The 31st Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest Quilt Contest officially starts on October 1, 2020. 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 must include a "Warmth from Wisconsin" starter square from Sew Complete. The starter square must be included in the quilt top to qualify for the contest. There are many different colors and styles of the starter blocks, so you will want to stop in at Sew Complete to choose one to go with your quilt. The finished quilts need to be delivered to Sew Complete by Saturday, February 13th, 4 p.m. and will be judged on Wednesday, February 17th, 2021. 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.
Club Sewing Club meetings for October are cancelled. All Club memberships will be extended one month. Meanwhile, enjoy these projects shared by Jeri.
Class Spotlight 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.
