ABOUT COMMON THREADS OF LOUISA
We are a relatively small group that gets together once a week at St. James Episcopal Church of Louisa. Marie Farrell started the group in 2014. Teaching others how to sew and quilt and continues teaching to this day. We also have several volunteers that work from home making quilts for us. We have donated hundreds of quilts over the years.
In 2019 several of us attended a national quilt show in Newport News. At that show, Tina Chaleki (one of our members) found the Quilts of Valor booth. She purchased a kit and made her first Quilt of Valor and we were all hooked. Since that first quilt, our small group has given out almost 50 quilts to local Veterans. We are so proud of the many men and women that serve/served our country. This is a small thank you from us for all they do.
