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

I had gotten a request from a fellow (Minnesota) Regional Coordinator to make a presentation. The person requesting the quilt for a friend was from MN but the recipient was from Naperville. She wanted to come and be here for the presentation. The subject came up that her husband was also in Viet Nam, and her son, Iraq. Could we do it? We did and it was fun being in on the surprise. I love sharing these presentations with the "heart" of the Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor.
