What is a UFO? An Un-Finished Object!
A UFO is anything you have started or stashed! You may have bought the kit or a pattern and fabric and just never got started on it. Or you may have started, ran out of time or encountered a problem, and put it down! As with many of our projects, it's just hard to find the time (or enthusiasm) to get back to them. So any project you've put in a drawer, the top of the closet, under the bed or on a shelf could qualify as a Un-Finished Object for this Challenge!
Just follow the directions below and come see us at the shop. "UFO Show and Tell" meetings will continue throughout 2015 and will be at 9:00 a.m. the first Saturday of every month. (Check our UFO for dates.)
Here's how the UFO Challenge works.
How to Participate:
(Please fill out this form and bring it with you!)
What's In It For You:
Win a Grand Prize at the end of the year (and yes, you'll be entered every time you finish your project on time!).
What Can You Win?
Monthly Prizes: These will vary each month but will include gadgets like rotary blades, needles, accessories or gift certificates. More than one prize will be awarded at each "UFO Show and Tell."
Join together with other folks who enjoy hand stitching--embroidery, applique, English paper piecing, etc... There will be a time of stitching, a time of sharing, and a time of learning.
Quilts of Valor:
QOV is an organization whose goal is to wrap every Veteran who has been touched by war in a quilt to honor his/her service to our country. Our group works diligently to make quilts that will then be awarded to service men and women who have been nominated for a Quilt of Valor.
