Once again we are coming up on the Mancuso Quilt Festival in Hampton, VA. We hope to see you all there. A major change for this year is we will not be raffling off a Singer Featherweight...sorry it just didn't happen this year. It is getting harder to find them at a reasonable price and even though we are graced with the exceptional skills and talents of Jason and Rebecca Olah from Olah's Restoration & Service out of Moyock, NC it is hard to budget for even with their generous donation of their skills and time. We haven't given up, but this year it just wasn't in the cards. If you need service, restoration or repair for the sewing machines you own that aren't full of computer chips and electronics Olah's is the place to go. Their FB Page link is on the left side of this blog page under Source Links. Check them out. If you've visited our booth in the past...you've seen their work.

The Not Forgotten QOV Booth will again be set up in the lobby. We will be raffling off a quilt. The drawing will be Sunday, Mar 1 at 3 PM. Tickets will be $1 each or 7 Tickets for $5. All of the proceeds are submitted to the National Foundation. These are the funds, from our Trust, that we use to purchase all of the materials and supplies that are used to craft the many Quilts of Valor that are awarded here locally. To the many volunteers who give of their time and talent Elaine and I will forever be grateful for sharing in our commitment to our active service members and veterans. Without you Not Forgotten QOV is just a passing thought. For those of you that purchase raffle tickets, donate and support Not Forgotten QOV, well, we can't thank you enough.
This year we will follow the Quilt Festival with the Events Management Groups (EMG) Annual Spring Craft Market.
