The 28th annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth From Wisconsin" quilt contest will officially start on October 2, 2017.  Each year for the past 27 years, WWIB Radio and Sew Complete have teamed together to sponsor a quilt contest with the goal of receiving quilts to be given to those in need.  2018 Recipients will include homeless and needy individuals and families in a San Antonio TX Hispanic community, in conjunction with "YOUTH WITH A MISSION", and Apple Pregnancy Care Center, Inc. in Eau Claire, WI.  There are two categories for  judging the quilts.  Bed size quilts must be 60" x 72" or larger, and Crib size quilts must be at least 46" x 36", but no larger than 60" x 56".  To be eligible for the contest, quilts must have a key "Warmth From Wisconsin" block, obtained from Sew Complete, stitched into the quilt top.  Finished quilts are due at Sew Complete by 4 p.m., Saturday, February 10, 2018.  Judging is expected to take place Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

The Grand Prize is a $100 Cash Award from WWIB Radio (the judges will choose from the first place quilts from the Bed quilt and Crib quilt categories)

Jeri presents at Club

We welcome Jeri Lijewski, guest speaker, to the November Club meeting.  Jeri will show projects using Kraft-Tex, Wool Felt and regular fabric.  She will show us how she used her Scan N Cut to quickly and easily cut out pieces for some of her projects.  Jeri always comes with fun and clever sewing projects and tips.

 The next Club meetings will be held on Saturday, November 4, at 10 a.m. and Tuesday, November 7, at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.  Club members are always encouraged to bring their show-and-tell items, whether it pertains to any theme we have going or not.  We love to see what everyone is doing!   Your reservation for your preferred time will help us with our planning.



Class Spotlight
The featured class is Sunflower Baby Quilt.  This is the perfect opportunity to use embroidery software, applique in the hoop embroidery and machine quilting in the hoop techniques all in one project.  Penny will show you how to use the pattern designs in your software, help you choose appropriate fabric for your design, how to cut the fabric prior to embroidering, and then finishing the quilt with machine embroidery.  There are many design possibilities for this quilt.  It can be made "cute" with faces and stems, or it can be made without faces or stems.  The fabrics can be elegant, funny or anything in between.  We see a lot of holiday gifts coming out of this class! 

This is a 3 session class.  It will meet Thursdays, October 19, 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., October 26 and November 16, 1-4 p.m. You will need your computer for all 3 sessions, and your embroidery machine and module for session 2 and session 3.
