2016 Q1 FAL Winners

2016 button 500 best
Today is the day we are announcing the winners for the First Quarter of the FAL. Those of us who are lucky enough to be hosts this year have had the fortunate experience to be inspired by all the finishes of the first quarter – a record breaking 838!!
If you are low on inspiration or maybe your sewing mojo has been missing lately, we highly recommend you visit some of the finishes from Q1.
Rhonda is going to email all of you winners over the weekend, unless you email her first after reading this. Rhonda will need to hear back from the winners by Friday, April 23 so that she can arrange to get your prize to you, and if she does not hear from you by then she will pick an alternate.

Thank you again to our generous sponsors. Without further ado, the winners – each picked by the random number generator – of the Q1 FAL prizes are:
