Quilt Winner

The raffle held to benefit the African Artists Community Development Project was drawn on Christmas Day out of the Tuareg basket. Susan Spence was the winner of a beautiful quilt that was a collaboration between craftswomen in Lusaka, Zambia, who sewed the panels, and women on Martha’s Vineyard, who pieced the quilt together.

AACDP founder Marsha Winsryg reports the sale of 100 tickets raised $1,000; $500 has been sent to the craftswomen and the other $500 to the family of Winifred Moomba, whose family lost four members when a speeding car crashed into their little house in Livingstone, Zambia.
