Marcia Winchester (right) of Bryson City was the winner of the double wedding ring quilt raffled by Marianna Black Library as a fundraiser for the new library. The winning ticket was drawn at the Fourth of July Freedom Fest, in Bryson City. According to Margaret Varner (left), quilt committee chair, $1,716 was raised for the campaign.
The fabric for the quilt was donated by Jacque May in memory of her mother Elizabeth Hamm. The quilt was pieced by Maddy Haughn. Custom long arm quilting was done by Liz Butler and Patti Simpson of Ivy Lane Quilters.
Stay tuned, as we hope to have new information on the progress of the new library in Swain County in the Winter edition of the Fontana Flyer.
