The Store at Five Corners Stewardship Association, the new local non-profit organization that recently purchased the Store at Five Corners at 4 New Ashford Road in Williamstown, is delighted to announce the raffle of its one-of-a-kind Community Quilt! Over the past year, several community members have been putting their talents and sewing machines to work by participating in this collaborative project facilitated by Karen’s Quilting Corner of Williamstown.
The now-completed project is a large quilt measuring 98” by 86” and is being raffled to support the ongoing efforts of the Stewardship Association to preserve and maintain the historic Store building. A lucky winner will be chosen this winter as the Association celebrates its one-year anniversary of owning the Store.
Karen Charbonneau, president of the Stewardship Association, said “We’re thrilled with all the community spirit and effort that went into this exciting project, and the quilt is simply stunning.” She added, “Each quilter contributed two large hand-made squares, incorporating traditional quilting patterns as well as themes of Williamstown and the Berkshires. Karen’s Quilting Corner generously donated the coordinating fabrics and quilted the final product. If you look closely at the quilt, you can even see that two squares depict the beautiful Store at Five Corners building!”
The public is invited to see the quilt first-hand, currently on display in the café seating area at the Store at Five Corners (open 8am-7pm Tuesdays through Saturdays and 9am-3pm Sundays). Tickets are on sale for $5 each or $20 for five at Karen’s Quilting Corner and the Store at Five Corners. Earlier this year, Albany News10 ABC featured this project in a segment that can be seen here: https://www.news10.com/news/
Information about the Store’s newly reopened café and market, run by experienced chef Corey Wentworth, is available at https://www.
