Quilt Celebration XII
100 Glendale Road, Scarsdale, NY
$8 Adults, $1 for children under 12
Village Squares Quilters is holding their 12th quilt show, Quilt Celebration XII, on Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11, 2012 at the Greenville Elementary School, Edgemont Union School District, 100 Glendale Road, Scarsdale, New York from 10am to 4pm.
The show will include 100+ quilts. Members and invited guests display the versatility and beauty of their work. Raffle prizes include a raffle quilt, Village Garden, pieced and hand quilted by VSQ members. There is also a sales boutique, vendors, and a Quilters’ Café. Demonstrations by vendors will enable new and experienced quilters to expand and enhance their next quilts.
The local charity chosen this year as beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds from the raffle quilt is Westchester Coalition for Hungry and Homeless, dedicated to feeding the hungry (5,000,000 meals served last year!), and providing housing assistance, including eviction prevention, and placement in the many shelters all throughout Westchester County.
Remaining proceeds from the raffle are used to support the guild’s ongoing outreach programs, such as Cuddle Quilts, which donates baby quilts made by members to needy babies and children in local facilities, Bedford Babies, a prison outreach program, where a group of members regularly visit Bedford Hills Correctional Facility to teach quilting to inmates with babies, and Friendship Quilts, where members contribute lap quilts to adults in hospices and nursing homes.
