An incredible collaboration with the Cranbrook Quilter’s Guild has resulted in a very unique ‘wrap yourself in happiness’ raffle prize that will raise funds and awareness for local arts & culture in Cranbrook. The few remaining unsold 2018 ‘PEAK FREAK’ festival T-Shirts were given to the CQG and they creatively transformed them into a striking full sized quilt for the GRAND PRIZE. In this way, the shirts, originally donated by Sidekick Stickers, are recycled & continue to support local artists.
The hand-made black/white and red ‘Peak Freak’ quilt was designed, co-directed, bound and labeled by Jennifer Rea and machine quilted and co-directed by Joy French, CQG President; Cutting Cast: Ellen Stapleton, Sandra Martin and Brenda Arnold; Supporting Sewer’s: Betty Valin, Barb Olson, Linda Holm, Judy Guido, Janet Smith and Beth Lenz
The CQG meet regularly at the Cranbrook Senior’s Hall “providing information and inspiration to Cranbrook’s quilters”. They began in 1984 by a group of 16 local quilters inspired by another city’s guild and have a current membership of 68. Three of the founding women are still members today.
Statement from Joy French, CQG President: “The guild has always been very active in the community, although in a low key fashion. From our inception members have made quilts for people in our community and beyond who are experiencing trying times. The guild has distributed thousands of quilts over the past 34 years. When Fisher Peak Performing Artists Society approached us with the idea of partnering with them to raise funds we felt it was a perfect fit for us and a wonderful opportunity to raise our guild’s awareness in the community. We appreciate that FPPAS recognizes quilting as the art form it is and wants to work with us to a mutually beneficial end.”
The second prize is a ‘Coffee Lover’s Gift Pack’ that contains four custom-made coffee mugs from Cranbrook Photo, stuffed full of coffee samples from Kootenay Roasting Company, Tim Hortons, and McDonalds with Gift Certificates from Hot Shots Café and coffee tools from Canadian Tire. Our deep gratitude to these businesses for investing in our community!
