This year Cascade is raffling off two vintage Singer sewing machines – a 1947 Featherweight 221 and a 301. Both are in full working order and have carrying cases. Machines in this condition sell for several hundred dollars.
Purchase tickets from Cascade members or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are priced at $1 each and 6 for $5. You can specify which machine you’re interested in.
More details are on the Vintage Sewing Machine Raffle page and on the guild’s Pinterest board. Just click on Follow Me On Pinterest to the left. Winners will be drawn on April 6, 2013, at the guild’s quilt show.
We will start preparing for the September Quilt Show at our June meeting with a fun make-it program. July is our Annual Membership Get Together. This year we will be at Spaghetti Warehouse in downtown Akron, on July 21 at 6 PM. We are happy to see new members, so plan to come. August will feature a Members-only workshop!
Every year, Cascade has a raffle quilt for a fund raiser. Part of the funds help with the activities of the Guild, and part of the proceeds are donated to a local charity. This year, our member Debbie Shives, has donated a gorgeous hand applique quilt, called Times Remembered, from a pattern by Pat Sloan. Members will be selling raffle tickets for $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. If you are interested in purchasing tickets, contact the website. Tickets will also be available at the Quilt Show in September.
