2017 UFO CHALLENGE!
Un-Finished Objects, that is!
Make a list of all the projects you hope to finish this year.
Turn in that list to Catania by March 31st,
PLUS $1 for each project on your list.
Once you finish something from your list,
either bring your finished projects to "Sew & Tell" at guild
OR post a picture on the guild's private (click here>>) Facebook page,
indicating that it is from your list.
You'll not only receive your $1 back for that project,
your name will be entered into a drawing for the $$ remaining in the pot!
The deadline is guild meeting on December 7th! Good Luck!
UPDATE: Congratulations to Tamara Ellis for winning the remaining $113 in the pot!
