Are you interested in making new friends and swapping a completed project - then this swap is for you. You can make anything you feel comfortable making and will receive whatever your partner makes best in return. (This doesn't have to be the same type of project.)
Description: Holiday Quilting in the New Year Swap
Sign up deadline: October 30, 2011
This is a swap that would enable you to be paired up with another ‘Quilting Pal’ and swap a quilted item that each has made. It can be either machine or hand quilted. The Quilting Pals would know who each other is and can chat about their projects throughout the whole month. Projects swapped do not need to be the same item - so you can make whatever you make best. This will be the final swap of the year.
Beginner quilters as well as experienced quilters are invited to join. Every attempt will be made to match you up with a quilter who is at the same level of experience. (If an experienced quilter would like to be matched with a beginner and to be his/her mentor, please let me know.)
If you are international, feel free to join!
If you are interested in joining, please send me a Private message with the following information.

This form will be given to your swap partners. Partners may choose to exchange additional information about such things as color preferences, specific type of project, etc. Partners are reminded that this is a swap. Please avoid issuing too many specifications as though you were placing an order with a commercial business. The elements of mystery and surprise are at least half the fun.
The cost limit on this is to be $15 (USA) excluding postage.
Sign up will close October 30, 2011. The names will be paired up by October 31, 2011. Partners are responsible for keeping in touch during the month to keep each other updated on the progress of the project. Anyone not completing and sending projects - will be given a poor swap rating and not be able to participate in this swap in the future,
All of the standard rules that apply to swaps apply. The rules were updated on 8 Dec 2010, so please make sure to check them before signing up.
Neither project will be sent out/exchanged until both are done. Partners will agree on a specific date on which each will put their package into the mail. Unless otherwise agreed by both partners, the projects should all be done and in the mail by December 15, 2011. You must notify coordinator when all items have been shipped and received so records can be updated.
