Peeking out from behind her creation is Laurie Pile, the newest member of the Glen Ellen Village Fair Committee. The 5-by-5 foot quilt that hides her was designed and pieced together by Pile who was inspired by the post-fire rebuilding on O’Donnell Lane.

The final task of “quilting” the design will be done by the Glen Ellen Village Quilters – Mary Ann Carr, Margie Foster, Cathy Leonard, Marsha Moran, Deb Pool and Pamela Wiley. “The quilt is a depiction of what has been going on in Glen Ellen this past year,” says Pile. “Houses are going up. Rebuilding is happening. Excitement and anticipation are in the air. Community beautification abounds. The border represents the fun and gaiety of the recent whimsical Jack-to-Jack Yacht Race. This is about our community—living, loving and playing together. How convivial!”

Raffle Tickets for the quilt (which can alternatively be displayed as a wall hanging) are available by contacting Leslie Vaughn via email at or calling 935-9163.

Raffle ticket prices are three for $5, seven for $10, and 15 for $20.

Additional raffle items will be revealed throughout the coming months and on the day of the fair. Raffle winners will be announced at the fair on Oct. 13, but you don’t have to be present to win.

Proceeds of the raffle will be distributed back to the community’s nonprofits as voted on by the Glen Ellen Village Fair.

Coming Soon: Watch for the update on where to find the fair’s pop-up booth in downtown Glen Ellen on various dates, monthly, leading up to the annual Glen Ellen Village Fair on Oct. 13.
