When we delivered quilts to Canuck Place back in August they promised to send a picture of Lorraine’s quilt to Eddie Lack. They did so via Twitter and he responded with an “awesome.” We can’t help but smile as that’s the closest any of us will get to this former Vancouver Canuck netminder. Bo Horvat also responded to the picture of his quilt by Liz with a re-tweet to his followers.
During our July quilt-a-thon we did an interview with Heather from the Quilter’s Connection magazine. She wrote about how the quilts came to be, back in 2011 and the hopes that one day (and it won’t be this year) the Vancouver Canucks do win a Stanley Cup.
We received our magazines on December 2nd and, again, we can’t help but smile as we don’t know if we’ll ever get published again. QC mission statement: Quilter’s Connection Magazine is a national magazine dedicated to quilters who love to quilt. Quilter’s Connection entertains Canadian quilters with news and reviews, projects, motivational stories about quilters and their achievements, quilting tips and techniques. Our magazine inspires, informs, and offers connection among quilters across Canada. Joan and I are thrilled to have our story published and encourage you to get a subscription from this Canadian magazine. https://quiltersconnection.ca/
Heather sent along some extra copies and they arrived in time for our visit to Canuck Place’s House Light-up. Joan and I felt honoured to get the invitation to this event and it was a very enchanting evening.
The night was perfect, sandwiched right between wind and rainstorms. We enjoyed refreshments, Christmas carols, Fin and the lighting of the entire house and yard. It was pretty cool to see Henrik Sedin, Kirk McLean & Orland Kurtenbach hanging out with everyone.
We couldn’t be this successful with our I Believe in Blue quilt campaigns without the support of all who encourage, sponsor and quilt for this most worthy cause. Thank you. The 6th annual campaign will be starting up shortly and we look forward to delivering 17 quilts to round the number up to 100!!
Happy Quilting…Valerie Raye
