JUDY HOWARD QUILTS AND THANKFULNESS

Quilted Love Letters for America—Thanking Our Troops
In this 45-90 minute quilt trunk show program designed to honor our military and veterans’ families, award winning author Judy Howard tells stories of heroism and sacrificial love of God and Country from her new book Thanking Our Troops—God Bless America Touring Quilts.

Judy displays fifty or more of the 200 winning quilts submitted by children and adults across the nation in her contest “How Do I Love America—Let Me Quilt the Ways.” These little quilts have cheered troops in Baghdad and have brought rave reviews from prestigious quilt shows like AQS and HMQS and are crisscrossing the U.S. to blanket America with the Fabric of Hope to unify our torn nation by returning to our founding fathers’ values.

All profits from Judy’s books, programs and $100 quilt exhibit rental fees go to nonprofits who provide quilts for wounded troops and the families of our fallen heroes who have defended our freedoms. This exhibit is free when you schedule Judy’s quilt trunk show program. Many groups take advantage of Judy’s Fund-Raising opportunities by ordering books by the case to sell or give as gifts.

“ Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world—indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Meed
