GUILD PROJECTS FOR 2017
The U. F. O. Challenge
Get prepared for the First Annual(?) UFO Challenge!
Are you up to your ears in unfinished objects (UFOs)? Would great prizes and the title of “Queen of UFOs” be incentives for you to get your sewing machine out and put the pedal to the metal? (Ok, maybe not so great prizes but definitely the reward of finishing and the respect and adulation of all your quilting peers.) If this sounds like fun then you are going to love this challenge. Here is how it will work:
Bring your UFOs to the Guild meeting September 23rd, or any meeting before the second meeting in May (that gives you 8 months!). There will be no limit to how many you bring and agree to finish during that time period. The person who successfully completes the most UFOs and collects the most points by the end of May (and proves to us that they are done!) will be crowned the Queen (or King) of UFOs.
Here are the guidelines:
· Bring your UFO(s) to a meeting. You will fill out a quick form naming your project(s) to be completed. You must have entered your project on this form for it to be counted in your total at the end of May. Entries will be accepted until the first meeting in May.
· Bring completed projects to show at Guild. The date of completion will be entered on your form.
· Points, up to three total, will be awarded to each project based on its size and how much work is necessary for completion. I am the sole point “Decider” - or whomever I appoint to be the Decider in my absence.
· The second meeting in May will be the crowning of the champion and there will be rewards for second and third place….and for everyone because finishing is its own reward.
