The Piecemakers Quilt Club of Forks’ main goal is to educate and encourage people to start quilting. In order to accomplish this goal the group has one quilt raffle each year that coincides with the Fabric of the Forest Quilt Show and classes. The money raised covers the cost of the show and pays to hire teachers to come to Forks.

The quilt club members who made this years quilt are Megan Bergstein (Port Townsend), Flo DeVoney (Port Angeles), Patty Holden (Carlsborg), Linda Holt (Sequim) and Joan Komendant (Sequim). The quilt was quilted by Esther Alward (Port Angeles). The quilt is 52 inches and was designed by Edyta Sitar.

The quilt is on display at Chinook Pharmacy and tickets, $1 each, also are available at Chinook.  The drawing for the quilt will be at 4 p.m. on April 27 at the Forks High School auxiliary gym. There also will be a drawing for a signed copy of the book “Dream Again” by Dennis McGregor, the events featured artist, which was donated Audrey Grafstrom.There is no purchase necessary to enter to win the book, those interested can enter at the club’s vendor table.
