We have a winner! The Stanley Bridge Centre’s (SBC) Centennial Quilt, designed and crafted by a talented group of quilters in Charlottetown in honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, was won by Andrea Shaw of Covehead.
Shaw was joined by her husband David and one of their two daughters, 11-year-old Ashlyn, at the Stanley Bridge Centre on Saturday, Dec 16, to claim her prize.
“I never win anything,” said a delighted Andrea.
Her lucky ticket was one of approximately 700 purchased during the spring and summer months at the SBC’s farmer’s market. Money from ticket sales will go towards renovations at the SBC.
Quilt tickets, at five dollars each and three for $10, drew an enthusiastic response, with many purchased by visitors travelling to Stanley Bridge from as far away as the United States, China, the United Kingdom, several European countries, Japan and Australia.
