Fit for a queen or king, this large handmade quilt with the signature Wyoming Steamboat fabric is being raffled to help support University of Wyoming 4-H and collegiate wool judging programs.
The quilt will travel on display around the state. Its first stop is Converse County Bank in Douglas. The date is to be determined. Individuals can purchase raffle tickets at their local county extension offices, from a UW wool judging team member or wool judging 4-H member. Tickets are $20 each or seven for $100. The winning ticket will be drawn in September at the state ram sale in Douglas.
“We realize it’s not the most convenient way to purchase tickets with the pandemic, but we really hope we can sell these tickets and keep the programs going for a long time,” said Whit Stewart, UW Extension sheep specialist.
Through conversations with some long-time friends and colleagues, Stewart shared with Russell and Kathy Bell of Campbell County about cuts made to his program.
