Join the 2016 UFO Club

(it's free!)

Welcome to our second annual UFO (unfinished objects) Club - you can be a winner! Here is how it will work: throughout January, come in and sign up to be a club member.  You should bring in what you need to finish (up to 10 projects), with your completed registration page(s). As you finish phases of your projects, bring your show-and-tell to earn your points.  

On April 1 (no fooling!) we will calculate your points, and announce the UFO winners. First prize wins a $50 gift certificate, second prize wins a $30 gift certificate and third prize wins a $10 gift certificate!  But wait, there's more...

Since you will be a card-carrying member of the UFO club, you will get a 10% discount on backing fabric, binding fabric, batting, longarm quilting, and even thread for any registered projects, good through March 31, 2016.  Even if you don't win for the most points, you win by getting a nice discount on what you intend to finish!  This is a fun way to beat the winter blues, and an easy way to start a positive New Year's Resolution, don't you think?

New this year:  We will have two categories!  UFOs are 3600 square inches or larger, and "Little UFOs" are 200 - 3599 square inches. Projects are deemed UFOs if the project has been started before registration. 

Point Assignment:

Awaiting a label: worth 5 points for both sizes

Awaiting binding only:  worth 10 points for UFO, 5 points for Little UFO

Awaiting quilting (hand or machine):  worth 20 points for UFOs, 10 points for Little UFOs

Awaiting final piecing to finish top (putting rows together or adding borders):  worth 10 points for UFOs, 5 points for Little UFOs

Awaiting mid-project piecing (putting blocks into rows, sewing rows together, etc.):  worth 10 points for UFOs, 5 points for Little UFOs

Awaiting initial piecing (finishing of blocks): worth 10 points for UFOs, 5 points for Little UFOs

Point assignment (how many points your project can earn) will be confirmed by the Cary Quilting Company staff.  

The maximum points available for any one project is 65 for each UFO, and 35 for each Little UFO.

You can get started by downloading and completing your registrations here

We hope you decide to play along!
