2017 WIP Challenge

2017 duClay Chapter WIP Challenge

duClay is offering the WIP Challenge for the fifth year in 2017!  In 2016, Carol P won "1/2 the pot".  Congratulations Carol!

Step 1 - Choose up to 10 items that you want to finish between January 1 and our annual December Holiday party. The project can be one you haven't started yet and can be any size.  WIPs should be no more than 75% completed.  

Step 2 – Place a value on each item that you hope to finish. Your commitment pledges can range from $1-$5 for an ornament and $1-$20 for everything else. 

NOTE: To be considered “finished”, ornaments must be completely assembled and ready to hang on a tree. Larger pieces are not required to be framed to be considered finished.

Step 3 – Complete your Challenge form and give it to Kerrie along with a check payable to duClay for the amount of your commitment pledges.

NEW FEATURE coming in 2017:   Starting in 2017 we are including the finishing of an etui/box/basket with a set of smalls as a separate item on your challenge list.  The finishing must be done by the stitcher in order to be considered as a completed challenge item.

NEW FEATURE FOR 2015 and continued in 2016:  Members will be able to "swap" one project on their challenge list for a project not on their list.  Even exchange without any change to pledge funds.  Timing at the discretion of the WIP Challenge Chair but will be approximately mid-year.


Step 4 - When you finish a project, notify the WIP Challenge Chair.  At the end of the year, they will conduct a final touch base to ensure an accurate record of all finishes.

Step 5 - At the December Holiday party there will be a drawing for half of the total amount collect.  For each project on your list that has been completed, the member will receive tickets for each dollar committed towards the project. Example:  $3 pledged for a finished project will result in 3 tickets being entered into the drawing for that member.


Note:  The remaining funds are kept in the Chapter coffers as this is our major fundraiser for the year.
