34th Annual Quilt Walk in West Branch to Benefit Hospice of Helping Hands
For the last 33 years, West Branch has been highlighting the time-honored community tradition and history of quilting. Those who enjoy seeing this history and art, along with area quilters, seamstresses, and would-be quilters, are among the many who attend this special community event each year. The Annual Quilt Walk, which grows and improves every year, also benefits your local non-profit Hospice of Helping Hands, another long-standing community asset that has been serving patients and their families in the area since 1979.
This 34th year is no exception…and it all begins on Thursday, October 4 and runs through Saturday, October 6. Over 200 quilts will be on display throughout the town, along with quilting demonstrations, vendors, door prizes, a quilt raffle, a Sidewalk “Sewing Room” Sale and the Hugs For Hospice Boutique…..something for almost everyone.
Participants start their “Walk” by picking up their “Passport Ticket Book”, for only a $5 donation, at 205 Craft Emporium, 205 Houghton Avenue, 4th Street Gallery on N. 4th Street, or Hospice of Helping Hands at 322 W. Houghton. With their passport ticket book purchase, they can relax and meander around the various locations at their convenience each day or all three days. The event runs from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday.
New this year, with their Passport Ticket Book purchase, they will receive a special ticket to put into the drawing for a special Passport Prize Quilt at the Hospice of Helping Hands office, too!
Quilt Raffle Tickets for “The Reel Deal”, a 65” x 75” quilt, are on sale now for a steal at only three for $5 at 205 Craft Emporium – 205 W. Houghton Avenue, and Hospice of Helping Hands (322 W. Houghton Avenue (9 a – 4 p Monday-Friday). Raffle tickets will also be on sale at various locations around the area. The drawing will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, and supporters need not be present to win this beautiful quilt. All proceeds will be donated to our local non-profit Hospice of Helping Hands, Inc.
