I have joined a new sewing group that meets once a month at the
for the purpose of making quilt blocks for Quilts of Valor. The blocks will be put into Quilts of Valor
and presented to veterans who have been touched by war in the Fair Park Senior Center
area. Lorrie Brown is our regional
coordinator and has put a tremendous amount of time, money and effort into this
cause. I am proud to do what little I can to help make quilt blocks that become
beautiful quilts and are later presented to military veterans in recognition
and gratitude for their service and sacrifice. Cumberland County
AND we have FUN!
Come join us, we meet the first Monday of the month at the
Senior Center 1433 Livingston Road,
from 4:15 until 7:00 pm.

We are busy, our little heads are all down working hard.
Come join us, we have room for you.
From the Crossville Chronicle June 30, 2014 (link to article)
During the month of June, the National Quilts of Valor (QOV) Organization awarded its 100,000th quilt to military veterans who have been touched by war since it began 11 years ago.
The Crossville QOV group of 14 volunteers met at the Fair Park Senior Center on June 2 from 4 to 7 p.m. and worked diligently on piecing cut fabrics and binding quilts that were available to work on. Machines were busy sewing, as much was accomplished during the three-hour session.
