ALMONT — Raiders fans have a chance to show their colors and wrap themselves in warmth this winter with a custom-made, one-of-a-kind quilt.
Handmade by professional quilter Sharon Lams, the large orange and black cotton quilt will be raffled off to help fund Almont cheerleaders' activities.
"We came up with the idea after talking about what type of fundraising we could do to help with the costs of competitions, camp and shirts and uniforms," Lams says, adding that her daughter Kimberly is on the cheerleading squad.
Since she owns her own quilting company 'Sewing Comforts,' which gives her a creative edge, Lams decided to make a quilt and raffle it off.
