APPLETON, Wis. (WBAY) – A Fox Valley quilting organization is honoring military service members this weekend.

The Darting Needles Quilt Guild’s quilt show kicks off Saturday at Fox Valley Lutheran High School in Appleton. The guild will honor 15 service members with a presentation and handmade “quilt of valor” at the show.

“It’s our way of showing them that we honor them and we appreciate their service, whether it is current or the past,” said Debra McIntire, quilt show chair.

The 15 quilts are part of 200 that will be on display. There will also be a bake sale, vendors and silent auction to support the guild.

Doors will open at 10 a.m. The presentation is at 3 p.m.
