Cabin Branch Quilters is supporting youth programs.
The organization is selling tickets for a raffle quilt that will be featured at a spring event. Its proceeds will benefit the Prince William County / Manassas Boys & Girls Clubs.
Established 30 years ago, the guild is made up of more than 150 members who are new and experienced quilters.
“Our mission is to promote quilting in Prince William County,” President Marianne Gravely said.
Members of the guild meet at Lake Ridge Baptist Church, 12450 Clipper Drive, on the fourth Monday of each month at 7 p.m.
They also organize an annual quilt show that Cabin Branch Quilters co-hosts with Stone House Quilters.
Hundreds of quilts will be on display at the next show, which is scheduled for April 4 and April 5, 2020.
It’s occurring at the Prince William County Fairgrounds, 10624 Dumfries Road in Manassas.
The event is also offering vendors, a scavenger hunt for children, and two raffle quilts — one from each of the guilds.
Rosie Blok made the quilt, a modern piece that was adapted from a design by Wendy Shepherd. It features various colors, including lime green and purple.
“I like the modern so much better, because it’s more open and you can see your quilting a lot better, and your colors are brighter,” Blok explained.
Community members can buy tickets for the raffle quilt by reaching out to a member of Cabin Branch Quilters. The tickets will also be available for purchase at a couple of upcoming craft shows.

- River Ridge Clubhouse in Woodbridge
