Spring WIP Challenge: You can still sign up for our Work In Progress challenge at our April meeting. For the spring challenge you may sign up for as many projects as you like, and you have to pay $1 for each entry. Your items must be completed by our June meeting and if they are you'll be entered to win!

For every shop that you visit with the guild you will receive a stamp/sticker in your Shop Hop passport that enters you for a fabric store gift card in September! The more shops you hop to, the more chances to win.
