Postcard sales for Carma house

I just heard from Wendy at Carma house! Here is her message.

"For the past two days, I have been in Bankers Hall with Therese, promoting the event, I have attached a photo of the display that was taken today. Your postcards are on the table in front.

We have been selling them for $5 or $10 and have made $110 in two days! I wanted to let you know that there is great interest in what we are doing and I am confident that we will have great success at both the Bankers Hall auction and the Wellspring Calgary Christmas."

I am so pleased that the cards you all sent me are doing so well for Carma house.
She just told me that people were very intrigued and interested in the postcards.
They have set up the quilts and cards in Banker's Hall which is a business center
right down town.

Once again, I want to thank all of those who donated cards for Carma house in my name and Rob's name.

Carol - the display is made up
of beautiful quilts which have been made and donated to "The Quilt Project" for cancer support. Wellspring will receive the monies from them. They will be auctioning them off in Banker's hall on Thursday, and at Carma house on the 28th at the Christmas open house.

I have donated 4 of my wall hangings so I hope they will sell.

My work did very well at the auction last year so hopefully they will do okay this year.
