Valley ladies bring their sewing and artistic talents to a group that meets regularly in Bowsman to create quilts that provide comfort to the sick and bereaved, to mark a wedding or a birth, to welcome a newcomer or to celebrate a special birthday.

All volunteers, they donate their time and fabric and help with fundraisers to cover the cost of necessary materials. They also encourage young people from 4-H to join them in this community project.

The Foundation is pleased to support these ladies in their efforts to make this valley a good place to live.
