Quilt tickets still on sale

Wednesday, August 3, 2011
The Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce is still offering tickets for a fireworks T-shirt quilt that has been on display at several Shell Knob businesses this summer. The quilt, which is handmade by Marilyn McSpadden and features fireworks T-shirts from 1988 through 2010, was recently appraised at $1,900 by a member of the American Quilter's Society. The piece will be on display at Liberty Dock Company Aug. 1 through Aug. 7, Neill's Home Store Aug. 8 through Aug. 14, Green Mountain Realty, Aug. 15 through Aug. 21 and MariCorps U.S. Aug. 22 through Aug. 28. Tickets can only be purchased at the displaying business and the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce office. The drawing for the quilt will be held at the Shakin' in the Shell Fest on Sept. 24. Proceeds from the sale of quilt tickets will benefit the Central Crossing Fire Protection District and the Shell Knob Chamber of Commerce.
