Two quilt-related service organizations -- the National Quilt Museum and Quilts of Valor Foundation -- have formed a partnership to help each expand their reach and further their mission.

The National Quilt Museum in Paducah ( promotes the growth and expansion of quilting through exhibits, education programs, preservation and advocacy. The Quilts of Valor Foundation ( works to cover all service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing quilts.

Both organizations are nonprofits primarily funded through donations.

"For both of us to achieve our global missions, we need everyone passionate about quilting involved with our respective organizations," said Frank Bennett, CEO of the National Quilt Museum.

"Through this partnership, both organizations will be able to bring our message to wider audiences."

With the partnership, the public will be able to become a member of both organizations online, from either group's website. The two organizations also will use each other's communication platforms to share news about projects and events.

Both organizations annually reach large audiences through newsletters, email, blogs, social media and videos.
