To Win Handmade Quilt
Friends of the Jackson County Public Library are featuring this "Bear Went Over the Mountain" quilt as a fund raiser for the Sylva library. Custom-crafted locally by Carolina Quilters, the generous queen-size (91 x 109”) quilt is alternately available for viewing at the library and the FOL Used Book Store downtown Sylva. Donations are $1 each or six for $5 and are available at the Book Store or from any FOL member or volunteer.
“We anticipate raising a lot of money for the library with this quilt so we’re extending the fund raising activity through December,” said FOL President Patricia Cowen, noting the quilt is worth several thousand dollars. “We’ll draw the winning entry at the Book Store on Dec. 18. The winner does not have to be present to win."
