    Welcome to Quilting in the New Year Swap – August 2011

    Sign up deadline: August 20, 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 would just be for August 2011. 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 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.

    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:

    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 August 20, 2011. The names will be paired up by August 21, 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.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    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 Sept 30, 2011. You must notify coordinator when all items have been shipped and received so records can be updated.

    We really ARE a good bunch. Don't mind Lindyline, just feed her something and she'll settle back down again. LOL.

    Hmmm yes it is coming up to lunchtime here. There could be some truth in what you're saying.
    Seriously we love having company and we do have fun.

    Yes - we are up to 12. Not bad for the first 2 days.

    We love having everyone join us. You will find that not only do you get a really neat project made just for you - but most have been making great friendships along the way.

    Yep Yep. My partners in the New Year Swap are still chatting with me. :) You get to chat with them during this whole month so that you get to know them. You work out something that is more personalized to you. You can tell them your colors, what you like or don't like....YOU get a choice in this. You work it out together. Remember you don't have to make the same thing as your partner either.

    The items can be big or small. You work out the details with your partner.

    And, if you get somebody like me or lindyline....you'll hints along the way. Teasers....to get those creative juices going. :)
