Dusie made this quilt so that she can raffle it for Macmillan Cancer Support. Her Dad had cancer and is now on the mend. Dusie wants to give something back to the people that helped him and her Mum.
The quilt is machine pieced and machine quilted, along with some hand stitching. It measures approximately 45 inches x 65 inches. Dusie donated all the materials and time - no costs will be taken from the ticket sales.
Tickets are £2 each, and the draw will take place on Friday 30th September 2011 at the Big Coffee Morning. If you buy a ticket or 2, Dusie will email you with your ticket number, If you buy 3 tickets (or more!), she will send you a postcard of the quilt and your ticket numbers. If you would like a ticket, you can donate here: http://www.justgiving.com/SusanPoole. Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - Dusie will raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
