Mystery Book Quilt Raffle

Drawing on March 26

The Mystery Quilt was sewn by Diana Senturia with the intention of donating it to Peacham Library as a Raffle Fundraiser. She created it during an online quilt-along led by the Gypsy Moth Quilt Shop, using Angel Pingel’s “Book Nerd” pattern. 

Diana and her husband, Jerry, carefully chose fabrics that matched her favorite mystery books and printed the titles on fabric that is used as each book’s spine. The quilt has book-themed backing fabric and a customized label on the back. It was custom quilted and bound at Woodinville WA by Laurie Gustafson and Kirsten Senturia.

Diana has included only the titles – can you name all the authors? 



1 Ticket – $5
3 Tickets – $10
10 Tickets – $25


Tickets are available at the library. If you can’t make it to the library you can send us a check or contact us at quilts@peachamlibrary.org

Winter Coffee House Returning in Person This Year

February 4th at 7 PM

The Peacham Library will host its annual Coffee House live music series with performances from local artists each month from February through April. After two years of virtual events, the series will return in person this year! The Coffee House series brings community together with live music and camaraderie to warm even the coldest winter evening.

Performances will begin at 7pm in the basement of the Peacham Library.

The Winter series kicks off with Fifth Business, a crowd favorite, rejoining the folks of Peacham for (at least) their 9th year in a row to fight the chill of winter by huddling around the metaphorical fires of song and mirth. Expect these creatives to take on their usual pub songs and art tunes, leavened by the occasional sincere ballad, in a repertoire that is Not (entirely) Safe For Work. The ensemble includes Nick Anzalone, Stuart Corso, Steve Davie, Heather Alger, and Kate Davie.

All performances are free, although a $5 donation is encouraged to support the performers. An open mic session will follow their performance.

PERFORMANCE LINE-UP:
Saturday, February 4th, at 7pm || Fifth Business
Saturday, March 4th, at 7pm || Rake Factory Union
Saturday, April 8th, at 7pm || Loud Moon
