First let me start out with the exciting news!
We are working on a point system this year. What's that you ask... Well, let me tell you :) We are going to be offering points for certain things this year and at the end of the year whoever has the most points gets a pretty BIG prize!! Worth playing - you bet!! So how do you get points? You need to participate in challenges, events, come to meetings etc. I will be posting a detailed list of how to earn points and how much each thing is worth later. Here are a few ways to get some points for our next meeting.
We are having a Name Tag Challenge. We want to get to know you on a first name basis and the best way to do that is Name Tags!! That and being friendly :) Here are the Rules: It must be a NEW Handmade Modern Name Tag by You. Of course this doesn't necessarily mean hand sewn - it can be machine pieced, paper pieced, appliqué, embroidery, etc. (In other words you can't go out and buy one) It needs to be around 3X5" and your name needs to be legible. Don't get to fancy with the script or we still won't know your name. Ok so if you make a NEW name tag and wear it to February's meeting you get a point. If you are not able to make it to the meeting you can still participate. Upload a picture of your NEW name tag and post it to our Flickr group by midnight on the Wednesday before our meeting and you will get your point. If you have not joined the group yet, please click the link above and ask to join.
Check out all the cool name tags if you need some Inspiration. I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!
