On Tuesday evening (July 10th) an auction benefitting the SOQS was held at the Sisters Art Works (SAW) building. It was a wonderful gathering and impressive turnout to benefit the Quilt Show. Many thanks go out to Ann, Tammy and Joyce as well as the entire Quilt Show board.
The 18 month calendar, Men Behind the Quilts, which is now available for sale, was a wonderfully unique idea that had our town buzzing with anticipation. Each month features a local "hunk" behind a quilt. These quilts were donated to the SOQS to be auctioned at this fundraising event. We are pleased to announce that so far we have raised $15,000 in quilt sales and another $5,000 in tickets, raffle and calendar sales!!
The autograph table had a constant line of admirers. (That's Mr. August)
The fun in all of this lies in the fact that our models are the local "Sisters Athletic Club owner", fabulous "Trainer and Massage Therapist- Mr. December" and our very own "Greenridge Physical Therapist- Mr. October". All of these men are quite modest and humble...which makes it even more fun to harass them!
It's Chuck, Bill and Jack...enjoying the attentive crowd.
When all is said and done, we just want to thank everyone for supporting this endeavor and the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show. It is not possible to produce an event of this size without continued support from all of you!
