Fabric-Chicks Quilts of Valor - Help Support Our Troops!!

The mission of the QOV Foundation is to cover ALL war wounded and injured service members and veterans from the War on Terror with donated wartime quilts. Whether injuries are physical or psychological QOVS offers comfort and support. Or as a six year old put it: "When the 'soldiers' are 'warring' and they come home and are hurt, the quilt makes them feel all comfy."

DONATIONS ARE NEEDED, such as thread, good quality material, batting, etc... Each month we will have a drawing open to ALL contributors and participators for a free session on the Long Arm Quilt Machine.

You can be a part of the mission by joining the QOV Group at the Fabric-Chicks Oasis. Bring your donations to the Expo or visit Fabric-Chick Oasis in Minden NV the 1st Sat. of every month .
