We want to hear from you!

If you have an AHQ event planned, or already had an AHQ event that you would like to tell us about, please email us at As we get more items we will try to post a calendar at the beginning of each month, letting you know about upcoming AHQ events.

Thank you to all those who have regular AHQ events and help keep the quilts rolling in! We look forward to hearing from you!

Debbie Mumm mentions us in her new book!

A new book by Debbie Mumm was published in September titled I Care With Quilts: Sewing to Make a Difference, and she mentions American Hero Quilts in the forward. If you are looking for fun and easy patterns to inspire you, this book will do the trick. Thank you, Debbie, for spreading the word of American Hero Quilts and we look forward to many fun (and productive!) sewing days with your new book!

Thank you for your support!

A big Thank You to all those who attended the fundraisers at Sound Foods today! We had a lovely tea in the afternoon and a party with wine and delicious appetizers in the evening. We hope everyone is enjoying their purchases from the silent auctions.

As part of the afternoon tea, AHQ presented a Naval service member with a quilt and reminded us why we were there. Thank you notes from prior recipients were posted around the room along with some of the quilts that will soon make their way to returning service members.

Thanks also to Sound Food Catering and Events for the food and a great venue, and to the amazing volunteers that worked the events.

Operation Quilt Drop to be held on November 7

For those of you not familiar with us, American Hero Quilts provides quilts to injured service members returning home through Madigan Hospital. This is a rewarding but costly endeavor. To that end, we are hosting fundraising events at Sound Foods on Vashon Island on November 7, 2009.

We will have a High Tea in the afternoon. The cost is $15 and two seating times are available:
First seating - Noon-2pm
Second seating - 2pm-4pm
Please call Sharon Aukland at 206-463-3334 for reservations.

At 6pm, join us for a party with wine, hors d'oeuvres and music. The cost for the evening event is $25.00 and no reservation is needed.

Silent auction items will be available at all of the events, so be sure to leave yourself time to do some shopping!

If you or anyone you know would be interested in supporting American Hero Quilts, please consider attending one (or both!) of these events. If you would like more information or have questions about the fundraisers, please contact American Hero Quilts at 206-463-5650.
