Fundraising for the IEMQG – Craft Fair Items

One of our top priorities for the IEMQG this year is creating items for our fundraising efforts. We will participate in two craft fair events later this year and really need our guild membership’s assistance in creating what we will sell! The revenue created through these craft fair sales will be what builds our events and programs for 2020.

Each month we have an item we will focus on making, the complete list is noted below. February is complete as we do not need any more coasters right now. All the other months listed we still need items made. In the event you are short on fabric to create items, let us know as we have some donated fabric available. Links are offered to take you to patterns/tutorials to create these items.

Completed items can be given to any Board member at our meetings. We appreciate your participation and are available should you have any questions! Happy sewing!
