Dorothy Smith of Malta was the lucky winner of the 2017 Classics Carpenter Star Quilt, which was hand- pieced and quilted by Classics Club members. Ms. Smith could not have been happier when her name was announced at the drawing, held during the Annual Classics Club Holiday Party at Resource Bank’s HearthStone Center in DeKalb.
The Family Pet Care Center at The Barn on Baseline in Genoa received $1,730.00 in proceeds from the Classics Comfort Quilt. Biljana Jovanovic, Resource Bank Classics Advisor, stated, “We have to thank our hardworking Classics Club quilters for the fabulous quilts they make every year. Just before the announcement of the winner, Dorothy mentioned that this year’s quilt was her favorite one! We are so happy she was able to win it.”
Work will begin on the 2018 quilt very soon. Resource Bank’s Classics Club coordinates the annual project, which begins in February with a group lesson in square building. Each year a local charity is selected to receive the quilt.
The Resource Bank Classics Club is a fun and exciting opportunity for people age 55 and over to participate in trips, education, and networking. If you would like further information on upcoming events or how you can join the fun, please call (815) 756-6321.
