WE DID IT!  318 QUILTS ARE ON THE WAY TO BIG BEAR CAMP

 

When they arrive at camp in Big Bear this summer the children of military personnel will receive colorful, hand crafted quilts made by our members. This project is by far the largest undertaking by the guild.  It all began with a request by guild member Sandra Straight, asking us to help Seven Stars Foundation by providing quilts for children of military members. Without hesitation we agreed to part of such a worthwhile project.

Ale Hogue's home became “Camp Quilt Central" with a steady stream of members picking up fabric to make quilts or dropping off completed quilts.  Terry Cummings stored the completed quilts in her spare bedroom.  Friends joined the effort by sewing quilts, making financial donations or donating their long arm quilting services.  The Lance family donated hundreds of yards of fabric from their mother's estate.  Leona Lance was a WWII veteran who would have been proud to support this project.

Members of Seven Stars Foundation, picked up the quilts in time for the arrival of the first campers in July.  Seven Stars Foundation was named in honor of the seven crew members killed when their USMC helicopter was shot down in Karmah, Iraq in 2007.  The mission of the foundation is to make a positive impact on children of military families. 

We are proud to share their mission and only wish we could be there to see their smiles when the children receive their quilts.
