2016 FAL Q1 Winners!

Finish A Long 2016

Today we're announcing the winners of the prizes from the First Quarter of the FAL. Those of us who are lucky enough to be hosts this year have been inspired by all the finishes of the first quarter - a record breaking 838!!

If you are low on inspiration or your sewing fairy has gone on a lengthy holiday, then we highly recommend you visit some of the finishes from Q1.

Rhonda is going to email all of the winners over the weekend, unless you email her first after reading this.  She will need to hear back from the winners by Friday 23rd April so she can arrange to get your prize to you.  If she does not hear from you by then, she will pick an alternate - please don't miss out on your prize for the sake of an email!

Without further ado, the winners (each picked by the random number generator) of the Q1 FAL prizes, which are provided by our generous sponsors (thank you!), are:

I am having so much fun hosting the FAL with all the other global hosts and so far, so good.  We had record breaking finishes for Q1 and I can't wait to see how everyone does in Q2 - good luck!


Archie would also like to wish you luck with quarter two, but I had to promise that he could straight back to sleep afterwards!
What's that you say?
*grumbles slightly at having his mid-morning snooze interrupted*  Good luck, everyone!  Work hard!  And congratulations to the Q1 winners!  And thank you to the sponsors!  *goes back to sleep*

Thanks for popping in!  (I'm hoping that I'll be able to post the final Summersville catch-up post next weekend...don't hold your breath, though!)
