Gammill® & Hobbs Bonded Fibers sponsor Quilts of Valor

Gammill Quilting Systems is pleased to announce a sponsorship agreement with the Quilts of Valor Foundation (Seaford, DE), and Hobbs Bonded Fibers (Waco, TX). The Quilts of Valor Foundation is dedicated to providing ALL war wounded and injured service members and veterans with lap sized wartime quilts called Quilts of Valor (QOV). This sponsorship agreement provides batting for the construction of over 6,000 Quilts of Valor.

Hobbs Bonded Fibers (an ISO certified 9001:2000 company, specializing in the manufacture of nonwoven products for industrial and consumer markets), produced a special run of 60" wide Heirloom 80/20 batting at a very beneficial price. Gammill Quilting Systems provided the shipping and handling of the batting to 18 locations across the United States based on requests from QOV quilters.

Catherine Roberts, 2003 founder of the Quilts of Valor Foundation, commented, “A QOV is a beautifully made, pieced and quilted wartime quilt presented as a thank you for a veteran or current service members’ service, sacrifice and valor. I’m thrilled that we are partnering with Gammill and Hobbs. This venture will ensure that we can continue to provide high quality QOVs for the thousands of war wounded.”
