Palm Coast, FL- Cut Up and Sew will be exhibiting quilts made by celebrity quilters for Quilted In Honor through March 4th.

“We are very excited to be included in the Quilted In Honor event,” said Susan Josey, co-owner of Cut Up and Sew. “We feel strongly about supporting our veterans so we are blessed to be participating,” she added.

This exhibit travels the US and is displayed primarily at National and International quilt shows.  “We saw an opportunity in the schedule and requested the exhibit.  We were delighted to learn we were accepted,” stated Pat Verhagen also a co-owner. One way funds are raised for veterans in need is from ticket sales. People can purchase a ticket on-line and vote for their favorite quilt. In addition, a percentage of sales from every Quilted In Honor product sold goes towards benefiting military families through the charitable organization, Operation Homefront.

The donation quilt is hanging at Cut Up and Sew and is made and designed by PJ Anderson. The attached picture of the quilt named “Fractured” represents her impression of many of the soldiers returning from war mentally or physically ‘fractured’.  PJ is hosting a trunk show at Cut Up and Sew, Thursday, February 27 from 6-8p.m. PJ will be showing her quilts and will also show more quilts from the exhibit.

Quilted In Honor, led by Island Batik, is a fundraising initiative for Operation Homefront (http://www.operationhomefront.net/), one of the top military fund raising organizations, and is intended to harness the collective power of the quilting industry to give back to the ones that need it most. Operation Homefront was chosen to be the beneficiary of the Quilted In Honor project because of their programs (http://www.operationhomefront.net/wehelp.aspx), their top rank among military charities in the United States, and because of the need they have expressed for quilts and quilted projects.

Cut Up and Sew is located at 160 Cypress Point Parkway, D116 in Palm Coast, FL. They sell Baby Lock sewing machines and repair all brands of sewing machines on-site. They stock a wide selection of fabrics, books, patterns, machine embroidery and notions while offering classes in their state-of-the art classroom.
