News from the field, submitted by Marcus sales rep Julie Manning:
Debbie Mackenzie from Stitch Chicks Quilt Shop in Franklin, CT, hosted a ‘Quilts of Valor Charity Sew Session.’ During the event, customers created five of these quilts for the Quilts of Valor program. The group took advantage of the gorgeous LOVE & GLORY center panel, Strip-It fabric and coordinates by Faye Burgos to stitch up simple but meaningful gifts to show their gratitude to our US servicemen.
