President’s Challenge (Project) Fall 2021
Christmas always presents us with the opportunity to do something nice for those less fortunate. My fall President’s Challenge can work two ways – a project to make for someone on your Christmas gift list, or something to donate to a worthy cause. The due date for the challenge is before the December 9th meeting.
Simply put, it is a GIFT BAG, with some aspect of quilting present, e.g. appliqué design, a pieced quilt block, or a pretty fabric, quilted as you see fit. The size is up to you, as what you put in it will help to determine this. It may have a drawstring closure or handles as a tote bag.
If your intention is to donate the gift bag, I ask you to add a toiletry item for an adult gift bag, or a book to a children’s themed bag. Those who do not wish to participate in making a bag, might bring items as above to put into the gift bags to make them actual gifts. I am looking at different organizations to receive the bags.
Monthly Meeting Prize Draws
The Prizes & Promotions Committee will once again be holding draws for fabulous prize baskets at our monthly meetings. For the nominal price of $15, you get a chance at 3 draws per month for 5 months (September 2021 to January 2022 inclusive).
To allow our members time to purchase their tickets, the September 2021 draws will be made at the October 2021 meeting (along with the October draws). In other words, if you make your purchase after the September 16th meeting but before the October 20th meeting, you will still be eligible for the September draws.
To make your purchase, just log in and the item will appear just below this post. Purchases are limited to 1 per person. Draws are made by random selection using your membership number so please make sure you enter it on the check out form.
