Star Spangled Stitchers

About Star Spangled Stitchers

Star Spangled Stitchers is a group of volunteers who donate their time, materials, and workmanship to make “Quilts of Valor” for Norton County veterans. Veterans are presented with these quilts during ceremonies in appreciation for their service, sacrifice, and valor in serving our nation. 

The group's first presentation was July 2016; they have made and presented 224 Quilts of Valor to Norton County veterans since. 

MatchDay Fundraising Project

Name of Project/Initiative: Quilts of Valor

Fundraising Goal: $2,750

Project Description: The group has approximately 50 more quilts to make for Norton County veterans. MatchDay Funds will be used to help offset the cost of materials. Each quilter is given a stipend of $125 for each quilt. This is only a small amount of the $450 a quilt costs in materials, quilting, and time. 

How the project will benefit Norton County

"We have many veterans in Norton County who served our country in the military. We want to let them know that we appreciate their time, energy, and the sacrifices they gave to our country. Many times we forget the sacrifices they have made for our county and each of us individually. Our quilts not only recognize the veterans, but cover them with love and appreciation," said Regina Stark.
