KAMIAH — Even through all the hardships of this last year, the Central Idaho Quilters have continued in their annual tradition and they’ve created a queen-sized goodwill quilt to be raffled called “Idaho Dream.” Members pieced the blocks that contain scenes of cabins, fish, rowboats and lakes. Local long-armer, Becky Schultz, put the finishing touch on it with her quilting.
The first chance to buy tickets to win this quilt will be at the yard sale on May 1 at the Kamiah Senior Center from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. In addition, more than a dozen quilters will be selling fabric, books, patterns and more.
The Central Idaho Quilters meet the first Tuesday of every month at the Kamiah Senior Center at 5:30 p.m. The group also has two sew days a month: the second Saturday and the fourth Tuesday. These days are also at the Senior Center and run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. This is an opportunity to sew, learn and socialize. Many of these days are spent working on Combat Veterans Quilts.
