Over 100 members of the PebbleCreek Quilters Club met in the beautiful Tuscany Falls Chianti Room on Dec. 9, 2019, to celebrate the activities and charity projects completed during the year. A highlight of the meeting was the display of the 2019 opportunity quilt donated by Sue Godwin and quilted by Barb Maurer. The room was quiet with suspense as the winning ticket was drawn. The winner was Carol Horan. Proceeds from ticket sales are used to purchase supplies for community service projects.

Some of the items include: 23 quilts to Hospice of the Valley, 9 quilts to Ryan’s House, 20 veterans’ quilts, 7 dog beds, 37 Hope Bags for New Life Center, 38 Zippy/Strippy Bags, and 2 men’s bags for New Life Center and nearly 100 baby bibs and baby quilts to Abrazo West Medical Center.
