Braided Rug Raffle Drawing!

Braided RaffleOur “Braided Color Wheel Rug” special raffle tickets were drawn and WE HAVE A WINNER!

January 5, 2024, we pulled the winning ticket to the beautiful Color Wheel Braided Rug, and the lucky winner is Pam Rowan!!! We mixed and mixed and mixed those tickets and our board president, Carolyn Wollen drew the winner. We are thrilled that Pam won this heirloom treasure, as she's been very helpful and supportive to Maine Fiberarts and did such a great job in having us present a slide talk before Valley Forge Braiders in PA, setting up demonstrators during our "Braiding Now" exhibit, talking her friends into buying tickets, purchasing several (many!) tickets herself, and working with kids to learn braiding who came to the gallery. It’s a beautiful rug and Pam is a deserving winner!!

We sold exactly 101 tickets earning $2020, and I am so proud that we met our goal and raised money for Maine Fiberarts. THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PURCHASED TICKETS. Thank you also to Pam Rowan, Bobbi Mahler, Nancy Young and friends for working on this rug. The whole experience of working with the braiders has been a pleasure and we are still taking lessons from Bobbi! We won much more than raffle money.
