Quilts of Valor chapter forming

A chapter of the national organization “Quilts of Valor” is forming at the Carrabelle Beach RV Center, 1843 US 98 West. The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover all combat service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts.

These are small, 55” x 65” quilts often in patriotic colors. The local group will meet Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

You do not need to know how to quilt to participate, just have a desire to make a difference to those who are serving or have served. There will be plenty of work cutting, pressing and sorting. Donations of fabric will be gratefully accepted. If you can, bring your sewing equipment and supplies.

For information, call (816) 803-2880 or 697-2638.
