We are a busy bunch of quilters that strive to provide quilts as our small and humble way of saying "thanks" to our returning troops. Rita Pennington (firstname.lastname@example.org) is our "Drill Sergeant" and she keeps the (quilting) troops moving and motivated. We have 7 monthly sew-ins: St. Charles, Elgin, Rolling Meadows, Arlington Heights, Crest Hill, Geneva and Montgomery. See side bar for more info.

Thank a Veteran each and every day

This is the "set up" crew:
Day one of the show! We got there to find out we had double the size booth I was expecting. They also had tables in our booth and I wondered what that was about too. Guess we have access to 3 sewing machines all day making blocks plus the few in the Make It booth from 2-5 PM. hmmm, wonder if next time we can have access to a longarm machine !!!
