Wrapping up the Glen Ellen Village Fair; quilt winners and more

Who won the quilt?

Every year hundreds, maybe even thousands, of happy hopeful folks in Glen Ellen and beyond buy tickets for a chance to win the beautiful Glen Ellen Village Fair quilt. Even though there can be only one winner, all of that money helps to fund our fair. It’s the seed money that pays for all of the set-up and permits, including those behind the scenes helpers like the highway patrol that keep us safe all day.

But the big question after the fair is always, who won the quilt? I am truly happy to announce that it is once again a longtime hometown resident of our village.

Congratulations to “Food for Thought” quilt winner Mari jo Dickerson, who says, “I’m thrilled to win the quilt. I’ve always coveted it, and bought raffle tickets every year.” She further adds, “and have known so many of the quilt makers over the years.”

Yes, many of us feel affection for quilt makers, present and past. While Mari jo and I discussed the quilt, we also reminisced about our dear friend Janet Laursen, who often made wonderful squares (and designed at least one edition of our annual hometown T-shirts). We miss her. There’s Phyllis Ellman, too, and many more. I dedicated my square to some of those good folks.
