What's Happening

 

 The 31st Annual WWIB/Sew Complete "Warmth from Wisconsin" Quilt Contest quilts are now packed up and on their way to their final owners.

They are 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.

Congratulations to Kay Weinzirl, who took first place on the bed size quilt and is also the Grand prize winner. Alice Weickelt took second place and Norma Klotz third place in the bed size category. Janice Bates took first and third place for the crib size quilts and Sue Kulig took second place for a crib size quilt. Thirty quilts were entered and donated this year--a record!  Thank you to all who participated!

First place Crib Quilt


  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.


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 included 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
Sewing Club meetings for Summer 2021 are cancelled.  All Club memberships will be extended to reflect the time frame that we have not had Club meetings. We anticipate the probability of resuming Club Meetings and all other classes and events in September 2021.
Meanwhile, enjoy these projects shared by Jeri.












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 2 years ago.

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".
