We have already received several quilt blocks for our "Make Me Beautiful"
challenge contest and raffle benefiting the Verde Valley Sanctuary
(women's shelter). Response has been so good that we might even get enough to make two quilts. Completed blocks are on display; voting begins June 1st
and runs through July 31st
. We are extending the date to submit blocks through June, so the sooner you get yours in, the more opportunity you have for lots of votes. Stop by the shop and purchase any one of three fat-eighth fabrics ($1.00 each, cash only). Make a 9 1/2 x 9 1/2
finished block (twenty percent of the block must be comprised of the fat-eighth you bought). To see some of the blocks submitted check out our May/June Newsletter
The "Viewer's Choice"
and runners-up will be announced on Wednesday, August 3, 2016
. If your block is the "Viewers Choice, you will win a $50 gift certificate
to be used at the store. Runners-up will receive gift certificates from Sedona's Twice Nice Thrift Shop. After the voting is done, raffle tickets will be sold for the finished quilt(s) with all proceeds going to the Verde Valley Sanctuary.
The winner will be announced at our Holiday Open House
on Saturday, December 3, 2016.
