"Quilts of Valor Display at the Museum of Alaska Transportation in Wasilla"

Press Release

The Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry and the North Star Quilters annual quilt show promises to be the biggest show ever! There will be more quilts than ever on display this year.

This year’s show will include quilts from the "Quilts of Valor" project started by a quilter in Washington who wanted to give back to our servicemen and servicewomen that have been touched by war. These quilts bring warmth, appreciation and healing to whom they are intended.

The local effort for the Quilts of Valor project is a personal project of Cat Thompson and friend Marcia Harlamert. The Quilts of Valor, most in our patriotic colors of red, white and blue will be proudly displayed July 30th from noon to 3pm at the Museum of Alaska Transportation and Industry.

Over the years Quilts of Valor has given over 142,000 quilts made from many hearts to provide warmth and love to those servicemen and women who served our country. Cat and Marcia called upon their friends and family to help with their goal for over 30 quilts each. Their Quilts of Valor project has been in the works for months and it will be a privilege to view these awesome quilts in person before they are presented to their recipients across the country.

Come see the most quilts ever displayed at MATI 3800 W Museum Drive and please join us Saturday, July 30th from 12pm-3pm.
