(click on photos to enlarge)

The guild's raffle quilt was revealed at the November 2019 guild meeting, and we're now in the process of selling tickets. Members are encouraged to get a few books of tickets to sell from raffle quilt ticket chair Ellen M. at guild meetings or at other arranged times. Her contact info can be found on the guild's roster, or you can use the "contact us" form on this blog. The cost is $1/ticket or $5/6 tickets. The drawing will be held at the October 19, 2020 MLQG meeting.

Proceeds from the raffle ticket sales go toward guild programs and activities, so the more we sell, the more we can do in the upcoming years! When selling tickets, feel free to use these photos to show how gorgeous the quilt is.

As we've said before, a big THANK YOU goes to all MLQG members who helped make this quilt a reality. MLQG Rocks!
