QUILT FUND RAISER " GREAT SUCCESS"
The winner of "Arizona Spring" fund raising
quilt was Betty Ek of Wickenburg. Betty is a long time
member of the Vulture Peak Patchers Quilt Guild in Wickenburg and was
present for the drawing. When her name was drawn, she was standing just a
few feet from the quilt and for a time appeared to stop breathing as she
repeated, "Oh, my--oh, my--" until someone said, "Breathe, Betty!" Needless
to say, the quilt will be valued and best of all will remain here in
Wickenburg where it was 'born.'
The two day quilt show was a huge success
and raised over $6,000 for the Congress Senior Center. Ticket sales for the
quilt brought in over $3,000 of that total and we thank all of you who
participated in the ticket sales and attending the annual Quilt Show. The
Vulture Peak Patchers meet the first and third Thursday of the month at St
Albans Church in Wickenburg and during the summer months (June to
September) we meet at North Ranch .
Meeting times are usually 10 am to noon except when we have a 'traveling
teacher' or a special program and then we meet at 9 am. We welcome all
quilters in the area and currently have a membership of over 60 friendly
quilters. Please join us.
