Quilts Of Valor - Greater Wichita Area
QOV Greater Wichita Area was the brainchild of Katy Vickers (QOV member since November 2004) and Cassandra Carson (QOV member since October 2005.)
QOV Greater Wichita Area officially started in February 2006 with only 4 members. After the semi-annual PQG show in June of 2006, the membership exploded.
PBS Quilts of Valor Preview
"Quilts of Valor," a 73-minute documentary starring national quilters Eleanor Burns, Alex Anderson, and Mark Lipinski and hosted by Marianne Fons, has just been made available to all public television stations nationwide by its producer, Iowa Public Television.
We believe our QOVF model of making Quilts of Valor is a win-win for the topper, longarmer and recipients. Many of our toppers are relatively new to the world of machine quilting and think they can do as well on their domestic machines. But, most can only stitch-in-the-ditch or do a large meander.
Our longarmers take a nice top and transform it into a Cinderella-at-the-ball quilt. As far as the longarmer goes, the advantage of volunteering is that you can quilt tops from all over the nation. That is, you get great exposure and potentially new customers. Contact us if you would like to volunteer!
