Buy a ticket to win a quilt

Click on image for larger view
The Wyoming State Quilt Guild (WSQG) is selling tickets for a chance to win the quilt, "Scottie's Victory"  (image), pieced and quilted by Jan Barnett of Shell, WY. The pattern was taken from the Eleanor Burns book, Victory Quilts. Jan added her own special touches.

Each year an Opportunity Quilt is made and raffled to raise funds for the organization. WSQG donates quilting books to each Wyoming county library. It also supports educational activities through Kids' Camp, which are held throughout the state. Young people ages 8-12 construct a quilt with WSOG providing teachers and partial funding for supplies.

Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. Please direct inquiries to Elaine Decker, 307-347-6382, for info on a WSQG member who may be selling tickets in your town or area.

Also, quilters will be gathering in Powell, July 14-17 for Quilt Wyoming's "Simple Pleasures" festival.
