Nine Patch Block Lotto
The Block Lotto starts at the April 13th meeting. If you choose to participate, you will receive a nine patch block pattern and the color for the block. For every block you make and turn in, you will receive a lottery ticket. The lottery winner(s) receive a set of blocks to make a top. The lottery will run every other month.
Kay R. is in charge of the UFO effort in 2018-19 The fee to join is $5 and you may join at any time during the year. For every completed UFO brought to Show and Tell, you got "1 credit." For example, if you showed 5 items at a meeting, you get 5 credits meaning your name gets entered 5 times. Each credit is a chance for you to win the drawing at the end of the year when a name is pulled from the jar. The winner gets to take home 90% of the total fees collected and the club the remaining10%. The more completed UFOs you shared, the higher your chances of winning!
Note: You get to decide what "finished" means for your project.

Charleen M. is in charge of our magazine, book, and pattern sales. Members donate these items which Charleen displays on tables at each meeting. Members may purchase any item for $0.25. Many members find this a great way to "recycle" their materials and often "re-donate" when finished with the purchased item.
Calico Cut-Ups offers ongoing activities members may choose to join throughout the year. Most can be joined at any time, but some have a specific starting date or enrollment limitation. See each activity description for details. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the Retreat pictures.
