UFO Challenge 2018 (You have the choice of participating or not in this challenge, no worries!)
Pick (12) projects you want to finish this year. It can be a new kit, or one already started. Make a list from 1 to 12. Fill in the name of the project, finished size, and description of where you are on the project beside the number. At each meeting, we will randomly draw a number from 1-12. That will be the number of the project you will work on that next month. If you feel the need to change the order of the project, that is fine, but it must be on the initial Challenge form. At the next meeting, fill in your progress. If completed, bring to show & tell for everyone to see. If fully completed, you will receive (3) extra tickets for any project under 200" (all sides measured and added together) or (6) extra tickets for anything above 201". Please bring us a copy of your 12 UFO Projects List, for us to keep, to the January meeting to be eligible to participate in our UFO Challenge! Remember, only one project per month! I'm sure all of us can find 12 projects in a little over a week! Ready, Set, Go!! Don't forget to bring a finished UFO to the January meeting!!
***There will be a one-time only grace period of turning your Challenge List in by February 6th, if you haven’t been notified of the new Challenge.

Greetings from Designer Fabrics
Happy New Year!! Well, ready or not, the new year is upon us! Filled to the brim with new adventures around each corner!! For me, it is the challenge to keep up... Tomorrow the next session of Top Your Table Club begins! And Wednesday, I pack for our first vending opportunity of the year! Off to Richardton for a great group of ladies I look forward to seeing each year! Just wishing I had a couple more days to organize MY projects for the weekend... Guess I'll just have to be a little quieter when I stay up late and get up early to squeeze a few more moments out of the day! Good thing my husband can't hear very well...
Ooh, check out our newly updated website! With the new move and the new signage, it was time for a change... I hope you like it as much as I do! Designer Fabrics
All the NEW items into the shop & the Events reminders are being posted so you can keep track of us on Facebook! Just in case you don't have extra time to peruse the website & want a general overview of what has been happening!! I'll try & post pictures of our whereabouts when possible!!
Upcoming events... January 9th~ Top Your Table Club 2018! This club is scheduled to meet at 5:30pm on the second Tuesday of the month. Cost of the club is the purchase of the book we will be featuring- Tablerunner Bliss by Sherri Falls! It is jam packed with projects, of which we will pick (12) and showcase one per month. Join us for a night out of inspiration, show & tell, and some fun!!
