Each year the Rogue Valley Piecemakers creates an Opportunity Quilt and offers an "Opportunity" to win it by raffle. Although, due to the Covid pandemic we were unable to offer an Opportunity Quilt the last two years. We are so happy to start the process again to benefit our chosen non-profit organizations.
This quilt will be raffled and the net proceeds from the raffle will be split between the Women’s Crisis Support Center and Wildlife Images Rehabilitation and Education Center. The Women's Crisis Support Team (WCST) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the cycle of domestic violence and sexual assault in Josephine County through intervention, prevention, and safe shelter. Wildlife Images Rehabilitation and Education Center is a non-profit corporation providing care and treatment of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife. They also provide educational programs on wildlife, conservation, and the environment to schools, organizations, and the public.
Our Opportunity Quilt raffle is one of the many ways that we give back to our community. The raffle drawing will be held at the 2023 Quilt Show.
Sharon Garland is our new Quilt Mom. Thanks Sharon! She organizes ticket sales and locations where the Opportunity Quilt is to be displayed at a variety of venues (festivals, shops, other quilt meetings, etc.).
Tickets are currently on sale $1 each or 6 for $5, or 30 for $20. Contact any of our guild members, or anywhere the quilt is shown to purchase tickets. The winning ticket to be drawn at our 2023 Quilt Show on May 13th, 2023 at 2 pm. Need not be present to win.
