Volunteer Spirit: Stitching for soldiers

American Quilter's Society/Show

Quilts of Valor

DOWNTOWN KNOXVILLE- Tenn (WVLT) -- More than 600 Quilts are on display at the Knoxville Convention Center for the American Quilter's Society show this week.

500 quilters from 32 countries competed for more than $44,000 in prize money.

For some, quilting is a hobby. For others, it is a trade, and some do it to give them away as gifts.

Kate Meyers has her hand in "Quilts of Valor."

She makes about 8 a month.

Kate is the Tennessee Coordinator of the foundation that gives patriotic patchwork to people touched by war.

She tells us it's a way to say thank you to them (soldiers) for their service and for keeping us safe."

Quilt Show Hours:
Wednesday, July 13 – Friday, July 15, 9:00 am – 6:00 pm
Saturday, July 16, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
