Gesture was simply Kismet

To the Editor,

Generosity is alive and well in the Alberni Valley.  We believe that Kismet Quilts was a wonderful choice for the Small Business Excellence Award for Vancouver Island.  Their community involvement is an important aspect of their success.

The Saturday Quilters would like to thank Lynne at Kismet Quilts and her staff who so freely and eagerly donated their time, talent and thread to machine quilt a lovely design on the butterfly quilt we made and donated to Ty Watson House for a fundraising project.

With the support of so many organizations, shops and people in Port Alberni, it is always rewarding to hear, read and see what people do to help each other in our valley.

Tickets for the quilt are available at the following locations: Kismet Quilts, The Pincushion, Deb’s Fashions, and Marina’s Hair Design. On April 15–16 we will be selling tickets at Quality Foods and on April 23 at Walmart.    The winner will be drawn at the Hospice Gala event on May 28.

Zana Nesbitt,

Saturday Quilters
