We are excited to announce the results of the 2017 Asheville Cotton Co. Customer Quilt Show!
This is the quilt show for the rest of us. This quilt show is different from other shows in that entrants don't have to be an expert to enter the show or to win. Any size project is welcomed.
Voters voted by making donations toward their favorite quilts. In addition to voting with donations, voters also got one free vote for their very “Favorite Quilt” and one free vote for their favorite “Beginner’s Quilt” (the entrant has been quilting for less than a year). The winners in these categories also won prizes.
This year, all donations went to the MANNA FoodBank here in Asheville. Our customers raised an incredible $4200 this year for MANNA! We have raised more than $20,000 in the six years we have been donating Quilt Show proceeds to MANNA. That's more than 60,000 meals!
Everyone who entered their quilts received a prize from us. In addition to the hundreds of dollars in Asheville Cotton Co. Gift Cards given away, other prizes were generously donated by the following sponsors:
Happy Body Fitness & Wellness
2 on Crescent Boutique, Biltmore Village
Turner & Co. Salon, Biltmore Village
The Cantina, Biltmore Village
Customer Quilt Show Results
Thanks to our great customers, we had another awesome Customer Quilt Show. Together we raised an incredible $4200 for MANNA Food Bank right here in Asheville. That's more than 12,000 meals! This took our total donations over the last six years to more than $20,000.
Here's a link to the newscasts featured on WLOS last week. Thanks so much to WLOS for the coverage! Special thanks to Mary Parker (and hubby John) and John Fernandez for getting up so early to be on live tv.
