Each month a popular part of the guild meeting is ‘Block Lotto’. Members are given a short tutorial on making the chosen block which is due the following month. Each block that is made may be entered into the drawing with $1 per block paid to the guild. After a drawing, the lucky winner gets to take all the blocks home! If there are lots of blocks, there may be more winners drawn!
