    August 2019 Mug Rug Swap (Makers Choice)

    August 2019 Mug Rug Swap —

    Welcome to the August Mug Rug Swap! This month’s theme is: Makers Choice

    Signup begins; 20 July 2019

    Signup closes: 31 July 2019 at midnight

    Partners will be assigned no later than 2 August 2019

    Deadline to Mail: International 10 August 2019/ all others 20 August 2019 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 appliqué 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 for emergency’s only to me, Armylady2012, by July 31st. 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!

    Remember 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.

    Sewnclog....little rundown more than I thought from my vacation. It took 12 hours for a 2 hour flight. The flight did only take the 2 hours, but everything before and after was just insane. Then when we get home, my brother who was supposed to be taking care of my dogs...didn't do a very well job. And he lives right across the street from me. So one thing I had to do upon arriving home at midnight was mop my bathroom floor before I could even walk across it to take my shower.
    Anyway....I will mail off your mug rug on Saturday and send the confirmation number. I didn't send it while in Phip because my husband had actually misplaced it. Ughhhhh

    Got your message Cuppy and your mug rug will go in the mail Tuesday before I leave. So glad I caught up with you before I left! I was afraid I would be late. Enjoy that FL weather. Hope it's not as hot and sticky as NC.

    PS - ArmyLady2012 - I tried to message you but is said your mailbox was full. It must be a full time job keeping us all straight.

    I mailed to mmonohon yesterday. I know, it is a huge shock that I don't have to run to the post office on the 20th, LOL.
