This year’s raffle quilt

Every year we raffle off a quilt that we made in order to raise money for the Historical Village. This year’s is a beauty but than I probably always think that. But no – truly – this year’s is amazing. Not just the colors but th2016 quilte amount of stitching.  We like taking it out from the cupboard to show visitors. Even though we made it, we still marvel at the quality and quantity of the work.  So now we are selling raffle tickets for this quilt and next summer at the Lincoln County Fair someone will win it.  It could be you. Perhaps it seems too early in the game to be buying raffle tickets though for something that you might not own until next summer but think of it as an installment plan. If every month between now and late August you bought ten tickets, you would have one hundred chances to win.  One hundred!  And you wouldn’t hardly think about the money because its just $10/month and really that’s about three of those fancy coffee drinks.  Wouldn’t you rather be snuggled up beneath this wondrous quilt than buzzed out on caffeine?

About tvh56

I mostly live in Eureka, Montana and write two blogs. One is for the Tobacco Valley Board of History, a group composed of the most remarkable older women who quilt weekly to raise funds to maintain the Historical Village. I had to capture their stories with words and photos. And when I began a traveling bookstore as a small business, well, it only made sense to write about that too.

    I would love to share this with my quilt guild, I’m sure some of them would like to buy raffle tickets, I know I do! How can we go about buying them long distance?

      Let me know how many. You can send a check for the amount ($1/for one) and then I can send you the raffle stubs, I guess you would need to send me the names…for example Jane wants 5 and Susan wants ten. Our address is on the website. Thanks!
