Your Chance to Win the Opportunity Quilt 2018

Each year the Pebblecreek Quilters organization decides on a quilt pattern, fabric,  and persons to piece and custom quilt the Opportunity Quilt. The winning raffle ticket is drawn in December at the Holiday Luncheon.

The quilt this year (shown in the picture) was made by Jean Fry and quilted by Cindy Santaro.  It is a Dresden Plate pattern using Kaffe Fawcett fabrics which are modern designed fabrics and are displayed on a white background.  Cindy completed the longarm quilting in the Diamondback Room (fiber arts).  The quilt was revealed last December and will be given away this December.

All proceeds are used to purchase batting and supplies for the many community service projects such as quilts for birth through adulthood, clothes protectors for residents in care facilities, dog beds for veterans and their service dogs, bags for charities and other expressed needs by designated organizations in the West Valley.  These organizations include:  New Life Center, PC Pet Companions, NLC’s Christmas Shop, Hospice of the Valley, Southwest FAC/Natalie’s House, Abrazo Hospital/Bosom Buddies.

The cost for raffle tickets for the Opportunity Quilt are: 6 for $5, 12 tickets for $10, 18 tickets for $15 or 24 tickets for $20.  Please check for a table selling tickets with a display of the quilt at fall events.  Support your PC Quilters and the many projects for others in the West Valley.  The last several years, the quilt has been won by a PC resident which is due to their strong support in buying tickets.

Veterans are Recognized with a Red White and Blue Quilt

Last year began a tradition of the PC Quilters recognizing our PC Veterans on Veterans Day.  This year the event will be at 2 pm in the  Renaissance  Theater, Tuscany Falls on Sunday November 11, 2018.

Quilt members use donated fabric and their own to create red white and blue themed quilts to be given to PC residents that are veterans.  At the November 2017 program,  25 veterans were recognized and honored.  This year 20 veterans will be honored.  A waiting list for next year has begun.  It is the members’ way of recognizing those that have sacrificed and served for our democracy. 

If you are a resident of Pebblecreek, are a veteran and would like to receive a patriotic quilt, please contact:  Liz Gray  623-536-6004. To see the quilts that will be given to the veterans, please stop by the Creative Arts Center to view the quilts in the display windows during the month of
