Introduction to Quilts of Valor Program
Sandy Struve and members of
The Northern New Mexico Quilt Guild
Pictured at left is one of the quilts and the recipient from the New Mexico National Guard who received a Quilts of Valor (Q of V) quilt from the Santa Fe guild members. The guild presented 125 quilts to guard members in December 2016.
Sandy Struve and her teammates will share how their guild interacts with the national program. The program has specific guidelines and requirements to follow. Information shared at this meeting will provide an opportunity for NMQA members to decide whether or not we wish to become an active member group with the Quilts of Valor program. So ask questions.
