2019 DHQ Raffle Quilt  Update

Thank you to everyone for your hard work and completing the raffle quilt top, and for contributing stitches to the quilting as it moves from quilter to quilter. We are still in need of hand quilting volunteers. Won’t you take the quilt and add some loving stitches to it? Every little bit helps, and you can proudly say you helped make the quilt! Contact Linda Dearing.

We have been distributing packets of raffle tickets for each member, we appreciate your taking the time to offer chances on this beautiful quilt to your friends and family. A small change this year is that the price on the raffle tickets will be two dollars each, or a book of three for five dollars. Since most people usually purchased a book, this just makes for a little less handwriting on the tickets.

The 2019 show theme is a quote from Eleanor Roosevelt used with permission of the Eleanor Roosevelt Foundation. “The Way to Begin is to Begin”.

Kathleen Basso has embraced the role of vendor chairman for the 2019 show. We will see some old friends as well as a few new additions.

We will also have a new caterer. The caterer has researched dishes preferred by Eleanor Roosevelt and added a dish based on her hospitality. I love the thoughtful attention to detail that he is demonstrating.

Looking forward to a great show – October 12 & 13, 2019.

I hope you will reserve these dates.
