Quilt drawing raises money for charity
Roberta Schell of Kingston was the winner of the 2013 Classics Comfort Quilt, which was hand-pieced and quilted by Classics Club members, in a drawing held during the Annual Classics Club Holiday Party at Resource Bank in DeKalb.
Open Door Rehabilitation Center of Sandwich received $1,225 in proceeds from the ticket sales.
“The hard-working Classics Club quilters are to thank for the quilt donation,” Resource Bank Classics Adviser Sandi Frost said in a news release. “Every year they give their precious time and effort to make a fantastic quilt, and every year I am amazed at how wonderful the quilt turns out.”
Work will begin on the 2014 quilt very soon. Resource Bank’s Classics Club coordinates the annual project, which begins in February with a group lesson in square building. Each year a local charity is selected to receive the quilt.
The Resource Bank Classics Club is an opportunity for people 55 and older to meet people and participate in parties, trips, and outings. For more information, call 815-756-6321.
