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

Yorkville October Sew-In
Whew! We're small but getting it done! Love how our groups come together. Making tops, another group bundling with backings and batting, and yet another group doing the "fixing"! Here are pictures of the tops that came in yesterday.
