The Details

  • "Big UFOs" are 3600 square inches or larger, and "Little UFOs" are 200 - 3599 square inches.
  • Projects are considered UFOs if the project was started before registration, which is January 1 - 31. "Started" means that the first cuts into the fabric have been made. Untouched kits in the closet don't count! You may have a quilt that just needs binding and a label, or even just a label - those count too!
  • Each person is limited to 10 registered UFOs per year.
  • Only quilts qualify as UFO projects.  Bags, pillows, rugs, etc. don't count for this club, though they are lovely to create and to finish!
  • Your discounts are only to be used for items needed to complete registered projects from Jan 1 - March 31 of the current year. If you submit a registered project to our Longarm Team by 3/31, you can still receive your quilting discount, even if it's not finished by 4/1. If we find that you're abusing your discount, you sadly won't be allowed to participate in the club again and your online discount code will be revoked.
  • No purchase is necessary to be a part of the UFO club or to win.
