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.
