The Shady Ladies Quilting Group is selling tickets for a chance to win a unique quilt made by the entire group. Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Save the Warmth and two food kitchens.
“Everything we make on the sale of tickets goes to help needy residents of Haywood County stay warm in the winter and get a good meal,” said Jane Bird, a member of The Shady Ladies.
The 2012 quilt “Thinking Outside the Basket” is a colorful queen-sized quilt composed of scrappy basket blocks. The quilt will be auctioned June 1 through June 3 during the annual exhibition of quilt art by the Shady Ladies at Lake Logan Episcopal Center in Haywood County. They will exhibit 100 of their newest quilts ranging from artistic wall hangings to traditional bed quilts.
The show also includes a boutique stocked with small quilts and quilt-related items for people interested in more than just viewing quilts. The show will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 1 and June 2 and from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. The $3 admission charge will be donated to Lake Logan’s Summer Camp Program. 828.456.8885.
