Are you ready to design a quilt for a good cause? Would you like to win a prize for a quilt that you or your quilting group designed? Freedom in Christ Prison Ministry (FIC) is sponsoring a quilt contest and YOU could be a winner!
Here’s the timeline:
- Registration forms are due to our office NO LATER than September 30th. Please enclose a $10 registration fee. The fee will help to offset our expenses for the contest.
- To help ease mailing expenses for you, we have several drop-off locations throughout the State for you to deliver your completed quilt to. We will outline those drop-off points in an upcoming article. The due date for all completed quilts is by October 21st.
- Photographs of all quilts will appear on the website for online voting. To keep the voting fair, please note that a person can only vote for ONE quilt. Votes will be checked for duplicates! Voting will occur on the website from November 1 through 18. We will announce the winners at the end of November.
Prizes for the winning quilts are as follows:
- 1st place – $200
- 2nd place – $100
- 3rd place – $75
After the contest, all quilts will become the property of FIC to use in a silent auction in February 2013 to raise money to help fund the ministry. FIC is a
501(c)3 organization, which means any donation to the ministry is tax-deductible. Quilts are deductible at fair market value. You will receive a statement at the end of the year for the donation of your quilt.
Below are the links to documents for the contest. We would appreciate your printing out the flyer and registration forms to share with friends and family!
We are so excited to see all the beautiful quilts you will create for the contest and ultimate fundraiser in February 2013. Your participation in this fun event will help change lives!
Let the quilting begin!
