You've got until July 11th. ASG meets here that evening at 6.

Do you feel lucky?
 "I know what you're thinking: 'Should I buy six raffle tickets or only five?'"

"Well, to tell you the truth, in all the excitement of having the NMQA Balloon Fiesta Raffle Quilt at Hip Stitch, I'm not so sure myself.

"But being as this year's quilt is the most colorful and well-executed to date, with powerful imagery that will completely blow your mind . . .you've got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya?"

Come on in and buy a raffle ticket. (Recall, "Dirty Harry" Callahan had no shots left, so you should try your luck!)
