Fundraising

Announcing Friends 2021 Project Potholder . . .

The Project Pincushion fundraiser was a huge success, thanks to sewists from around the country. Your contributions were awesome, and brought in much needed funds during a difficult time at the museum. Funds raised from selling potholders in the museum's Gift Shop will once again go toward presenting new and exciting exhibits. 

Here are the guidelines for making and donating potholders:

  • Make two potholders to be sold as pairs (they do not need to be identical)
  • 6” to 10” in size, any shape
  • Fabric should be 100% quilt quality cotton
  • Batting should be 2 layers of cotton or wool or 1 layer of cotton batting plus 1 layer of insulation such as Insul-Bright©
  • Include a hanging loop or ring

Do you have a favorite hot dish recipe? Put it on a 3” x 5” card and include two copies with the potholders. One copy will be set aside for a possible future cookbook.
