A Chance to Talk to Others

Today we held our first ever Veterans Day sew-in and presentation at Fasturn, our UOW quilt shop between Medford & Jacksonville. It worked out really well. About 20 quilters came for the whole day and we presented five combat veterans with quilts that they chose from the quilts we had displayed in the quilt shop for the day. Four young men who had served in Iraq and one in Vietnam. A relatively unexpected benefit was the opportunity for the recipients to talk to each other about their experiences.
