Quilt Club Winners!
Look how excited Kathryn Mabey is! She just won a Sew Fun Elna Sewing Machine! Provided by Corvallis Sewing and Vacuum Center, Kathryn won Grandma's Quilt Club raffle for those having perfect attendance at last year's Quilt club.
Everyone who attended at least 11 classes last year was entered into a drawing for three amazing prizes: a sewing machine, a $200 gift certificate, and a chance to have your Quilt Club quilt professionally quilted. Kathryn won the sewing machine. Sarah Miller won the gift certificate, and Leona Wilson won the opportunity to have her quilt professionally quilted.
Our next club begins September 8, 9 and 10. We're going To Grandma's House! You know, "over the river and through the wood." But wait a minute: what are we going to do when we get there? Turns out, Grandma's are an endless source of fun-filled activities. They tell stories of adventure, growth and wonder--and those delicious treats aren't bad either. This year's Quilt Club, To Grandma's House is organized around 12 classic children's stories that have been popular since the late 19th and early 20th century.
Themed block patterns, a newly designed newsletter, and stories from Grandma Rachel are only part of the fun. This year, we're also offering discounts with club-only specials, a complimentary coupon book, additional chances to win door prizes, extra demos and tons more fun.
Quilt block kits are available in four color schemes: 1930s, 19th Century, Batiks, and Red/White/Black--you know, as in what is black and white and read all over? A newspaper or book! Pick as many colorways as you like. If you come to class, blocks are $5.00 per month per colorway. Sessions include door prize drawings, demonstrations, show and tell, and fun, fun, fun!
Special Door Prizes: Attend at least 11 sessions this year and you will be entered into a drawing to win one of three fabulous prizes: 1) a sewing machine; 2) your quilt top professionally quilted; and 3) $200 gift card to Grandma's Attic.
Grandma's Quilt Club is a fun way to learn about new products, participate in door prize drawings, be with friends and collect quilt blocks. You must pre-register for this class. For details on how you can participate, click here.
