Some of our readers have asked to see photos of Joyce Reynolds' latest quilt that honors Ocracoke's watermen. I saw her in the post office the other day (by the way, that's where about 75% of Ocracoke's local networking takes place), and she agreed to send me some pictures.
The first photo shows Joyce on the left, and Gene Ballance on the right.
The quilt is put together from fishing related t-shirts, most of them signed by the local fishermen. Joyce said it was so much fun to collect the shirts, then to wander about the island contacting the fishermen for signatures.
Joyce's quilt is being raffled off. Tickets are $15.00 each, and you can download a form to join the raffle by going to the OWWA web site (http://www.ocracokewatermen.org/). From there click on the link to "What's New at the Fish House." Good luck!
