November 11, 2022 was a great night presenting four Patriot Quilts to veterans in honor their service in the military. The program was well attended by LNT members, families of the recipients, and members of the GI Joe Post 244. Linda Slye presided over the presentations with fun anecdotes shared by the veterans along with details of their service. It was a very enjoyable evening.
Now we are ready to start looking forward to our 2023 presentation. The date has already been set for November 9th – now we just need quilts!! Our goal is to present 4-5 quilts per year/presentation.
We have had inquiries regarding recommended size for the quilts. The committee is recommending a preferred size of 55″x65″ and a basic wheelchair size (per
various websites) of 42″x36″ or 45″x36″.
The Louisville Nimble Thimbles had the honor of presenting a Patriot Quilt to each of three recipients on November 17, 2021. The ceremony was held at the American Legion GI Joe Post 244 in Jeffersontown.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the recipients, as well as all veterans and active duty military personnel. Your service is greatly appreciated.
