Road to California 2017 Charity Event

Reposted from Road to California...

When we said we had big plans we meant it. Road to California has teamed up with the Robert and Beverly Lewis Cancer Care Center and Anita Grossman Soloman to make as many quilts as we can Saturday night. These quilts will then be donated to cancer patients at the center. We are asking that quilt blocks be made ahead of time and delivered to the Road to California office, or bring your premade blocks to the show.

Anita Grossman Soloman has graciously provided a pattern for us using her Make It Simpler Jacob's Ladder Pattern. We will have raffle and door prizes and you will have the chance of winning. For every block brought to the office or submitted at the show you will receive 1 (one) raffle ticket. There is no limit the number of entries, every block is equal to one raffle ticket. You can download the pattern here. For our Jacob's Ladder block we would like the background to be white or off white. As for the other colors we are requesting a color scheme that will represent a cancer awareness. For a listing of those colors please click here.

We will begin accepting blocks in the office on December 5th, 2016.

Road to California and you will engage in a Saturday night Sew-A-Thon! Starting at 7:00pm on Saturday January 21st, with your help we will begin the process of making as many quilts as possible until the Convention Center kicks us out! We will need help piecing the quilts, domestic quilting, Long arm quilting and lastly finishing. For more information please visit our website at http://www.road2ca.com/roadiesgiveback.html.
