CAROLINA LILY RAFFLE QUILT
PQG Members, with just under a month before we draw a winner of our antique Carolina Lily raffle quilt we would like to ask you to give that extra push to sell as many raffle tickets as possible. We have recently sold tickets at JoAnn Fabrics and Calla Lily Quilt Shop. We have brought the quilt to other local guild meetings. We will be selling tickets at Studio Stitch Quilt Shop on Saturday, June 29th.
*** Please remember that the money raised from the sale of these tickets is the way we pay for our speakers, meeting space rental, Community Outreach supplies, etc.
More information and photos of our raffle quilt can be found on the "Raffle Quilt" page (click on the tab above).
*** If you have sold raffle ticket stubs. please be sure to turn them in at the July meeting. If you are not able to attend our July picnic, please make arrangements to send your ticket stubs with another member so they can be included in the drawing. Thank you!
We are preparing for our 2020 quilt show next Spring. We would love for all guild members to volunteer. Your help will make our show a success. Working with your fellow guild members is a fun and rewarding experience.
If you are interested in volunteering please contact Pat O'Rork, Betty Green or Mary Jo Wimberly.
