Quilt Show

Help needed for white elephant

Posted on Updated on

Ladies, I need your help.  Some of us attended an estate sale a couple of weeks ago at a home where a woman was a quilter and had lots of fabric.  She moved to an assisted care facility.  The family has hired a dumpster to clean out the home to prepare the house for selling.  They will allow our guild to go in and take the rest of the fabric for free, however, we need to do this on Wednesday, July 24th at 9 am.  I know it is very short notice, but if you are able to help fill trash bags and bring them out to Angie’s car or my truck please email me at liz@swanquilting.com.  Be advised that we will be cleaning out 3 floors of this home and everything is in disarray.  It will be hot, dirty work but will give a real boost to our white elephant room this year.  Please consider helping out.  I look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you!

  2. Please make a small item for the Silent Auction. All of the Silent Auction revenue will be donated to Pettengill House. This charity provides food for the hungry in our community.
  3. Please bring fat quarters, American Girl outfits and lottery tickets to the meeting so that we can prepare those items for the penny raffle.
  4. White Elephant items and completed raffle baskets will be accepted at the meeting on the 21st and on the morning of Thursday the 28th during setup.
