BERNINA of America, the world’s premier manufacturer of sewing, embroidery and quilting machines, is pleased to announce that a one-of-a-kind quilt created by the staff at Appletree Quilting Center, a BERNINA Dealer in Columbia, Mo., is being raffled to raise funds to support a local team’s breast cancer walk. The quilt was created in honor of an Appletree Quilting Center employee’s mom, who is a cancer survivor, and later donated to Dee Baker, a nurse at the Ellis Fischel Cancer Center in Columbia. Dee is raffling off the quilt to raise funds for her team’s participation in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day walk to support breast cancer patients. Raffle tickets are $5 each or six for $25 and available by contacting Dee at (660)888-1378 or emergende@yahoo.com.
