The Valiant Warrior Project meets twice a year to teach and mentor quilting skills while making quilts for those who have been wounded in service to our country. To date, the organization has made more than 1,500 quilts, which have been sent to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Qatar, and the military hospitals at Ramstein and Landstuhl.
No experience is needed, no registration is required. All supplies are provided, although donations of red, white, or blue fabric are welcome. Experienced quilters are welcome to bring their own machines if preferred. Those wishing to participate but unable to attend may contribute projects made from home, and monetary contributions to help underwrite quilting and shipping costs are also gladly accepted.
