Since 2002, Jackie Arnold-Shafer has allowed her love for the art of creating lovely quilts to grow into a beautiful legacy of love. Jackie’s endless devotion of giving to the children of Positive Tomorrows has truly been a gift from the heart.
COALA Past President, Charlottee Blacklee, presented a certificate from COALA to Jackie Arnold-Shafer as a token of our appreciation for her devotion.
After 16 years, Jackie is retiring from making the quilt in the hopes that someone else in the COALA organization would love to take up this labor of love and continue with the quilt legacy. The theme for this year’s quilt was “Coat of Many Colors.” You can learn about the meaning of the quilt and Jackie’s retirement from making the quilt by viewing Jackie’s letter.
Jackie also did us the honor of selecting the winning quilt raffle ticket. The raffle winner was Jaime Caldwell of Continental Resources, Inc. As fate would have it, Jaime is a novice quilter herself. Jackie’s gift of love could not have been given to a more deserving winner.
Many thanks to Jackie and congratulations Jaime!
