The Silver Thimble Award is an honor that may be given to a member of Las Colcheras Quilt Guild each year. It belongs to someone who has contributed more than her share to make the wheels turn smoothly in this organization and she is chosen by the outgoing President. The guild president may choose the award recipient or can ask the guild members for recommendations.
Silver Thimble Recipients
2017 Silver Thimble Award
The Silver Thimble Award was presented to Elaine Doornbos. She has been the raffle quilt committee chairman this year and also for the previous raffle quilt and has done an awesome job. She has been responsible in protecting and transporting the quilts to the many venues where the quilts are displayed and tickets sold. The scheduling of volunteers for these events was also part of her job. She was in attendance to board and general meetings.
Elaine has been an enormous contributor when it comes to quilting for the cupboard. Her loyalty to the guild shows in so many ways. She steps up when needed and is pleasant to be around. She truly deserves this recognition.
