At the recent gathering of the Women’s Fellowship of North Barnstead,
the lucky winner – Sharon Richards – was selected from a pail of hopeful
bidders. The quilt had been displayed at the Pumpkin & Pine Fair
last November and then hung during the winter at the Chichester Country
Store. After a good many delicious breakfasts while admiring the
quilt at the Chichester Country Store, Sharon decided to buy a ticket
for the quilt. Spring is now in full bloom inside her home as well
as out the window. Sharon, we hope you enjoy the comfort and
beauty for years to come!
