Another Beautiful Quilt to Giveaway to a Local Veteran
Our local quilting angels, Valerie Lamont and Judy Lockner, are back at it. If you were to visit Tri County Economic Development District (TEDD) anytime in the next couple months you will see the next beautiful quilted creation to be raffled off to a local veteran. The quilt this time around has a very patriotic flare, sporting stars and stripes and when asked about the making of the quilt Lamont replied that the quilt is based off a pattern called “Crazy Stars and Stripes”. “It was super fun to sew and went together fairly quickly” said Lamont.
Last fall Lamont and Lockner acted upon their idea to craft beautiful quilts that they would then pass on to local Veterans. Just before Christmas Lamont and Lockner, in partnership with TEDD, held a drawing that was free to enter for all local veterans. That first quilt went home with Kathy Callan, a local veteran who is active locally in the Stevens County Veterans Court. Callan’s reaction to receiving the quilt was priceless. “I am so thankful for the quilt and just want everyone to know that the work that was done in creating and presenting the quilt really does convey gratitude for the service that the veterans have given” said Callan to Lamont and Lockner.
