UFO Challenge
Saturday, February 12th- May 7th 2022

By request, (actually DEMAND)... We are starting a Winter/Spring UFO Challenge.
UFO = UnFinished Object

Here’s the deal. Bring in your UFOs starting this Saturday, February 12th. You have until February 26th @4:00pm to register.  We will register each one and log them into your personal page in our special UFO Challenge binder. Then, get busy sewing! Each time you finish a UFO, bring it back to the shop. We will mark it complete and you will be entered to win (see below). The more UFOs you finish the more chances you have to win.

Special UFO Registration Days
Bring your UFOs in this Saturday, (February 12) or Monday/Tuesday or February 14 & 15th) and you’ll receive 20% off any fabric or batting you purchase that you’ll be using to complete any/all of your UFOs.


• UFO must be a quilt, wall hanging, table runner, purse, or tote bag. It can also be a garment. Yes, place mats will count, but you have to have at least 4 of them.

• UFO must be started (i.e., fabric and pattern in a bag or a kit you haven’t begun won’t qualify).

• UFO must require at least one hour of work to complete (e.g., six inches left to bind won’t qualify).

• A completed UFO is really complete. (Quilted and bound, for example)

• No UFO registrations after February 26th..

UFO Show and Tell Party
At the First Saturday Breakfast Club in May (May 7th)  we will have a special UFO Show and Tell Party. Bring everything you completed during the Challenge and claim your bragging rights. We’ll draw for the prizes during this party, but you don’t have to be present to win.

When we draw names from all the entries on May 47th, FIVE lucky people will win a yard of fabric/month for a year!  Remember, the more UFOs you finish the greater your chances of winning!



We have scheduled Open Sew Days the 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Tuesdays of each month.
