The Chatham Woman’s Club is selling raffle tickets for a handmade quilt named Scenes of Chatham. The proceeds of the raffle will benefit local charities and scholarships for local young people.
Twenty five members of the club, led by Clara Slockbower, volunteered to create this lovely quilt. It is truly a work of art. Work on the quilt began in August 2006 and was completed in May 2008. The queen-size quilt is divided into 24 squares, each depicting a different scene around Chatham. The scenes include Sailboats on Pleasant Bay and Stage Harbor, the Band Shell, Chatham Light, Seals at Lighthouse Beach and the Windmill on Shore Road.
Each quilter was encouraged to provide her own interest and talent to each particular square.
The making of this quilt provided a sense of community, friendship and happiness within each square.
In addition to purchasing raffle tickets at $3 per ticket or $10 for 4 tickets for the quilt, note cards of the quilt will be available for sale for $10 per set. Tickets are available at East Wind Silver Company, Island Pursuits, Oasis Hair Salon and Day Spa and Puritan or by calling Rose Marie McLoughlin at 508-945-5965.
Last chance to purchase tickets is November 12th.
The drawing will be held on November 13th, 2008 – the winner need not be present to win.
