Irish Chain quilts raffled

Local hand-made quilts were raffled off by the Moody Quilters of Christina Lake.

A raffle for two quilts with the traditional Irish chain pattern was held on Oct. 18.

It happened!  On Oct. 18, the draw you’ve all been waiting for.

Draws were held for two fabulous quilts in the traditional Irish Chain pattern, the beautiful handiwork of Lorae Gaytmenn and Olga Strukoff of Moody Quilters of Christina Lake.

The winners of the quilts are Susan Portz of Rossland and Kevin Maffioli of Grand Forks.   Seen here receiving a cheque for $2,750 for the maintenance of Christina Lake Community Association Treasurer Norm Grenier and Guild President Pat Walker.

In thanking the guild, Norm referred to the value of the hall as the center of community life since 1947. There is a real need for participation of whole community in supporting it at a time of rising costs.

Because the association is a registered charity, people can donate and receive tax-deductible receipts.  In closing he invited everyone present to join him in celebrating New Year’s Eve with him at the hall.

Moody Quilter continues to be an active group in the community, meeting every Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. at Moody Creek Hall to quilt, to socialize, to learn and to plan events.

New members or drop-in visitors are always welcome.  Under consideration now is the running of a 12-week beginner’s course entitled Quilting for a Lifetime in the New Year.

If you wish information about this please call Gayle Hunt at 250-447-6145.
