LA VETA- Huerfano County’s Scrappy Ladies Quilt Guild had a very successful “Stars over La Veta” quilt show over the 4th of July weekend, with around 250 people attending. Their boutique was a success and visitors loved the free gifts. Barb Marovitz won the overall viewers choice award, and Barb Beckner took the honors for best star quilt. The raffle quilt winner was Agnes Classen of Colorado City. The raffle quilt project earned $1400, proceeds from which will be used to to further quilting in the area. To accomplish this, the Scrappy Ladies will be bringing in guest speakers for programs, and purchasing quilting books for the Spanish Peaks library. The group’s next meeting will be August 11 at 9:30 am at the Huerfano County Community Center.
