Sit & Sew for Charity
At each AQS QuiltWeek event, the American Quilter’s Society partners with a local charity. This year AQS, the Cobblestone Quilters Guild, and quilters attending the show will be making quilt blocks for quilts to be donated to the Medical University of South Carolina’s Children’s Health Center. Look for the Sit & Sew booth and stop to sew a block or two. All supplies are provided. We can make a difference!
Quilts of Valor
This year, AQS is partnering with the Quilts of Valor Foundation (QOVF) to spread the word about QOVF and to get quilters like you involved in the creation of Quilts of Valor. The Foundation’s mission is “to cover service members and veterans touched by war,” and that’s what they do; they literally wrap award recipients with beautiful quilts. At AQS QuiltWeek in Charleston, there will be an exhibit, Quilts of Valor: A 50 State Salute. Join us for two special events this week: Quilts of Valor II: Free Film Viewing on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. and a free lecture about the Quilts of Valor program and how to get involved on Friday at 8:30 a.m. Quilts of Valor will be presented in the AQS Learning Center at noon on Wednesday and Thursday. Visit these events or the exhibit to learn how you and your quiltmaking friends can make a difference!
