What's Happening

The quilts entered in the 34th annual "Warmth from Wisconsin" quilt contest are now on display in the lower level and stairwell at Sew Complete.
Each year for the past 34 years, WWIB Radio and Sew Complete have teamed together to sponsor a quilt contest with the goal of receiving crib size and larger quilts to be hand delivered to the homeless and needy in Mexico or, more recently, San Antonio TX Hispanic Community, in conjunction with “YOUTH WITH A MISSION”. In recent years, half of the quilts collected have gone to Apple Pregnancy Care Center, Inc. in Eau Claire. Hundreds of quilts have been collected and delivered over the years. We are very grateful to all who have participated in this endeavor. The missionaries associated with “YOUTH WITH A MISSION” are currently working with individuals in need in the San Antonio, TX Hispanic Community. Again, this year, half of the quilts will be distributed in San Antonio through YOUTH WITH A MISSION. The other half will again be given to Apple Pregnancy Care Center.

There are 2 categories to enter: a smaller quilt, at least 46" x 36" and no larger than 60" x 56" or a bed size quilt 60" x 72" or larger. Participants picked up a "starter" block from Sew Complete. The "starter" block must appear somewhere in the quilt top--it may be altered, but the heart and the words "Warmth from Wisconsin" must remain in tact.
  The grand prize winner will receive a $100 cash award from WWIB.  The judges awarded 3 gift certificates from Sew Complete in each category. For more information, or a complete set of rules and a starter block, stop in or contact Sew Complete. You may also click here for the contest rules.

Welcome to Club! Our ongoing theme for our 2024 Club meetings will be very similar to that of 2023-- “Re-Fashion, Repurpose, Remake, Reuse, Repair”. Of course, we feature many different kinds of projects and techniques beyond the ongoing theme that intertwines throughout the year. Jesse will lead the March Club meetings. She will feature twin needle techniques. Jesse will also talk about "stash busting" and will show a variety of projects. These meetings will be held Saturday, March 2, at 10 a.m.; and Tuesday, March 5, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. You may bring your show and tell items, as we love seeing what you are doing. Your reservation for your preferred time will be helpful for our planning. For more information on Club meeting dates and times look for Sewing Club under the "Classes" tab.
