PFAFF’S Block Lotto and funding for our 2013 festival



If you haven’t been to the meeting (or read your newsletter – bad, very bad!!) and remember or have seen this post on our blog HERE and is still wondering what it is all about, let’s quickly recap.

I have to start by reminding all readers that this is STRICTLY FOR OUR GUILD MEMBERS AND LOCAL PFAFF MACHINE OWNERS ONLY.

The basic idea is:  you make a block according to the rules, pay a small fee (towards the festival) and stand a chance to win all the blocks made – just like the national lottery, we just play it with blocks!!

Every term (in our newsletter and on our blog) PFAFF will give us the instructions to a new block. 
If you need a full size pattern, go down to PFAFF and buy a pattern for R5,00 – in some cases              however you will only need instructions and then you’ll pay for every completed block you enter.
If you only bought one pattern but made several blocks you’ll have to pay entry fee for every block you hand in.
You do need to use at least ONE PFAFF fabric in your block, so while there buy yourself a fat quarter if you cannot remember which of your stash was bought from PFAFF.
Complete your block/s and hand it back to PFAFF.  The deadline for the term’s block is the DAY BEFORE our next quarterly meeting.  NO BLOCKS will be accepted at the meeting. Your name is then added to those who stand a chance to be the lucky winner.
The draw will be done during our next quarterly meeting.

This term we are making a single Sunbonnet Sue block (or more) which should be on a WHITE background, HAND appliquéd and finish 8 inch square (your block when handed in should therefore be 8½” x 8½”).   
                                                                                                                                                                          
So how’s that for a nice threesome?  Quilting, anticipating to win and giving towards our festival.

So let’s support this and get to PFAFF as soon as possible!!
