Judy Wedemeyer Transforms Ties into Treasure for Good Cause

This table runner is the first of three projects Judy Wedemeyer is creating for the Salvation Army's 4th Annual ‘Transformed Treasures’ Auction Luncheon April 16, 2011 at the Sheraton Anchorage Hotel.  Judy writes: “Unlike the set of four table mats I donated last year for this event, this table runner was sewn on pre-stamped foundation sheets thereby simplifying the construction process.  I eliminated two of the fourteen dress ties I'd chosen at the Salvation Army to be 'transformed' because they didn't blend well enough with the dozen I used.  A thin poly batting inside allows for enough definition in the machine quilting without being too fluffy.  Other display options would be as a wall hanging over a wide doorway or on a narrow wall space”.
More than 100 one-of-a-kind treasures will be auctioned to the highest bidder.  Here's how it works...
Everyday items are 'purchased' from donated goods found at local Salvation Army Thrift Stores with $50. worth of Salvation Army vouchers given to each participant.  Through the time and talents of local artists/designers these ordinary objects will be transformed into one-of-a-kind auction pieces.  This annual event leverages local creative talent and compassion in such a fun and rewarding manner, touching many lives both in the giving and receiving.  The Auction Preview is free and open to the public, April 1st, 5-7 pm in the BP Energy Center.
