Our local group of quilters, the Pine Needler’s, created a really fun log cabin quilt in colors of raspberry, blackberry, and boysenberry to be raffled off at the 2010 Blackberry Jam Festival in Lowell, Oregon. It is now in the hands of Teri (creator of the really great Porta-Board for quilters), who is binding it. We should have it back to the group by our January meeting and will start selling tickets. Tickets (because I know you will want some) sell for $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. All the monies raised go back into our small town of Lowell in places like the schools, parks, and covered bridge. So stay tuned for pictures coming soon!
The Blackberry Jam Festival is a small town festival in Lowell, Oregon. Every year for the last five years we’ve created a quilt to be raffled off to support the festival. All the monies from the sales of tickets goes toward the town of Lowell in some way or another: to support the costs of the free family festival, for the parks, for the schools. So if you like what you see, please support the efforts of the Lowell Pine Needlers who put the quilt together! You can buy tickets through the festival website at: http://www.blackberryjamfestival.com. You don’t need to be present to win! And thank you for your support!
