A bonus feature of the 2017 Fall Tour of Gardens is the opportunity to own a beautiful garden themed quilt. Donated for a RCMGA fundraiser, the quilt was sewn and quilted by Master Gardener Karen Rainville. Moda fabric “The Potting Shed” was used and Karen enhanced the quilt with pin tucking, continuous French Braid sashing, applique, and machine embroidery.
For the runner ups in the raffle garden themed gift baskets will also be part of the drawing. Tickets are on sale 6 for $5.00 or 12 for $10.00 or 18 for $15.00 or 24 for $20.00 … and so on!
Tickets are available from Master Gardener members. You can also send a SSAE (stamped, self-addressed envelope) to: RAFFLE TICKETS, 915 Whitmore, Suite B, Rockwall, Texas 75087. Make check payable to RCMGA. If purchased by mail, your name and phone number will be written on the back of the tickets and the stubs will be returned to you in the SSAE. The deadline to purchase raffle tickets in the mail is October 27.
The drawing will be held on November 4 at 4:00 p.m. after the Fall Tour of Gardens and the winner will be notified by phone.
On the day of the tour, the quilt will be on display at the Rockwall Historical Museum at Harry Meyer’s Park.
The gift baskets will be displayed at the other garden sites. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase on November 4 at all of the Fall Tour of Garden sites.
