Charity Quilt Challenge & Jim Hamre Scholarship Fund Benefit Auction

The Virgina Star Quilters And The Rail Passengers Association Bring You The 2019 'Out My Window' Charity Quilt Challenge & Benefit Auction

The Challenge's Theme Is 'Out My Window' - What You Can See Out The Windows Of A Train

Over twenty talented quilters have produced original works of art, all based on this theme!

The quilts were debuted at a showing in early April at the Rail Nation DC gathering.

They will be displayed at four additional locations over the coming months:

  • October 18 - 21 At RailNation:California In Sacramento, CA (at the Sheraton Grand Hotel Downtown Sacramento)

Following RailNation:California in Sacramento, the quilts will be sold by auction (via an on-line bidding site) with the proceeds of the sales benefiting The Jim Hamre Memorial Scholarship Fund. Bidding will open on October 20, 2019
