Quilts of Valor group holding first meeting Wednesday

A Quilts of Valor group is forming this week in Weirton.

Quilts of Valor is an international nonprofit organization of quilters who make quilts for veterans who are “touched by war,” according to a news release.

“We would like to present our local veterans with these beautiful quilts,” the news release notes. “Please join us if you would like to help make quilts or support us in other ways. Don’t know how to quilt? We’ll teach you.”

The first meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Franciscan Residence at Sacred Heart Catholic Church 200 Preston Ave., Weirton.

All are welcome. For information or to express interest in attending, contact Ann at (304) 723-6028.
