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. Make as many blocks as you wish. 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!
So excited that Block Lotto is back! Starting with 21-22, we will be using block tutorials available from
