Mary Lynn and Quilts of Valor on tv this morning!

Remember all those months ago we talked about LaSalle Blanks coming to the shop and videotaping Mary Lynn, a QOV workshop, etc?  Today, finally, the first of a two part episode aired.  It was so exciting to see the workshop and listen to all the participants talk about quilts and wounded soldiers.  Go and check it out, but be prepared, it is emotional!

Tomorrow we will have a link to the second part of the series.


Here are “the girls” at the filming workshop in August.

Here is a great comment from Sue G about Mary Lynn, a sentiment that I couldn’t have said any better!

” Bravo Zulu to you Mary Lynn, you started the ball rolling here in Virginia Beach with Quilts of Valor. For those of you who don’t know, Mary Lynn Slough is THE reason that the Tidewater Quilters’ Guild and the Hampton Roads Virginia Area are so active in making Quilts of Valor. Yes, a lot of us have made quilts or donated fabric or cash for postage, but Mary Lynn keeps us going. She cuts the fabric for the block kits, puts the blocks together into tops or arranges for someone else to make the tops, arranges for longarm quilters to quilt the tops, finds someone to bind the quilts, makes a label and presentation case for each and every quilt and ships (a lot of the time at her own expense) the quilts to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center’s ICU in Germany.”

Mary Lynn was also instrumental in Stitch ‘n Stuff being involved with Marianne Fons and the shops participation in the fabric launch in Houston.

A big thank you Mary Lynn!

Later, Sandra
