The Story of “WINNING COLORS”
In the Spring of 2013, quilter Kathy Rodriguez, of Prospect, Oregon, began an ambitious project. She created a wall hanging utilizing dog show ribbons in order to donate it to TAKE THE LEAD for use as a fund raiser. In order to assemble the ribbons, Kathy sent requests out via various dog show Internet lists and well over 100 pounds of ribbons were gratefully received. Many of the ribbons came from Setter and Border Terrier fanciers, from professional handlers Bill & Taffe McFadden and Cassandra Minnick, as well as Jim Rau Superintendents and many individual exhibitors. Ribbons from all 50 States and from Canada went into the making of the wall hanging. It took 5 months to collect and organize the ribbons and prepare the pattern and the balance of the year to piece it together, add the center, which is all paper pieced and to finally complete it.
TAKE THE LEAD is now proud to offer everyone a chance to win this amazing and collectible wall hanging for only $5.00 per raffle ticket, the winner to be drawn at the AKC-EUKANUBA show on Sunday, December 14, 2014 at the TAKE THE LEAD booth.
