Ribbons hits the road

Each year, generous volunteers handcraft a one-of-a-kind quilt for the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. Created by an incredibly talented duo, Jennie Blume and Paula Reuille, the 2013 offering is a beautiful representation of our ongoing commitment to the cause, fashioned after Ribbons. The Foundation’s Ribbons Quilt will be on tour in Vera Bradley Stores across […]
