National Day of Sewing

Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop, along with the members of String-A-Long Stars & Stripes QOV Group, are hosting a Quilts of Valor National Day of Sewing and we want you to be a part of it!

The Quilts of Valor Foundation honors Veterans for their service to our country though the gift of Quilts. The Quilts of Valor Foundation has awarded over 177,000 quilts since 2004.  The String-A-Long Stars & Stripes Group, an off shoot of the String-A-Long Quilt Guild, has been making quilts to honor veterans since 2014 and has made over 250 quilts. The National Day of Sewing takes place at this time every year as quilters, quilt groups and shops get together to make quilts as a nation.

Sweet Stitches is excited to be an Official Quilt of Valor Shop and to be a part of this National Sewing Day. This is our third year hosting this event at our shop and we would love to have our customers and friends join us. Come into Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop on Saturday, February 2, 2018 between the hours of 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm to make one of three different blocks designs or try all three! Our classroom will be set up with our new accuquilt Cutting System and elna sewing machines. Sweet Stitches will supply all materials for the project and members of the String-A-Long Stars & Stripes Group will be there to help anyone wanting to make a quilt block to honor a veteran. 

Make a block on February 2nd and your name will be put into a drawing for one of three Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop Gift Certificates $25.00, and $15.00 and $10.00 gift certificates) will be drawn at the end of the day. (winner need not be present).  We will give the winners a call and certificates can be picked up the following week during our business hours.
