The 30th Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest is now officially open.
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 due by 4 p.m., Saturday, February 8th, 2020.
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 will be 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 and possibly some other local businesses.
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.
The next Sewing Club meetings will be held Saturday, November 2nd, at 10 a.m.; and Tuesday, November 5th, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Jeri Lijewski will be our guest Club presenter. She will show projects using a variety of techniques and using helpful accessories, tools and notions. It is always a treat to see what Jeri shares with us! Club members, your reservation for your preferred time helps us plan for seating and refreshments. Feel free to bring your show-and-tell items, as we are all inspired by what you are doing, too.
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.
