Quilt Show HIghlighted Charity Announced March, 2023
The quilt show highlighted charity will be Another Chance for Animals. Founded in 2010 as a 501(c)(3) organization Another Chance for Animals is an all-volunteer animal rescue organization that originally formed to work with Evansville Animal Care and Control. They place animals in foster homes, provide veterinary care, and find these animals their forever homes. They have branched out in recent years to work with other rescuers and the community-at-large. ACA also educates the community in the importance of responsible pet ownership the value of rescuing animals, and how individuals can help.
Raintree Guild members will be making some fabric pet beds to sell and fleece blankets with tied edges. These will be sold through their existing outlets as well as at an auction planned for later this year. And, of course, ACA will have a booth at our Quilt Show where they will introduce their organization to visitors.
Raintree's 2023 raffle quilt accepted to be shown at Paducah in the 2023 AQS Quilt Show in April. Donna Fischer and Robynn VanHorn recently delivered it to Paducah for judging and to be exhibited in the show. You can see the raffle quilt using the button above, or an enlarged portion of it to the right.
While they were in Paducah, Donna and Robynn also delivered a quilt Raintree has donated to the National Quilt Museum. To the right is a photo of the quilt we donated to the museum. It will be auctioned or sold in the museum shop to support the museum collection and programs.
