QOV National Sewing Day Reminder Notice February 4

Saturday, February 4th is QOV National Sewing Day.  It's a day locations throughout the country have set aside to sew "together" making thank you quilts for our Veterans.

Land of Lincoln Quilts of Valor has two locations this year: 

St. Charles Moose Lodge, 2250 IL Rt 38, 10-4 pm.  If you are working on a project, go ahead and bring it along so when you complete, we have kits.  Bring along sewing machine, your quilting supplies, a small cutting mat and maybe an iron/mat.  The two kits we have will have some subcutting and being we are expecting a nice group, might have better access to cutting and pressing.  We are having potluck lunch. (NOTE:  we are expecting special visitors)   Also, bring along your power strip/extension cords.  Electricity is on the outer walls of the hall only.  I had mentioned my concern if everyone brought a crock pot.  Didn't say you cannot bring one, but was thinking if you did, you can keep it heating at your station until we set up for lunch?  I hope you have registered for the prizes the Foundation has.  NOTE:  I have had a few questions about membership.  You do not have to be a member of QOV to sew on National Sewing Day or any day, for that matter.  It does not cost you to sew a Quilt of Valor for a Veteran, just your time and thank you!

Sugar Grove Fire Department, 25 Municipal Drive, 9-4 pm.  This is hosted by the Common Threads Quilt Guild of Sugar Grove  Bring your sewing machine and notions if you plan to sew. Plenty of opportunity to cut and iron. Bring a lunch. Contact Betty Ivins at if you would like a kit prepared for you.

So, fill them bobbins and come to have a great time!
