Last year (1999) we raised over $600.00 for the local chapter of the American Cancer Society through the auction of miniature quilts. Thanks to all who have supported this worthy cause in the past. We look forward to seeing you at this year's event!
Why Miniatures? Many of us are ecstatic when we finally finish a quilt. However the idea of completing a large quilt for charity is quite daunting. We decided to scale down our ambitions to a miniature size. This endeavor makes every one feel good: Our members actually finish a project, bidders have a wide selection of wonderful quilts to choose from, and the local American Cancer Society chapter benefits from the auction proceeds. We are all planning our next "do-able" project!
