Complete Unfinished Projects for Store Credit

We want you to finish your substantially unfinished quilt projects and if you do, we will give you a $5 gift certificate to the store. If you donate the project to Quilts of Valor or Community service, we will give you another $5 gift certificate. You can register up to 5 projects. When
complete, bring them in and show them to us and get your gift certificate. Each unfinished quilt needs to be completed by July 1, 2019 for this program. Projects that just need bindings will not be included in this challenge! We have created special classes to help you finish your quilts. Sign up with the teacher who taught the class originally.
