Won't You Join Us?
We have scraps. Lots of scraps in fact. Many are in strip format from trimming the beginning of the bolt. The rest are left overs from the end of the bolt, too small to sell as is but plenty big enough to sew with. We thought about selling scrap bags, but thought again. You've got your own scraps to deal with, right?
Here's what we've decided to do instead: a Sew Fresh Scrap Quilting Bee. We'd like 16 people to join us. We'll send an assortment of Sew Fresh scrap fabric to you. More than enough to complete a 12.5 x12.5" unfinished block. You make a block (we'll give you a month to complete), send it back to SFF and keep the rest of the scraps. Beginners are welcome, block can be the style of your choice and your commitment is to only one block, one month. We'll assemble the blocks and quilt them then donate it to a charitable organization such as Project Linus and Hopes and Dreams Quilt Challenge for ALS. We'd like to do this several times this year starting in February. Sound like fun? Want to play along with us? Send an email to info(at)sewfreshfabrics.com if you're interested.
* First round is filled. Please continue to email if you'd like to be on the list for the next round. It may start sooner than we think if we continue to get such a great response. Quilters are awesome!! :)
** Wow! Second round is filled too. We'll keep taking names as long as we have willing participants. Thanks for your patience. Please make sure we can get your email from Blogger or send an email to info[at]sewfreshfabrics.com. There are a few volunteers that we can't get a hold of. Thanks again!!
