    Quilting in the New Year - February 2012

    Do you like receiving a mystery project in the mail - then it's time to sign up for the next month of Quilting in the New Year Swap - This is a swap especially designed to swap a variety of completed projects. These projects can be anything from a tote bag, table topper, wall hanging, sweatshirt, sewing case, set of blocks or pin cushion to whatever you choose to make. It's a swap designed to get to know your partner, share ideas - then make her something she might like.

    Description: Quilting in the New Year Swap – February 2012

    Sign up deadline: January 30, 2012

    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 would just be for February 2012. You would be signing up for one month at a time.

    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 a 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.

    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Level of Quilting Experience:
    Can you mail international?
    Type of Project you'd like to make:
    Do you smoke or have in house Pets:
    Allergies:

    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 January 30, 2012. The names will be paired up by February 1, 2012. 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.

    In addition:
    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 February 29, 2012. You must notify coordinator when all items have been shipped and received so records can be updated.

    This project has been approved by PatriceJ.

    Coordinated by: immemother
    (If you want to be added to this group activity, then please send a private message to the coordinator.)

    "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."
