SEPTEMBER 4, 2021
We’re having a “Quilting Room/Studio” SUPERLATIVE SCAVENGER HUNT”!! So, head on into your sewing room, closet, under your bed or where ever you store you items and start gathering them together. Some items will be too large to bring with you so be sure to take a picture. You don’t need an actual photograph, just make a copy from your computer. Other items (marked by an asterisk *) in the list need to be brought to the meeting. When you arrive at the guild meeting you will be assigned to a group. You will be able to combine items to get the best score. There will be judges, so of course there will be PRIZES!!!!!
Here is a list of the items for the scavenger hunt:
