Creekside Quilting Community Outreach May 21st-July 31st
ALS is a devastating disease that leaves a person's body paralyzed while their mind and spirit are alert and active. By participating in the Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge you help raise awareness about ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), bring warmth and hope to the lives of ALS patients, and also help raise much needed funds for research for a treatment and a cure.
Donated quilts are given to ALS patients or used to raise research money for ALS by being photographed, displayed, auctioned or raffled. In addition to contributing you quilt to a wonderful cause -- ALL donated quilts are eligible to win exciting and wonderful prizes.
The Hopes & Dreams Quilt Challenge is non-judged and all donated quilts are entered into general prize drawings. There are also incredible prize packages for winners in seven (7) different categories. We will have the entry forms in the store to fill out at the time of drop off.... Minimum quilt size 35"x 44" or larger. Lap or bed quilts of all sizes are welcomed. We encourage the addition of a 4" removable or hidden sleeve on the backside of the quilting for displaying. Please note the size of your finished quilt on the Entry Form. Tied quilts are welcomed, as are knit or crochet blankets. Handcrafted items of all types gratefully accepted.
Bring any quilt(s) to the store, you would like to donate to this cause, by July 31st, and Creekside Quilting will mail all quilts to the challenge on August 1st. It doesn't have to be a new quilt, go to your UFO's and finish one or two up and bring to the store. To mail in your own quilt, click HERE for an entry form and mailing instructions
