Since 2002, Quilts of Valor has sewn more than 1,000 quilts for veterans.

Through that, Ray Zabloudil, owner of Bev’s Stitchery on U.S. Highway 24, has been a supporter of the nonprofit, Linda Lafford said.

So, she said, it was about time to present Zabloudil, an Army veteran, with a quilt of his own.

Last Wednesday afternoon at Bev’s, a group of QoV stitchers called Zabloudil over and surprised him with a golden retriever-themed quilt.

While they waited for Zabloudil to arrive, a young woman buying sewing supplies asked what the group was doing.

When Lafford explained Quilt of Valor’s mission, the woman said that she was also a veteran.

And with that, the group had its next quilt recipient.
