National Day of Sewing Event


*****  National Day of Sewing  *****

Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop, along with the members of String-A-Long Stars & Stripes, 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 150,000 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 have our shop be a part of this national sewing day this year and we would love to have our customers and friends join us too. Come into Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop on Saturday, February 4, 2017 between the hours of 10:00 am to 4:00 pm to sew a "String" quilt block for the Quilts of Valor Foundation. Our classroom will have sewing machines set up for you to use and all materials will be cut and ready for you to sew. 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 4th and your name will be put into a drawing for one of three Sweet Stitches Quilt Shop Gift Certificates. $50.00, $25.00, and $15.00 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.

We hope you can join us to make a string block for a Quilt of Valor and thank a veteran for their service to our country.
