Joshua’s Hands is set to hold another of its community sewing events to make quilts for wounded warriors. This will be the 12th such event and quilters of all ages are welcome to join the effort.
There will be plenty of jobs during the July 8-17 program, including taking jeans apart, cutting and sewing and quilting. No experience is required and all supplies will be provided.
Donations of red, white and blue cotton fabrics are sought. Experienced quilters are welcome to bring their own machines. Cash donations also are welcome to help underwrite expenses—$53 will sponsor one quilt.
Over the years, the group has made more than 1,000 quilts, which have been sent to wounded veterans in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait, as well as to military hospitals at Ramstein and Landstuhl in Germany.
The quilting will take place at the Purcellville Plaza Shopping Center, 201 N. Maple Av., Units C-D. For more information, go to joshuashands.org.
