“LIGHTS, CAMERA, EN KA!” 2014 QUILT
Winchester, MA – April 27, 2014
This year’s En Ka quilt pays tribute to the 2014 En Ka Fair theme of “Lights, Camera, En Ka!” Led by 2014 Quilt Chair, Bea Grayson, more than 15 dedicated and talented En Ka members worked more than 150 hours to create a Hollywood-worthy masterpiece.
“The queen-sized quilt has multi colored blocks with a very bright center that insinuates the design of cameras and lights,” explained Grayson. “The quilting pattern incorporates the illustration of stars, another reference to the glamorous star and film making world.”
The following En Ka members participated in the creation of the 2014 quilt:
Dori Carellas, Karen Eppig, Pauline Foley, Phyllis Gleason, Hillary Grant, Glenda Green, Barbara Hyde, Clare Keane, Ruth Kenerson, Karen Martin, Margaret McIndoe, Jodie Mullane, Cecily Parkhurst, Betsy Sampson, Loren Schipani, Gabrielle Stott and Lori Walsh.
The quilt will be displayed at the Winchester Cooperative Bank for two weeks prior to the start of the Fair on May 16, and will be raffled off at 9:00pm, on May 17th, at the Information Booth of the Fair. Raffle tickets are $1 each (or 6 for $5) and are available at the Winchester Cooperative Bank. Tickets will also be for sale at the Fair. All proceeds will benefit the many charities and non-profit organizations that En Ka supports.
The En Ka Society is a volunteer non-profit organization comprised of women in Winchester. The Society’s objective is to provide aid, through volunteer services and through raising funds, for local charities, non-profit organizations and other groups that serve the people of Winchester. En Ka’s primary sources of raising funds are the annual En Ka Fair, held every May, and the En Ka Exchange, a clothing consignment store located at 1037 Main Street in Winchester.
