Northern Neighbors Quilters (NNQ) have constructed their 18th annual Can-Am Raffle Quilt. The quilt measures 100"x100". This dazzling quilt was hand pieced by members of NNQ of Fort Kent and surrounding communities. It is titled 'Paws on the Run'. It was machine quilted by Sandra Bossie of Majestic Touch Quilt Shop in St. Agatha ME. It features the Can-Am Crown Logo designed by Absolom (Smitty) Dow.

Raffle tickets are $1.00 each or 7 for $5.00 (all funds taken at par). The quilt will be displayed at the Fiddlers' Jamboree, Sunday, at the UMFK campus where tickets will be available.
