From now until October 1st we have the 2016 MQ ONLINE MYSTERY QUILT!
Join our 2016 Mystery Quilt and get a new clue emailed to you on the first day of the month from January to October.
Cost for Members is $30 and Nonmembers is $40, and you will receive page 1 and 2 (cover and fabric instructions) in your confirmation email. Starting January 1, at noon you will receive your first clue. The next clue will be emailed at noon on February 1 and so on.
Use your own fabric, use scraps or buy the kit that has been specially made by Crafty Planet in NE Minneapolis. Sign up at any time! If you sign up after January 1, your first clue will not be sent to you until Debra Svedberg is in the office on Tuesdays through Fridays. After that all emails will automatically be sent to you on the first of the month. Same goes for signing up any time later, when Debra is in the office you will receive all email clues so you will be caught up with everyone else. There is also a private facebook group you can join. When you register there will be a field to fill in if you wish to join.
Come join the fun!
