2008 ROTARY INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION -
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA
The Rotarian Fellowship of Quilters and Fiber Artists had a fellowship booth in
the House of Friendship to display their projects and let convention goers from
around the world learn more about what we do. This year the Rotary
International staff made an exception and allowed our fellowship to hold a
silent auction for several (two quilts and 3 afghans) which were made
collectively by the majority of our members. The auction netted $3,000.00
US which was donated to the PolioPlus Challenge Campaign. Twenty new
members signed up for the fellowship and hundreds of pieces of literature were
disseminated. Children attending the convention were invited to come by the
booth and make a painted handprint on a plain white fabric square which will be
used to make children's quilts for our next project.
