    Christmas/Holdiay Ornament Swap Guidelines
    1. Sign up by October 1, 2010
    Mail on November 1, 2010 so they are there in plenty of time to use and enjoy for Christmas.

    2. Ornament should be handmade. It doesn't *have* to be quilted, but it does have to be handmade.

    3. Each person can do up to two ornaments.

    4. This will be a direct person to person mailing to save postage. I will email you the person (people) that you are sending to by October 5th.

    5. This will be an international swap so if mailing internationally is a concern for you, please let me know in a PM.

    6. If you would like to participate, please PM me the following information once your ornaments are made and ready to be mailed:
    Screen name
    Real name
    Address
    Email address
    # of ornaments that you want to swap (1 or 2)

    7. Make sure that you enclose a note to let your person know who you are !

    8. Please read the guidelines for all swaps on the board at this link http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    9. Have Fun getting ready for the holidays and let your creativity flow! PM me is you have any questions.

    Possibly...how many to make and what guidelines?

    I love Christmas ornaments, especially handmade ones!

    Most of the ones I've done up to now are crocheted, would that be acceptable?

    sure, crocheted would be fine...I would say that however many you want to make, would be how many you would get back.

    I've only made felt ones, so it depends on the guidelines

    I'm in! I too love handmade ornaments -- well, I should. It was my business for 15 years! All were hand painted and mostly hand cut balsa wood, made right here in the good old USA. But now I am trying some fabric ornaments, and a swap should be fun. Just let me know in case I forget to follow this thread.
