I remember playing Bingo at birthday parties and at school and I was always afraid that I'd miss the number called because I couldn't scan the card fast enough. I do have one fabulous bingo memory - in 1997 my first husby Dan and I were visiting a friend in Seattle and she took us to play Bingo. I won $100! I promptly spent it on embroidery supplies. :D
Even as a kid, what I liked most about the game was the game sheet. There's something so pleasing about rows of numbers. Nowadays I also enjoy the various brand names that are sometimes printed on top - like this Trans-o-gram specimen. The color's great too!
I've used the bingo numbers, markers and cards countless times in my work - sometimes they're just the thing I need to finish a piece. They're so versatile and fun!
