Christmas in July Quilt Raffle

Thimbleweeders!  Here comes our Christmas in July Quilt Raffle.  Each year during the 2 meetings in July we ask that you bring non-perishable food items for StoreHouse West.  For every item that you bring, you receive a ticket for a chance to win a wonderful quilt.  This raffle is only open to Thimbleweed members and you only have two meetings to bring food and get tickets.  There will be a truck or car parked out front at Sabano Grande for the July meetings.  Please bring your food items in grocery bags or boxes, so we can just load them into the vehicle.  

This year we have a beautiful 12 Days of Christmas quilt to raffle off.  It's 46" x 57", so it's a great size to use as a wall hanging or lap quilt.  Do you need a Christmas quilt for someone on your gift list?  Here's a good opportunity to save yourself some sewing and donate to a great cause all at once.  Special thanks to Kathy Sublett who donated the fabric for the top and pieced it, Barbara Striegel who donated the backing and binding material, Diane Bourg who quilted it, and the many folks who sewed on the binding while they manned the Thimbleweed booth during Fiber Arts Fiesta.

I hope we can collect even more food to donate this year and the need seems to continue to grow.  Thanks for all your help and support.
