Quilt shop honors those killed in war


May 28, 2004

And Sew It Goes, a quilting and needlework shop at Historic Savage Mill, invites visitors to help create quilts to honor the memory of a serviceman or servicewoman who died during the conflicts in Iraq or Afghanistan. The goal is to create a quilt for each who has died.

The event, called Operation Homefront Quilts, will be held from noon to 5 p.m. Sunday at the mill, 8600 Foundry St. in Savage.

Each participant will learn to create and work on a memorial quilt. The quilts will be sent to families of the servicemen and servicewomen.

No quilting experience is needed, but participants should know how to sew. Take fabric in patriotic colors or patterns. The shop will also offer free supplies.

Sewing can be done by hand; participants are welcome to take a sewing machine.

Admission is free. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
