    Name: Quilts of Valor
    Date: February 2, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    The Old Jail Quilters will be taking part in Quilts of Valor National Sew Day on Saturday the 2nd, quilting to honor and comfort those touched by war. Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq. From the beginning, she had definite ideas about standards of excellence for Quilts of Valor: I knew a Quilt of Valor had to be a quality-made quilt, not a “charity quilt.” Quilts of Valor would be the civilian equivalent of a Purple Heart award. A Quilt of Valor had to be quilted, not tied, which meant hand or machine quilting. Quilts of Valor would be “awarded,” not just passed out like magazines or videos. A Quilt of Valor would say unequivocally, “Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and valor in serving our nation in combat.” Anyone wishing to participate is welcome. Quilting will take place all day at the Old Jail. Join in the quilting or just stop by and watch the quilters make their magic. The quilts that are produced will be presented to local veterans.
