Thank you!
Thank a Veteran each and every day

So, reading thru the discussion of the new policy, what it means to us is: If you bring a top that was completely made by you (cut (even if you use the donated fabric--remember, you are welcome to come by and get and cut up some of this donated fabric) by you, pieced completely by you) your first name and last initial, city and state go on the label. All kits cut by one of our members, pieced by anyone, will have made by LOLQOV--I need it this way cause I've tried those pieces of paper and they get lost and it isn't fun guessing. The labels are made and donated by Cindi, to whom I am MOST grateful. Machine quilters, just insert your first name last initial, city and state on the label. The VA Hospitals are insisting we put NO personal information on the labels or they will, with a black marker, cover it up. This really is not a new rule...when I started with QOV in 2004, that was the way it was. Of course at that time most of the quilts were being shipped overseas and we were told no full names or addresses. So, in thinking about it, it's not about us, it's about saying thank you to the troops. So, we continue on and do what we do best! Rita
