Silent Auction Neighborhood Group Challenge

With our annual Style Show just 3 months away,  I would like to challenge all Neighborhood Groups to consider submitting a group basket to the Silent Auction.  The Shoreview NG started this ‘tradition’ a couple years ago and have found it a great way to do some ‘community service’ for our own great non-profit organization.  With a combined basket, everyone who wants to contribute can do so at their own level, the basket ends up being more interesting due to combined ideas, and it is a way to participate in the annual event even if you cannot attend.  We find it easier to choose a theme and then the ideas start flowing.  One year we had a theme of “Going to Grandma’s” and included various crafty things for grandchildren to do with their grandparents. Last year we pooled our money and decided to purchase an Oliso iron, then added ironing-related items to that focal item.  Remember, the baskets do not need to be sewing-related – think of what YOU would bid on and build on that idea.  There are still after-Christmas deals to be had, so now is a great time to find that focal item!

2018 Style Show President’s Challenge:  FitNice Fits Me!

In the past two years, chapter members have raved about the custom fit patterns they have developed in Nancy Cook’s FitNice System classes.  The Master Tops Fit EVERY Body class was so popular we had to add a second session.  This year I am challenging everyone who attended any of those classes to show us what you did with your master patterns after class.

The rules of the challenge are simple.

  1. Items entered in the challenge be based on FitNice patterns developed at one of the Chapter classes in 2016 or 2017.
  2. Items can be modeled or displayed at the 2018 Style Show.
  3. Winners will be chosen by popular vote the day of the style show.
  4. Prizes will be awarded to one winner for each pants and tops.
