2019 Christmas Ornament Challenge

Spruce It Up's 2019 Christmas Ornament Challenge
We're in our 6th year!!

Please check the new page up there ^ to find the 2019 ornaments!

 Today (Sept 30th) is the last day for delivery of your ornament to be considered in the early-bird draw... you have until 4pm today to deliver. Draw will happen tomorrow. The winner will win a Christmas tree/white truck panel on red background! Quite cute!

Ornaments will be collected until October 31st. You can hand-deliver or mail (post-marked before the 31st... please send us a photo).

This year the money collected from the sale of the ornaments will be donated to Victoria's Quilts, an organization that provides a comfort quilt to anyone with a cancer diagnosis. It's very worthwhile and they are in constant need of supplies, fabrics, backings and batting. Last year in our province alone, they gave out over 900 quilts.
