Q U I L T R A F F L E
And the winner is........DONNA SNOW
The winning ticket was drawn by David Putnam on October 28 following a most interesting program about local home knitters, how they were unknowingly breaking the law, and how they were instrumental in changing an old labor law in order to keep their job.This successful fundraiser for the Society would not have been possible without the talents of Stowe quilter Barb Scribner, donations of fabric from Stowe Fabric & Yarn, and machine quilting by former Stowe resident Anne Harmon of Harmony Quilts. Thank you all!
Thank you, too, to everyone who purchased tickets in support of this fundraiser.
And speaking of thank yous......
Our program on October 28th about Knitters Changing an Old Labor Law was a big success thanks to panelists David Putnum (owner of Stowe Woolens), Tom Evslin (state Dept. of Transportation), and John and Millie Merrill (owners of Turtle Fur). They presented a replay of a CBS story about this issue which really set the stage for their discussion and audience participation.
Thank you to all!
