Wounded Warrior C.A.M.O. 

In February 2015, seven members of Bee Sew Brave and two husbands traveled to Estes Park to present quilts to eleven Wounded Warriors who were part of a CAMO week of winter activities. These pictures share a few of the special moments that we spent with some truly heroic people, their spouses and a fantastic group of volunteers who produce and staff this wonderful event. These pictures cannot begin to capture the emotion of the evening. It was an honor to meet everyone connected with the program, and to represent other members of Bee Sew Brave and the Longmont Quilt Guild.
