Fight Cancer with a Silent Auction and Sale

Fight Cancer with a Sale

Every even year the River Heritage Quilt Guild has a Quilt Show. As part of that show, we raise money to fight breast cancer.   One of our former presidents lost her battle to breast cancer and several other members are survivors.  We raise money two ways:

100% of the money goes to support breast cancer research and education.
  • Who makes quilts: You do, the members of the guild or anyone who wants to participate.
  • When needed: The shows are in even years. You can bring your mini quilt or other small sewn item to any guild meeting. If Linda is not at the meeting, give them to Joan Meyer or Tracy Vaughan.
  • All items should be new and handmade, using fabric (and possibly batting) alone. We still
    want the item to be small, but now you may make things such as aprons and pillowcases. Minis are still welcome.
  • Please always include your name. Your friends and relatives would enjoy buying something you made. I know I like knowing who made the items I�ve bought.
  • If you have any questions, please contact Linda Tansil. 
  •  Need ideas: Have you ever started a class and stopped with one block -- a lot of lovely minis were based on such orphans.

    Try out a new technique without being committed to finding house room for it

    Use a color you've never used before -- see what you come up with


  • What if I cannot make one? Come to the next show and bid!! If you have questions, contact Linda Tansil email the webmaster.
