Since our last little talk Elaine and I have made some QOV Award Presentations, made our annual trek to the Mancuso Mid-Atlantic Quilt Fest, again setting up a Quilts of Valor Booth, promoting our passion, raffling off a reconditioned Singer Featherweight, a Calendar Quilt, raising some money for our group, Not Forgotten QOV and a new sister group, Grateful Threads of Elizabeth City, NC. Like our sister group in Corning, NY, Southern Tier QOV, we will never be able to thank those Quilts of Valor volunteers enough for their support to the Foundation and our service members and veterans. Elaine and I are so grateful for their never ending support. We would be amiss if we didn't mention those that so unselfishly support Not Forgotten QOV.

- Olah's Restoration & Service
The Singer was completely restored by Olah's Retorations & Service in Moyock, NC. Their work is, in our opinion, unparalleled. You can follow them on Facebook. Give them a shout if you need some work or service on an older machine. In this case older means there is no computer involved. Like our latest Featherweight. Now we are on the hunt for next years raffle Featherweight.
Our Raffle Singer was a 1951 Featherweight "Fire" and the winning ticket was drawn by Dave Mancuso. Our winner was Mary G. from Norfolk, VA.
