Posts Tagged ‘Quilting Challenge’
Our challenge quilts are due soon and I am pretty excited about it because quite a lot of people bought the challenge fabric. Remember: they are due the begining of March.
Join our new “Finish-a-Work-in-Progress” challenge. It’s relatively easy: register your UFOs (UnFinished Object) by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in person, check in with us your progress every 6 weeks, and when each project is completed, show-and-tell to receive a gift of fat quarters. The one who finishes the most UFOs by the end of the year 2011, receives a gift certificate. Remember, there are consequences for those who don’t finish… Let the race begin!
Check out the store’s blog for the first UFOs to be submitted! www.sewmaterialistic.blogspot.com
Good luck! 🙂

I think I’ve mentioned it before but I’m going to throw it out again, maybe this time someone will catch it. Anyone interested in starting a guild? Meeting to be held on a weeknight instead of on Saturdays. I know there are a lot of Sabbath observers in Brooklyn that are also quilters. Would someone like to get the ball rolling? We can use the store as a stepping off point. Email me please.
Sorry for the delay, and it’s been a while, but here are more stuff from our Vermont Quilting Trip!
Our group in Woodstock where we all picked up some very cool fabric.
One of the many covered bridges in Vermont.
A quilt show in a trunk. This is the background story: while at the Shelburne, Madi became friendly with a perfect stranger who also happened to be a quilter! She took us to see the covered bridge and than showed us the quilts she had in her trunk because she was having a one woman show!
