For the 27th year, Interfaith Quilters of Longmont is more intent than ever to raise much needed funds for the O.U.R. Center of Longmont and the Safe Shelter of St. Vrain Valley.
With the exception of a small amount of money necessary to purchase materials, the entire amount raised at the sale benefits these two charities equally. Again in 2013, the sale will be held at the First Lutheran Church of Longmont, 803 Third Ave. in Longmont.
New this year is a featured quilt recently located in the church basement by members of the First Lutheran Archives Committee. This red and white friendship quilt was created in 1895 by the “ladies of the SW Lutheran Sewing Society of Boulder,” which is a precursor to First Lutheran. This is a rare find, especially important for several members of the First Lutheran Church who are descendants of those whose names are embroidered on the quilt. Interfaith Quilters is proud to be able to display this quilt. Members of the Archives Committee will be on hand on both days to answer any questions and expound on the history of the quilt, the Boulder area and it’s early settlers.
The sale is always on the first weekend in March, which, this year, will be Friday, March 1 (Preview night), and Saturday, March 2 (Sale Day).
