Every year the ladies of the Lowell Pine Needlers make wonderful and unique items to sell during our annual quilt show held in July as silent auction items. Wanting to expand our reach beyond our small town, we decided to open the sale up to the whole wide world (!) and offer these items up for sale as “Buy It Now” items. So check out this years selection and see if there is something that appeals to you, or perhaps that you could give as a gift. If you don’t live in the area, our talented staff of volunteers (uh….that would be Joyce!) will be happy to ship it to you.
As the Blackberry Jam Quilt Show draws nearer, we are busy making our preparations. Each year our talented group of women manages to put a “float” in the parade, set up and break down the quilt show, raffle off our annual raffle quilt, ship out all the items sold for the raffle….well, you get the idea. They are a busy bunch! This years raffle quilt is done…check! Our quilt label is under way….check! Our printed flyers are in process…check!
And if you think that’s impressive, we are already starting work on our raffle quilt for 2017. And all of this so that we can support the great organizations in Lowell that help our community…the Firehall, the Food Pantry, the Library, the Grange, just to name a few…all worthy organizations that day in and day out, work to help those in need.
So if you do buy an auction item, you can feel pretty darn good about your purchase!
