Day 8 Volunteer – Lori – Won a Magnet

Filed under: ANG Seminar 2012

I wanted to stitch something to thank all the volunteers but unfortunately that’s too many people to personally stitch one for each person. So, I decided to stitch one for each day & hold a daily drawing – one chance for every hour worked. This is for the Day 8 winner. It is a gold piece measuring 1&1/2″ diameter with a design area of 1″ diameter. I got it on eBay & placed a small magnet under a piece of red vinyl canvas (from crafterspride.com under fabrics) on the back to fit the space.
