherine Roberts, the founder of QOV, will be there. The address and directions is: Cosman Center , 12015 Mill Street, Huntley. (From Rt. 47, our entrance to the fest is West, off of Main Street, Huntley IL, proceed South on Lois Lane, to the parking lot on the South Side of the Rec Center/Cosman Cultural Center).

Tickets are on sale for Marianne Fons' speeches on Friday evening at 7 PM and/or Saturday morning at 10:30 AM. You can get these tickets at Quilt n Joy or by calling 847-961-6507.

They are in need of people to come and sew. There are a few spots left for Friday but Saturday is very open from 9 AM - 4 PM. At 1 PM Saturday, they are making QOV presentations to local veterans. There are exhibits and 10 vendors!! Check the website with information.

I will be going on Saturday. They will need some kind of a count by the first of the week of the show as to how many will be there as PBS will be filming that day and they would like to be set up with a fairly accurate count. There will be a concession set up on Saturday and possibly Culver's...or bring your own.

So, join me! Let me know so I can let them far one we have three besides myself.
