Another Beautiful Quilt to Giveaway to a Local Veteran

Valerie Lamont and Judy Lockner, have once again outdone themselves. The latest quilted creation to be raffled off to a local veteran is on display at Tri County Economic Development District (TEDD). As the ladies were looking for new patterns and ideas Lockner came across a pattern called “Stars and Stripes” and immediately liked it because it was different and looked fun to sew.

Lockner and Lamont’s desire to show their appreciation for the sacrifice made by our veteran’s continues. They have made two quilts already (one at the end of last year and one this spring) which found homes with two local veterans who are very active in their communities. The first going to Kathy Callan of Colville, and the last one being awarded to Pete Thompson of Chewelah. This time around we are excited to honor someone who has served our country at a special venue. We will be presenting the quilt on the main stage at the NE Washington Fair, Saturday, August 25th just before Kelly Hughes begins.

As always entries are free.
