news and blankets being made


September 14, 2022

We're considering ways to generate income other than just relying on donations.  We now have a sales tax license for when we start selling items. 

  



Gold Star Quilt

August 11, 2022


SFC Aaron Henderson from Maine was a Green Beret who was KIA in Afghanistan in 2012.  His friends, family and his hometown hold an annual event in his honor.  We were asked to donate raffle items, but Peggy offered to make a quilt for Aaron's mother instead.  It will be presented to her during the 2022 event opening ceremony.  


Our name and funds were not used to produce this quilt.

Blanket in the works by Peggy for an Army infantryman who served in Afghanistan. He asked for blue fabric that matches the dress uniform infantry cord. The cord will be sewn onto the center of the blanket.

Quilt Raffle Update

August 10, 2022


The winner of the quilt raffle asked to be anonymous and for it to be donated to a veteran. We donated it to the Wichita Chapter of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association. They have decided to pass it on to a lady veteran who they helped after she was shot and left for dead by her boyfriend.

We're so excited to welcome an extremely talented volunteer to the team!  Fran is a quilter who is VERY good with a longarm quilting machine.  This is a quilt that she and Peggy made together (Peggy made the top layer star design and Fran made the circles and lines design).  Fran will be helping us make quilts that we'll sell to raise funds.
