The Independence Hall Quilters are proud to announce that Jeff Johnson, with “Cut with Confidence” will be at the faire this year! Jeff has been sharpening for 25 years and is factory authorized to sharpen to original precision angles. Bring your scissors and knives and have them sharpened while you shop our many vendor booths and view our magnificent quilts!
The IHQ’s 2015 Scholarship Quilt will be available to admire and buy tickets to win. All proceeds from raffle ticket sales go directly toward IHQ’s Scholarship program that awards scholarships to local High School seniors towards college expenses. The IHQ Treasures (consolation prizes) will be drawn right after the quilt. We also raffle off an American Girl Doll. This year’s “Grace”, a sweet brunette, is accompanied by a wardrobe of hand-made and fashionable outfits. Grace, and all of her accessories, will be on display in the vendor area.
The drawing(s) will be at the close of Faire on Sunday at 4:00pm. Need not be present to win.
