    August 2018 Mug Rug Swap-(At the Zoo-makerís choice)

    August 2018 Mug Rug Swap (At the Zoo-maker’s choice)


    Welcome to the August Mug Rug Swap! This month’s theme is: At the Zoo!

    We all love to go to the zoo so lets use our creativity and bring it to a Mug Rug, think about what is at a zoo and create a beautiful Mug Rug for your Partner.


    Signup begins; 23 July 2018
    Signup closes: 31 July 2018 at midnight
    Mail by dates: International 10 August 2018/ all others 20 August 2018 these dates are firm.

    What is a mug rug? A mug rug is an item you use to place a cup of coffee, tea or soda on, along with a small snack plate/napkin beside it. It’s approximately 9”x8” or larger so both items will fit. Please do not make it smaller than 9”x8” as that is quite small for both items as it is!

    1. You will be assigned a partner. This is not a secret pal swap. Each partner will contact the other partner for addresses. Will you make something abstract, realistic or whimsical? Will you appliquť or paper-piece or just go with regular piecing?

    2. It must be made with 100% quilter’s cotton, with a nice cotton batting in between to protect furniture from possible damage due to heat/cold. Use a binding method you are comfortable with, or practice & learn a new binding technique! Also, the mug rug must be quilted. Remember, this is a gift you are making for someone. Be proud of your work & do your best. And be kind about what you receive. If you have any issues, please work it out with your partner first, before contacting me; communication is key. This board is for all of us to make friends & have fun.

    3. You must send your name, address and phone number to me, Armylady2012, by July 31st. Deadline to send out swaps is August 20th & International is 10 August 2018 don’t forget to send me notice (with tracking number) that you have sent to your partner. Any delays must be shared with me prior to this date. I want everyone to receive a partner’s trade. We should not have to request angels. Again, communication is important. You can be forgiven if something comes up & you notify your partner & me prior to the end of your swap mail date requirement. But if you don’t communicate & don’t send out a mug rug to your partner, you will be locked out of swapping with this group and negative feedback will insure other swap groups know you didn't send.


    4. You are free to include little gifts with your mug rug, handmade or store-bought; it’s up to you. But you are only obligated to send a mug rug. Nothing else is required in this swap.


    5. Any questions? Contact me immediately and I will help get you started.


    6. Please take a photo before you ship your package to your partner, just in case she cannot post a photo. We all want to see photos! But don’t post it until you know your partner has received your package & that she is unable to post a photo.


    7. Also, please let me know if you can mail internationally! This is important, as we have quite a few international swappers who want to join us, & I don’t want anybody to be left out. So if you can ship internationally — even just one time — that would make it more fun for our overseas & Canadian swappers!

    Have fun!




    Sign up today! Send me a PM with your name, address & phone number for emergency use only. Names will be given out on August 1st,. You are required by the board to send things you sign up for, or risk not having the ability to swap again in other swaps. Again, per board rules, anything about your partner or the item they swap to you that does not please you is not to be posted on the board but sent in a PM to me or to your partner to sort out. It’s polite and it’s the right thing to do.

    It's been raining so much here that they had to move the animals at the zoo. Starting to close some of the streets. Golf course under water. Can't wait to head home.

    Hello, everyone. I haven’t posted in a very long time. I’ve stopped into browse once in awhile.
    I think it’s time to jump back in, so please sign me up for this swap.
    Wonder what I can see at the zoo!

    Thanks for the warm welcome. Just as soon as I decide to join in, a family emergency has happened so I must withdraw. But I will join in soon. My MIL is in the hospital in Florida and we may be taking a trip there now. Waiting for an update on her. So please understand.

    Yup, San Diego Zoo has lots of turtles. At least they use to when my Dad took me there. They were those big "ride on" ones.....scared the b-jeezers out of me when I was little
