Raffle Tickets for “Jo’s Baltimore Album”

PTQG Raffle Quilt 2020 “Jo’s Baltimore Album is a beautiful queen sized (96” X 97”) quilt that is hand quilted and hand appliqued by Jo Bunker, a long time Pine Tree Quilt Guild member and a quilter extraordinaire. The quilt features beautiful baskets of gorgeous flowers. The intricate detailing found throughout the quilt is not something that can truly be seen in one viewing. This is a beautiful example of traditional quilting. The quilt is machine washable. 

It’s that time of year again! Show your support for our organization, Pine Tree Quilters Guild! Buy a ticket book or two for six chances for yourself or a friend.

SILENT AUCTION 

Maine Quilts is proud to support the Maine Cancer Foundation. Cancer rates in Maine are significantly higher than the national average and the worst in New England. Cancer is the leading cause of death in Maine. The Maine Cancer foundation offers grants to programs which aim to reduce cancer incidence and mortality in the State of Maine. We have all been touched by cancer in one way or another. Supporting this program is a great way to support organizations that are doing some difficult and challenging work. Once again, there will be several opportunities for you to support this important organization. We will be having another silent auction. Last years’ auction contained a lot of very special items. If you missed it, I can tell you that you won’t want to miss it again. Please consider donating something you created or make a donation of tickets or a gift certificate or anything else that you know someone else would love. We would appreciate it if the donated items had a minimum value of $25.00. More information will be coming out in the next few months but now is the time to think of what you would like to donate. Secondly, please come to the auction and buy some tickets. You never know what you might win!! 

Maine Cancer Foundation (MCF) is dedicated to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine. 100% of the funds we raise are invested back into our communities to benefit the people of Maine. 

MCF leads a statewide endeavor to foster and grow the most promising and effective cancer-fighting efforts available to the people of Maine through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building communities to benefit the people of Maine.
