‘Quilts in the Garden with Cate, David and Quilt For a Cause!‘
September 16th offers an enjoyable afternoon of quilts and food and wine and entertainment and a stunning raffle quilt, “Embers of Hope” that will go to a lucky winner by the end of the afternoon. This is all made possible by Cate Johnson and David Schmidtz, hosts of “Quilts in the Garden, 2017.”
A while back, Quilt For a Cause vice president, Colleen Babcock, discussed fundraising ideas with Lynda Luiten, owner of Quilters Market, one of QFaC’s major sponsors. Lynda suggested that Colleen talk with Cate. Cate, a lecturer in experimental economics at the University of Arizona and a quilter, along with her husband, David, a UA professor of philosophy, offered their lovely home and garden. “Quilts in the Garden” was born! Come join us for “Quilts in the Garden 2017.”
More than a dozen handmade quilts will be displayed in Cate and David’s home with several dozen more available for viewing on racks. All quilts are for sale with funds benefiting Quilt For a Cause. Take a look at our Gallery (click on the ribbon at the top of this page) for a preview of the quilts. Two recent donations are Cate’s quilts that demonstrate her impeccable color and design sense. These quilts join the many works of art that handmade quilts are and form the basis of Quilt For a Cause’s fundraising efforts in support of finding a cure for and treating women with breast or gynecologic cancers.
Tickets are $30 each and include a complimentary raffle ticket. Contact Colleen Babcock at email@example.com or call 520 405-5478 to purchase tickets or for more information.Event and raffle tickets are available below on this webpage. The winner need not be present to win. Delivery of “Embers of Hope” will be arranged as necessary.
We thank Cate and David for generously opening their home and their hearts to Quilt For a Cause and our mission. Thanks, also, to Lynda Luiten of Quilters Market and the Tucson Quilters Guild whose members provide so many of the donated quilts and the volunteers who help QFaC.
We hope to see you at “Quilts in the Garden” September 16, 2017, 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Cate and David’s, contact Colleen for ticket and address information firstname.lastname@example.org or call 520 405-5478 . Tickets are available at the door, also.
