AHQ Milstone - 9000 quilts! (and a reminder about APWQ)

Dear friends of the American Hero Quilt Project,

On Friday we packed up 120 quilts that have been sent off to Afghanistan. With this shipment more than 9,000 quilts have been given to our injured servicemembers. THANK YOU for all the help you have given to this project.

American Hero Quilts will have an information booth at the Association of Pacific West Quilt Show being held from Friday through Sunday at the Tacoma Convention Center. There will be flyers and letters of thanks from some of the recipients. Stop by and say hi and if anyone will be there on Saturday afternoon, and you have an hour (or a couple of hours) to help man the booth, please give me a call. 360-908-4692.
