As some of you may know, Netroots Nation is being held in Detroit July 17 to July 20. There is a group set up, the DK VA Hospital Service Project. I am co-chair, along with Broths, to provide hand made scarves and hats for the vets. Sara R is chairing the committee overseeing the quilt project. She wants to have handmade quilts for all the vets residing at the nursing home part of the VA hospital. Follow me below the orange squiggle for more on this.

My sister, Ann, delivering quilts to the Palo Alto VA Hospital prior to NN13
The DK Quilt Guild did something special last year. We made 47 wheelchair and lap quilts and delivered them to the VA Hospital in Palo Alto for the patients in the Spinal Cord Injury Unit. But that wasn't all! We also delivered a small army of teddy bears, donated by the DK community:
It is our pleasure to announce the delivery of the DK Quilt Guild: NN13 Veterans Quilts to the San Jose Veterans Hospital on June 19th, 2013. Please visit our photo gallery on the delivery: Photo Gallery
Netroots Nation is about more than panels, workshops, speeches, and meeting friends. From the beginning, it has always had an element of service, too. Service lifts hearts and brings people together in really good ways.
