Lonestar Quilting in uptown Marysville is planning an event to help soldiers stay warm, wherever they are stationed.

Owner Deb Wheeler said she is organizing an event called Quilts of Valor, to be held May 21 at the American Legion post in Marysville.

The idea is to pair experienced quilters with beginners, she said, with the beginners doing most of the work under the other quilters' supervision. The resulting quilts then will be donated to troops serving overseas, Wheeler said.

Because of space requirements, quilters interested in participating should pre-register by calling (937) 644-1234.
