When life gives you scraps
Sew N' Sews
The quilts that are above will be the ones for our 2019 quilt raffle held on April 11th. The three winners will be able to choose from the quilts shown. The winners will pick in the order that the raffle tickets are chosen. The three quilts that are not chosen will be donated.
Sew N' Sews Quilt Raffle
January kicks off the Quilt Raffle. Tickets will be available at most social events and the BRCA meetings. The tickets sell for $2 each or 3 for $5. Three of the quilts in the picture to the left are going to be raffled off. The three lucky winners will be able to choose a quilt from the six that are shown.
Drawing for the three quilts will be held on April 11th at the (BRCA) Boulder Ridge Community Association meeting.
We are dependent on donations, as all the items are made strictly with new fabrics, batting or yarns. Thanks to Boulder Ridge for the generous donation at Christmas, a donation from AZ Blankets for Kids, individuals, and the raffle. We average over 400 children’s quilts for the year.
All residents are invited to join us in this endeavor. You don’t need to sew to help. Show up at a meeting (actually a work session); there’s something everyone can help with, or just join us for coffee.
Friends are like quilts, they never lose their warmth!
Sew N' Sews meets on the second Friday of the month from 10 AM - 2:30 PM in the Recreation Center. This provides a good opportunity to drop in and see the work done by our group. It is not necessary to have a sewing machine or the ability to sew in order to help them with the blankets and quilts that are completed at our meeting. It is also a good chance to meet some of your neighbors, have a cup of coffee and enjoy some good conversation. “On average, our group donates 40 items each month to AZ Blankets 4 Kids." AZ Blankets 4 Kids then distributes the quilts to Arizona children in crisis. The children are in hospitals or shelters.
