Silent Auction and Quilt Raffle

Another part of the entertainment happening at Jake's Music Festival is a silent auction. We annually have wonderful items from many local companies. This year's auction includes an overnight stay at the JW Marriot, a gift certificate to John Russo's Wine Warehouse and the beautiful quilt you see above. The quilt, created by Lowell artisan Barb Dey Porter, will be raffled off at the music festival. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5. Tickets can be purchased in advance and at the concert.

The large quilt measures 65" x 68" and is a reproduction of a famous quilt called "Trip Around the World." Information about the quilt from the artist: Quilt reproductions are from the Michigan State University Museum. Travel back in time to the 1930s with this colorful mix of prints, solids and novelties based on the MSU Museum "Trip Around the World" Quilt made by Lauar May Clarke in 1932.
