Thank you to everyone who made a quilt for us. It was great to have some community quilts to line the entrance and tea hall at the show. We received lots of positive feedback on them. One delighted mom brought her Christmas baby and the quilt she received and wanted to thank the person who made it. I said I couldn’t tell who had made it but we were all glad she felt so strongly about thanking us. We are now working on our next collection so please if you are looking for a summer project pick up a quilt kit from the Community quilt table. I also have batting and if you need a piece please contact me with a size either by phone or email to email@example.com and I will bring it to the meeting.
Two ladies on the North Shore won our 2016 Raffle Quilts.
Our first winner is Maebritte Jeffels, who is 95 years young, living at Evergreen House and is still as bright as a new penny. She was very happy with her new quilt and informed us, she has never won anything like this before. Maebritte bought her ticket, when we were selling tickets at Lions Gate Hospital and wanted to support our Community Quilts program. She sees the quilts donated by our Guild and the joy they bring to the residents at Evergreen House.
The second winner is Katherine Bennett, who lives in Lynn Valley. Katherine bought her ticket from Katherine Gillis of our Guild and had not viewed the quilts prior to winning. She was very pleased when Suzanne delivered the white modern quilt to her home, and loved the back as much as the front.
Both, very pleased ladies, are pictured with their winning quilts!
Raffle tickets sales raised over $3,000.00 (net) for the Community Quilts programs. A BIG thank you to all the Guild members who helped to sell raffle tickets to their friends and family. Guild member tickets sales represented 54% of total tickets sold.
The Raffle Quilt Committee, of Betty Clarke, Suzanne Patchell, Norine McCaffrey and myself, are now retiring. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on this Committee for the past four years and our best wishes go out to the next group.

Thank you to everyone working on a quilt for us. We will be thanking our hard working committee at the May meeting and showing all newly received quilts for distribution by the summer. Quilts shown last month have gone to Lionsgate hospital to brighten up the exercise room! Evergreen Care Center and Kiwanis care Center. We will also be hanging a few at the quilt show so please keep them coming.
Hope you are doing well in selling Raffle Quilt tickets and promoting our upcoming Show!
Again in April, we will have books of raffle tickets for Guild member to buy, for advance sales to your family and friends.
Tickets will be sold in books of 15 tickets, at a cost of $25.00. The ticket price is 3 tickets for $5.00. So that means you only have to sell your book of 15 tickets to 5 individuals (3 tickets for $5.00) and your book is complete!
As done in previous years, the member buys the book of tickets up front for $25.00, sells the tickets (now this money is yours) and returns the stubs for the draw. We will keep track of the members name and the ticket books.
Please return your completed book of stubs to the Raffle Quilt Committee at our monthly meetings. Please ensure all stubs are returned to the Raffle Quilt Committee for the draw, by the end of show to ensure all tickets are entered into the draw on June 11.
In May and/or June, we will be selling Raffle tickets at Lion’s Gate Hospital. We are looking for some Guild members to assist us. Please sign up at the Raffle Quilt table if you can help, or e-mail one of us personally!
Remember, all proceeds from the sale of the Raffle tickets goes to our Community Quilts Program.
So remember to bring either some cash or personal cheque to purchase your raffle tickets!! Thanking you in advance.
