The Winner Is…
Graves County Piecemakers won the Third Annual Charity/Service Project or Community Outreach Project and the $50.00 prize money!
Graves County Piecemakers with 27 members made 200 bags made for the Beads of Courage program at Lourdes Hospital. This program is intended for not only breast cancer patients, but children and adults with all types of cancer. Beads are given to cancer patients as they go through their journey of cancer treatments. The beads are to encourage them and help them to speak about what they are going through. The bags are made to hold the beads they receive.
In addition to this the Graves Co guild also held a quilt show during the month of April at the Ice House Art Museum in Mayfield. During this event $1275 was raised to benefit the museum through a rummage sale.
During the month of December the guild donated three large baskets of personal items and goodies to the women's' shelter located in Mayfield.
