*INCENTIVE #14 DRAWING ENDS TONIGHT AT 8 PM EDT*
I will post the Incentive #14 winners this evening when I get the results.

***All online ticket donations end at 
8 PM EDT tonight as well.***

Lori Taylor of The Quilting Bee will be at the Hospitality Room of the headquarters hotel (Hyatt House, Plymouth Meeting, PA) on Thursday, October 3rd, starting at 5 pm. You may make your donation in person and get your tickets at that time and again on Sunday, October 6th at the Montgomery Kennel Club Show in Blue Bell, PA. Lori Taylor will be at the Quilt Display Tent near the Airedale Ring and will accept donations up until the time of the drawing.


Your donations will make a difference in the lives of so many Airedales in need!

Helping Airedales, it is the right thing to do.

On behalf of all the rescued Airedales and those to come, 

A HUGE THANK YOU!


We appreciate your continued support of the Airedale Quilt Fundraiser.




The Airedale Rescue Quilting Bee



There will be a few more follow-up blogs after Montgomery so you can find out who won the quilt and the bonus quilts.  Perhaps this year's winner will do a photo story of receiving the quilt like last year's winner.  You never know...I hope you have enjoyed reading all the stories about the quilt blocks, bonus quilts and the Rescue dogs.

I will be working as Cashier at the Airedale Rescue Bazaar located near the Airedale ring on Sunday, Oct. 6th so please stop by and say "Hello".  I will post the winners of the quilt and bonus quilts/wall hangings later, much later, that evening when I return home.

The Airedale Quilting Bee wants to thank everyone who donated for quilt tickets, donated incentive prizes, and/or spread the word about the quilt fundraiser on their lists, Facebook pages or other social media outlets.  We so very much appreciate your support.  National Airedale Rescue depends on this yearly fundraiser.  If you haven't found the hidden message located on the right side of the quilt, it says "It takes a Village to raise an Airedale".  It certainly takes a Village and then some to help the Airedales in need.  Your monetary support makes it possible for the Rescue volunteers to devote their time and energies to the Airedales and not have to worry about how they will pay that vet bill for the dog that needs special attention.  Sometimes we get dogs that require very little medically aside from the basic checkup and shots, but then there are those special cases that need much more than that.  Your donations make it possible to get those Airedales the best possible medical care needed so that they can go on to live a happy, healthy life in their new homes.  We all love this breed or we wouldn't be doing what we do.  We give a lot to the rescue dogs, but the very special secret is that these dogs give us back so much more than we give them

Please consider helping next year with the Quilting Bee.  I hope after following this blog, you will realize how many talents go into making a quilt and those talents are not just limited to sewing!  And I can attest to the fact that you don't have to have any prior training.  Quilters are very generous people who are willing to share what they know.  I started not knowing how to even do an applique, and I ended up making a complete 4-block wall hanging from start to finish. It was another way to help Rescue now that I'm not a "hands on" rescue volunteer.  So everyone has something to contribute and we could use your help as can the local and regional Airedale Rescue groups.
