A Neat Idea For A Fundraiser

Early in 1987, Donna Sheaffer, our club treasurer, suggested
making a ‘Name Quilt’ as a fundraiser. People at the 1987
show paid 25 cents per name to have it placed on the quilt. During
the coming year Donna spent hundreds of hours doing all the
embroidery work. Once the embroidery work was completed, Marie
Amspacher, a friend of the club, finished it off with the
quilting.

This one-of-a-kind quilt displays the club logo in the center,
with the names radiating out to the sides. At the 1988 show, the
quilt was auctioned off to the highest bidder-James Measly of Glen
Rock, Pennsylvania. Knowing that the quilt has grown in value, Jim
and his wife Marion have now returned it to the club, to be
auctioned off at the 1992 show. The auction will take place Sunday
afternoon, July 19.

This quilt is definitely a collector’s item. There will
never be another one like it. For more information, call Donna
Sheaffer (215) 683-3607, after 7:00 p.m.
