Quilt Raffle

This beautiful crazy quilt was lovingly created by the Bosler Upstairs Stitchers and donated to the Friends of Bosler Memorial Library to be used as a fundraiser! Now, we have TWO fabulous quilts to raffle. See both quilts hanging in the Bookery.

Tickets are available at the Bookery, or you may have received some tickets in the February mailing from the Friends (if you are a current member). Help support the Friends and your library by purchasing raffle tickets.

Winner's name will be drawn in November 2015. Thank you, as always, for your support.

Bosler Upstairs Stitchers (downstairs) meet Tuesdays 6:30 to 8:30. All skill levels welcome. No dues. Advice always available.


Friends of Bosler Library announced that Jean Clemens of Forge Road was the 2014 winner of the Quilt Raffle. The 2014 quilt was from Quarry Hills Quilts and was made in the "Irish Chain with Stars" pattern. The colors are a black and white contrast The quilt was presented to her at the "Friends" November Board meeting by Vice President Sandy Kohler. Jean is pictured here with Sandy as she received this year's beautiful hand made quilt. When asked if she expected to win, Jean replied, "NO! I've never won anything before. I just bought a ticket to support the library."


All proceeds benefit the Bosler Memorial Library and its programs, services, and operating expenses.
