The Black Canyon Quilt Show & Sale was another huge success for the three area quilt guilds. This year Region 10 Community Living Services was chosen to benefit from the proceeds of the sale. Each spring Community Living Services and our community partners from throughout the region join forces to produce a regional Caregiver Summit. This is a great event that supports family and professional caregivers; however, it is costly to put together. The 2018 Caregiver Summit will be the best yet thanks to the hard work and dedication of our community quilters who collectively created over 500 handmade pieces for the sale to benefit our program. The Caregiver Summit is such an important event for our communities and knowing that this generous donation was made possible at the hands of our Montrose quilters make it even more special.
In addition to the donation, we were also invited to do a brief presentation at each of the 3 guilds which helped us get the word out about the programs we have for disabled and older adults. Making sure our community knows about these resources is so important; we want to make sure that those in need of support know where to get it.
THANK YOU to everyone who made the 2017 Black Canyon Quilt Show a success, we will make you proud with the 2018 Caregiver Summit.
