The 30th Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest Quilt donations are now on their way to their new owners.
There are two categories of quilts. The small size must be at least 46" x 36" and no larger than 60" x 56". The larger size must be at least 60" x 72". Each quilt contains a "Warmth from Wisconsin" starter square from Sew Complete. The starter square must be included in the quilt top to qualify for the contest. Quilts will be judged on Wednesday, February 12.
They will be on display at Sew Complete, before being distributed to Youth With a Mission and Apple Pregnancy Center, Inc., in Eau Claire. Youth With a Mission missionaries are currently working with the homeless population in San Antonio, TX, and Apple Pregnancy Center is working locally with new Mothers and families.
The Grand Prize is a $100 Cash Award from WWIB Radio (the judges chose the Grand prize winner from the first place quilts from the Bed quilt and Crib quilt categories).
Other prizes include gift certificates from Sew Complete.
We are very grateful to all who have participated in this endeavor in the past. Hundreds of quilts have been given to people who really need them over the years.
Sewing Club meetings for September are cancelled. All Club memberships will be extended one month.
Meanwhile, we have created this reversible table runner on our serger. We hope you find time to try it and send pictures if you do!

If you prefer a sewing machine runner, the following is the reversible runner we made at Izzy's birthday party last June.
When we can start up our regular classes again, the reversible Izzy runner will be offered in "Beyond the Basics", and the serger runner can be made in our "Serger Fun Club".
The featured Class is Serger Fun Club. This is a great place to expand your serger skills using a variety of serger techniques and oftentimes decorative thread. Everyone chooses their own project each time, and we help each person as needed with thread choices, techniques and tension.
