Share the Love - Quilts for Kids, benefiting wood county child protective service

Quilts For Kids

Benefiting Wood County Child Protective Services

Stitchin’ Heaven is partnering with Wood County Child Protection Board to bring smiles and warmth to the needy children in our area. Would you help us share the love by donating a completed quilt to this very worthy cause? Your quilt will be given to a local child that is in the foster care system. These children often come in to foster care with very few possessions and having their own quilt provides them not only with a sense of warmth, but also the feeling of comfort and safety.  

Quilts of all sizes are appreciated and the boys and girls range in age from infants to teens, so we need a good variety of sizes and colors.

Quilts of Valor

Benefiting War Veterans of East Texas

Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq.

According to Catherine: The dream was as vivid as real life. I saw a young man sitting on the side of his bed in the middle of the night, hunched over. The permeating feeling was one of utter despair. I could see his war demons clustered around, dragging him down into an emotional gutter. Then, as if viewing a movie, I saw him in the next scene wrapped in a quilt. His whole demeanor changed from one of despair to one of hope and well-being. The quilt had made this dramatic change.  

The message of my dream was:     Quilts = Healing.

Quilts of Valor Additional Information:

Fabric used for a Quilt of Valor should be quality, 100% cotton fabric appropriate for adults.

A Quilt of Valor does not have to be red, white and blue, but patriotic colors are very popular with recipients.

Patterns and blocks can be of any design suitable for a patriotic theme.

Avoid juvenile, gender or branch specific fabrics, unless the recipient is known to you.

The recommended size of a Quilt of Valor is 60″ x 80″; it must be a minimum of 55″ x 65″ and maximum of 72″ x 90.

The Quilt consists of a top, batting, and backing. It must be machine or hand quilted. A tied quilt is not acceptable for a Quilt of Valor.

Backings provided to The LongArmy Volunteer must be 8″ wider in width and 8″ longer in length.

QOVF Members in good standing may request quilting of their tops by a LongArmy Volunteer, free of charge.

Use quality, low loft batting such as cotton, cotton blends, polyester or polyester blends. Quilting should be appropriate for the quilt and not overly dense, which can reduce the loft of the quilt.

Double fold, also known as French Fold, binding is recommended for durability. Hand stitch or neatly machine stitch binding.

A Quilt of Valor must be labeled as such, and include the name of the veteran or service member. See our Policies and Procedures for additional information.
