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.

QOV Request.....can you help? For October 3rd
We have a request for a QOV for a veteran from the Dessert Storm war
for several deployments. ... The requester says: "But his service
doesn’t stop there. He has also been Commander of our Wood Dale
This man is a veteran, but his service to OTHER veterans, service men and women is profound.
We are having our installation of officers on 10/3 and were hopeful the quilt could be dedicated to him at that time.
If a couple of ladies from your organization could come, we’d love to
have you join us for our installation dinner and ceremony."...."
5:00 PM Cocktails, 5:45 PM installation & presentation. Dinner
follows program........The ladies that come to present the quilt are
welcome to stay for the dinner. I’d be honored for them to sit with me!"
Let me know, thank you.
