DNTG Charms Incentive Program 2022-2023

The purpose of this program is to increase member participation in DNTG events.  Members can earn charms during our fiscal year (June-May) by:

  • Participating in any DNTG activity 12 times during the year

  • Completing a workshop, education, program, or GCC project

  • Bringing Show & Tell to a General meeting

  • Posting on our Facebook Group

  • Completing a DNTG annual Stitch-a-long or Sampler project

  • Getting a new member

  • Going to seminars / ReTreat

  • And many more!  

 

There are 17 charms you can collect - and if you came to the September coffee, you are eligible for a bonus coffee cup charm!

Charms will be awarded at the end of every General meeting.  You cannot double dip!  So, if you claim a charm for completing a workshop project, and it’s also on your MAGIC list, you’ll have to decide which charm you want. You may not get two charms for one project – or get multiple of the same charm.  So, if you bring Show & Tell to every general meeting, you’ll only receive one charm for the year.

How Do I Participate?

A card file will be at all General meetings.  Cards are arranged by FIRST name. 

Blank cards are at the back.

  • Find your card

  • Indicate the charms you are eligible for each month

  • List the name of the piece that qualifies for that charm

  • Give your card to Paige Guillory

 

You will receive a keychain with your first charm.

 

Other things to be aware of:

  • MAGIC charms will be awarded in January

  • ReTreat charms will be distributed at retreat

  • The Sampler project this year is to stitch a strawberry

  • The Stitch-a-Long (SAL) project is Christmas Rounds or Mini Stocking Trio

GUIDELINES FOR DNTG CHARM PROGRAM

2022-2023

 

Charms will be awarded at every General meeting.  A member may receive one charm in each category during DNTG’s fiscal year (June-May).  An eligible project must be completed the year it is awarded – it does not matter when the project was started.  A completed project can only receive a single charm – even if it qualifies in multiple categories.
