Feztival of Trees
"Homemade with Love"

To support local Shriners and their many charities, area businesses, organizations and individuals donate decorated Christmas trees for their "Feztival of Trees" to be held in Calais this fall.  The public is invited to attend, purchase raffle tickets and take chances on the dozens of trees of their choice.  Winning tickets are drawn for each tree on the last day of the Feztival.  Lucky ticket holders win the tree, decorations and all.

St. Croix International Quilters would like to support the Shriners by entering a tree with the theme "Homemade with Love." 

To make our entry possible, we need your help.  There will be a workshop in September (TBA) to work on decorations.  In the meantime, here's a list of quilted and/or homemade items you can contribute now:

Tree Skirt
Artificial Tree

Also to put under the tree, quilted and/or homemade:

Mug Rugs with or without mug
Quilted bags
Snap bags
Tote bags
Coin holders
Pot holders
Casserole carriers
Microwave bowls, any size
Jams, Jellies and Pickles
Fudge and Candy
...just to name a few
