This year at Lowell, Oregon’s Blackberry Jam Festival Quilt Show there will be more chances to win! Because of the generosity of the Pine Needle’s, there will be five extra prizes that will be raffled off on July 25th. Normally there is one grand prize, which is a large quilt, but this year each person who buys a ticket will have more chances to win. How great is that? Today I quilted up a table runner that Marlene, one of the Pine Needler members, made. All of these additional pieces were made from extra blocks that we didn’t use in the large quilt. So if you haven’t yet purchased your raffle tickets, please go to the official Blackberry Jam Festival website and click on the “quilt show” link for information. You don’t have to be present to win! And all the money we raise goes back into the Festival to keep it FREE. Any money leftover after that goes to help maintaining the Lowell Bridge (built 1945) and the Lowell parks (work is done by volunteers). This is a small town so your help is appreciated! Buy your tickets now!
