TRIBUTE TO THE TROOPS

Poster_8_1.jpg
Although Tribute to the Troops began in Texas in 2004, the local project began when Hart Country Fabrics’ Wednesday Night Ladies Group and the Richville Rockets 4-H Club teamed up to take 34 mini memory quilts to Fort Drum on September 16, 2007. That was just the beginning! After meeting the soldiers at the base, they decided to continue the project because there was still a war going on. They made some modifications to the original pattern to save time and fabric but kept the important elements. By 2011 over 600 mini quilts have been completed. Guild members and many groups have helped including the youth group of the United Church of Richville, members of Stone Presbyterian Church in Ogdensburg, Quilters’ Quorum from Potsdam, a sewing/craft group from Fowler, and members of Tug Hill Quilters from Lowville. Some persons donate supplies. Borderline Quilters and others have given money for supplies. Donations are always appreciated.
