Are you available to help staff our desk at the Almonte FibreFest (http://almontefibrefest.ca/) this September 8-9? We are looking for people to take a four hour shift to help with spreading the word, selling hug blocks (fund-raising) and inviting participation. Please let us know which day you would prefer (Saturday, Sunday or both) and whether you would prefer the early or later shift.
On June 10 in Montreal, Jill Greenwood, received her Quilt of Valour from Bonnie Frappier. We are honoured to share our quilting with her. Jill describes it as “a day that I will always treasure!”
Thank you for your service, Jill!
Today, QOV Ottawa, represented by Robbie Chapman, Jackie Fuller and myself, had the honour of presenting quilts to SGT (Ret’d) Jill Tubbs and MWO (Ret’d) Rick Tubbs. It was a pleasure to chat with this couple about their service to our country and to deliver these well-deserved expressions of gratitude.
Here we are at Cabela’s on Palladium Drive spreading the word about QOV and looking for some makers of hug blocks. Drop by and say hello. We are right beside the fudge stand!
This weekend, Cabelas’s (the outdoor store) Kanata, is hosting their Hometown Heroes Event and Quilts of Valour (Ottawa) will be there.
If you want to learn more about Quilts of Valor, we will have volunteers at the ready to answer your questions. Looking for a hug-block (or two or three) to complete and submit for a hug quilt? We will have hug blocks for sale.
We will be at Cabela’s (3065 Palladium Dr, Ottawa, ON K2T 0N2) (across from Tanger Outlet Mall) from 10:00 – 2:00 on Sunday June 17. Let Dad walk around Cabela’s while you get to talk quilts — win-win. See you there!
We are very sad to announce that Pearl is stepping down from her role as Ottawa Group Leader for QOVC due to health reasons.
Pearl was a unifying and encouraging force; her guidance and humour will be sorely missed. We wish her all the best in the future.
