It’s a first for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show: a fundraiser that has literally "taken off."  An 18 month calendar, called "The Men Behind the Quilts" features some of Sister's best - and willing "assets" almost in the buff.  Quilt Executive Director Ann Richardson explains how everything came together:  “We are a nonprofit organization, and our show is free, but our show is not free to us. It’s costs about $150,000 to put on the show. So we are always trying to come up with creative ways to raise funds to support the show. And our Board of Directors came up with the idea doing a calendar. And someone came up with the brilliant idea of 'what about guys & quilts?' and it just kind of took off from there." 

 

Richardson says they asked several well know Sisters personalities like the retired Fire Chief and Sisters Athletic Club owner and they all agreed to pose nude behind the quilts.  The calendars are on sale in most Sisters businesses and on the Quilt Show website.  The 2012 Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show is July 14th.
