Going to the Arts and Music Festival

At least I'll be there all day Saturday, working on fund raising for the new library.  And now for a few moments of self-promotion:

Ed, over the years, has developed a line of "Somewhere in Point Roberts" postcards that he occasionally brings out for sale.  Now he's donated the inventory to the Library Building Fund.  So, the postcards will be at the Festival.

A few months back, though, it occurred to me that, given the enthusiasm that the "Abandoned House" quilts have received, people might be equally enthusiastic over a series of "Somewhere in Point Roberts" quilts.  And might be particularly willing to buy such quilts if all the proceeds are going to the Library Building Fund.  If you like small quilts on your walls, it's a nice way to support your community.

Now what seems like a good idea may or may not actually turn out to be a good idea, but we are going to be trying out this idea on Saturday and Sunday at the A&M Festival.  We're going with five quilts for starters (prices ranging from $100 to $225) and you'll probably need to be using a check because you may not be roaming with that kind of cash and the Friends of the Library don't do credit cards (at least not yet).  But, consider....  In any case, come by and see them and tell me what you think.

Here's a sample, and you can see the other four quilts here.  PLUS, we will have a beautiful "Kaleidoscope" quilt, made by local quilter June Christie for your delight at seeing and joy at purchasing.
