Our group gets together twice a month to sew, share our quilts, chat about our families and have a quick business meeting. Mostly we just have fun! We meet on the 2nd, 4th and 5th (if there is one) Thursdays of each month from 10am to 4pm. The meetings on the 2nd and 5th Thursdays take place at Paradise Sewing in Poway (see address below). The 4th Thursday we meet at my house in Mira Mesa (address shown on the "Visit or Contact Us" page). We'd be happy to have you stop by and meet us. We love to share what we do, meet new people and are always looking for new members.

Welcome to the Quilts of Valor Mira Mesa information page. Our group was formed in November 2014 and is comprised of 23 experienced quilters from the San Diego area. We are dedicated to making Quilts of Valor to be awarded to our service members and veterans.
We are all volunteers and willingly give our time (and money) to this great Foundation. We don't directly solicit donations but would gladly accept them! If you have any fabric in your stash that you don't know what do with, we'd be happy to take it off your hands. We prefer red, white and blue fabrics but also make more "female-friendly" quilts out of general fabrics for our female service members. Have any orphan blocks sitting around? We can incorporate those into our quilts too - we love a challenge! And, of course, we accept monetary donations to help us purchase larger pieces of fabric for the quilt backings and rolls of batting. If you would like to make a donation to our group, thank you!, and contact me using the "Visit or Contact Us" button at the left.
If you would like to request a Quilt of Valor for a veteran or someone who is currently enlisted, please contact me by using the "Visit or Contact Us" button at the left and I will send you the request form. And check out the "QoV Presentations" button to see pictures of a few recipients.
