Magazine, Book and Patterns Sales

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.

Linda. I would like to be put on a waiting list in the event there is a cancellation. I understand that if there is a cancellation you will give me the name and contact information for the individual and it is MY responsibility to make financial arrangements to take her place. 

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.

Calico owns a GO! Big electric cutter. It is available for use by Calico members during regular sewing times. Click HERE for the equipment (cutters, mats, etc.) list.

2018 Activities

For those of you who have signed up, remember, the fee is NON REFUNDABLE. If you find you cannot attend, you are welcome to make arrangements for another quilter to take your spot.


Please help Linda make this a fun event again. If you have some items you could donate for "give aways," please bring them to Linda at a meeting.
