Festival of the Trees

Trees under construction last summer.
Every year we look forward to the Festival of the Trees, held right after Thanksgiving weekend downtown in Liberty Hall. It's a fundraiser for The Shelter, a local organization that provides emergency services for youth and families.

Our small group made a quilt for their auction, which will happen tonight - items go to the winners after the show ends. Georgann Eglinski spearheaded the project - selecting the pattern and colors (with a bit of input from the group). Some people helped stitch blocks, we all helped assemble the quilt. Linda Frost quilted it in a spectacular way.

Stop by to view the entries if you can - it oozes creativity and really puts you in the holiday spirit. It's open daily through Thursday for viewing.

  1. Great choice for a quilt. It looks wonderful and evokes memories of former Christmases!
