Do you have what it takes to be a Project Iron Quilter?
Fifteen to twenty contestants will bring their own sewing machines, cutting mats, rulers and rotary cutters. They may bring as much thread as they like but only a small amount of one fabric. In addition they may bring a shoebox full of embellishments and trim if they so desire. At the “starting time” a theme will be announced and contestants will make a grab for fabric from a large “stash” table. They will then have 3 ½ hours (with a break in the middle ) to construct their “masterpiece”. At the end the quilts will be judged, prizes awarded, and the quilts auctioned off for charity.
Please send in an application form and get ready for a fun day.
There will be a number of wonderful prizes in a variety of categories and lots of ribbons. These include a sewing machine, a basket of 75 fat quarters and many many others.
