Quilts of Valor presentation on Veterans Day

The Central Idaho Quilt Guild will be hosting two Quilts of Valor presentations quilts on Tuesday, Nov. 11. One will be at the Orofino VFW Hall at 7 p.m., for veterans who live in Orofino.

The other presentation will be at the American Legion Hall in Kamiah at 2 p.m., also on Veterans Day, for veterans that live in the Kamiah, Kooskia, and Stites areas.

In order to receive one of these quilts, the veteran must have seen action in a war, be it World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, or Afghanistan.

The public is invited to attend one or both of these very moving presentations.

Several ladies in the guild have made these quilts, some as a group and others individually. They come up with their own designs or one that has been suggested in a quilt magazine.

They use fabric they have purchased or some that have been donated to the guild for this purpose. Some ladies cut out the material for the quilts, some made the tops, some did the quilting, and some sewed on the binding. Some made the whole quilt themselves.

The guild will serve cookies, coffee, and punch at the end of each presentation.
