The Awesome Name Tag Challenge

The Awesome Name Tag Challenge!

For all members who do not have a sewn name tag, or current members who want a new one .  We want to know you are so we can say hello and welcome you !

So, what are the rules?  First, make sure your name is large and clearly readable. You can also squeeze in your internet handle or the name of your personal brand or website (if you have one) so that everyone can find you out there on the web and Instagram, etc . Make sure it's comfortable to wear ... I am making my with a little pocket on the back . And, you can always make a matching lanyard too !
Feel free to use any technique for your name tag from piecing to appliqué to embroidery.  There is no size limit or shape constraint, so use your creativity to create something that showcases your style as a modern quilter.

Your finished name tag is due at the next guild meeting , May 3, 2017,  & all members who proudly show off their creation will be entered into a raffle for a gift certificate at the Sewing Studio !

If you know you won't be able to make it to the May meeting and still want to enter to win that fabulous prize,  just post a pic of your name tag in the Name Tag comment section here, or to our
members only Facebook Page here by midnight on May 2, and we'll include you in the drawing at the meeting.  Check in on the blog on May 4 to see if you've won a prize!

Please remember that while anyone can join in on the fun, only members are eligible to receive prizes. If you'd like to learn more about membership please click here ...We'd love for you to join us!
