Quilt show to honor service members

Carol Riggs of Sew What Quilt Shop said it was an emotional experience that no words could describe when a quilt was presented to a member of the armed forces for their active duty service.

Riggs and several others who have helped sew the quilts over the year will present several to local veterans on Veterans Day during a quilt show.

The show will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday at the Marion Community Center.

A group from Marion County has been working on the quilts to be presented the first Sunday of every month at Sew What. Volunteers create all the quilts.

“Anyone is welcome to come help us sew,” Riggs said. “We always have a good time and it’s for a good cause.”
