Quilters Extraordinaire Marlene and Leah at the Ferndale Haggen

We are deeply grateful for the amazing team of women who decided to use their incredible quilting talents to support the mission of Team Julia! Earlier this year this group, led by Noni Bowhay Ahlberg and Sheri Willson with input from all members, designed two beautiful quilts: ‘Julia’s Autumn Splendor’ and ‘Julia’s Winter Wonder.’ And now these two quilts are being raffled with all proceeds donated to Team Julia. We are amazed at the talent and generosity of this incredible team!

Many thanks to Noni Bowhay Ahlberg, Sheri Willson,  Nita May, Leah Rowler, Barb Stromme, Leona Jager, Debbie Miller, Carol Smith, Karen Nieuwendorp, Marlene Robinsette, and Bobbi Fisher for your support. Together we are making a difference in the fight against cancer!

If you live in the greater Bellingham area and would like to purchase a raffle ticket for $1.00, please see the dates that remain in our display schedule. We are grateful to our local Haggen Markets and for Everson Drug for their hospitality in hosting these events. And if you can’t make it on any of the dates below, please plan to be our guest at the Quilting for Team Julia Luncheon at The Firs on Monday, Novemeber 25 from noon to 2:00 when we plan to do the drawing (you don’t need to be present to win).
