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

Well, new computer is up and running. Let's see if I can post some pictures. From the RWW last Saturday in Madison: (you're looking for your quilt, huh)
This morning we worked the booth at the Farmers market. My ears perk up when I hear of a Vet. Well, Ron, the one playing music at the Market mentioned he as a Vietnam Vet. We surprised him with a quilt!
