Ben Franklin will be accepting finished quilts and quilt tops through the month of June. They will be displayed throughout the store during the month of July for public judging by our customers. In August at our Saturday Sampler meeting (8/4 @ 8:00 am), three winners will be announced.

• 1st Place in voting, $75 Ben Franklin gift card.
• 2nd Place in voting, $50 Ben Franklin gift card.
• 3rd Place in voting, $25 Ben Franklin gift card.
• One (1) $25 Ben Franklin gift card will be by random drawing from the pool of voters.

You may turn quilts and quilt tops in the Fabric Department at any time during June. You may submit as many quilts and quilt tops as you would like. All entries MUST be submitted no later than 5:00 pm Sat, June 30, 2018. Please see the PDF pamphlet for the specifications on the quilts: http://www.bfranklincrafts.com/Hero-Quilts-Brochure-2018.pdf

After the contest is over, Ben Franklin is pairing up with American Hero Quilts, right here in Washington State, to send as many quilts as possible to Madigan Army Medical Hospital at Fort Lewis and to their new long-term care facility, the Warrior Transition Center and directly to bases in Afghanistan. They have distributed over 26,500 quilts! You can visit their website for more information: www.americanheroquilts.com
