Winners will be announced at 3 p.m. and do not need to be present to win either the Smokey River Quilt or items from the Silent Auction.

Both Quilt Guilds are very active and do community service projects. The Jemez Mountain Bear Paw quilters have been making quilts and giving them to the families of fallen New Mexico servicemen and women. The Los Alamos Peacemaker’s do various projects and have made more than 40 quilts for the Little Bear Fire victims.

The LA Peacemaker’s meet the 4th Tuesday of each month. This month there is a potluck at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22 at the United Church in Los Alamos welcoming those interested in joining the Quilt Guild.
