WCW Bingo-A-Long 2020

February Bingo winner - please contact us to claim your prize!

We are so impressed with everyone’s progress on Bingo! Keep posting your projects in the discussion threads. We have opened a March Bingo thread for newly finished Bingo rows!

Rules for Bingo

  • Declare your two personal challenges in the Chatter thread if you want to play - be sure to tag Kelsey or Glenda so we see your post!

  • You must create 24 unique projects, no double dipping. Your personal challenges require their own project, even if they are variations on existing squares.

  • You must have Ravelry project pages for all your projects

  • You need to be a member of the Wet Coast Woolies Group in order to qualify for a prize.

Your challenges cannot be the same as things that are already on the board, unless you plan to do two of those things. Someone is making three Christmas stockings, for example; one is for the ‘winter holiday’ item, the other 2 are for the challenge square.

You can keep moving around your FOs until you declare a completed row. Once you claim a row, those items have to stay in their assigned squares!

In Episodes 89, 90, and 91, we gave some notes on special squares. There are also a lot of questions (and answers!) in the Bingo 2020 registration thread, and the January/February Chatter Thread. Ask us if you are unsure about anything - be sure to tag us so that we don’t miss your question.
