    January 2019 to March 2019 Table Runner Swap

    Hi Guys,

    Welcome to our ongoing Table Runner Swap! This swap will run from 1st January 2019 to the 31st March 2019.

    You have until the 31stMarch 2019 to make a table runner - the theme this time is... Stars or Stripes!!!!!!. This would mean that you can use either stars OR stripes and all variations on these in your runners.

    Size of Table Runner

    The table runner should be a minimum of 12” x 30”.
    You can use any technique/ any style.
    All fabrics used should be 100% cotton.
    The runner must have wadding and be quilted.

    Sign Up list

    There is no deadline so you can sign up at any time during the 3 months as this will be just an intention to participate. When you have made and are ready to mail your runner you can then sign up to the “ready to mail” list which is binding commitment.

    But please remember that the only list that counts is the Ready to Mail list posted at the end of March 2019.

    Ready to Mail list

    An initial Ready to Mail list will be posted around the 24th March 2019.If you are not on this list you will not get an address to send to unless you contact me and get on the final listing.

    Midnight on the 31st March 2019 – is the deadline to get on the “Ready to Mail” list. If you want to take part, I will need the following:-

    Real name
    Your address
    Whether you are willing to send international or not (Please consider this as it enables everybody to take part)
    Allergy info
    Pet and smoking information
    Email address

    As long as you have a table runner ready to mail you can join us by letting me know any time before the deadline.

    Addresses Sent Out:

    I will send out the name and address of the person you should send to on the 2nd or 3rd April 2019. You will have 7 days to get your table runner in the mail - No Longer. If you are unable to keep this commitment - please do not sign up.

    You will send your table runner to the quilter who's address you get. You will receive from a different quilter than the one you send to.

    This is not a partner swap.

    Please remember that there are quilters of all abilities on this board and you should appreciate the table runner you receive as your sender will have worked hard to make it for you.

    You are welcome to send some goodies in your package if you would care to, but please don't expect anything other than the table runner.

    Please Note.... You must let me know when you mail and when you receive. Also, please PM the person that sends to you when you receive to say thank you and to let them know that the table runner that they have sent you has arrived - it is only polite to do so!

    So come and join our fun.

    Hugs

    Caroline

    I'm definitely joining in this time! I know that I will have plenty of time to make one.
    Caroline, do you need my info again or can you use what I sent you last time?

    Have no fear, jump in and swim! there is no judging here, like what Mary says. Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the doing.

    Teen, I know how difficult moving can be. Hope you can join us BUT, no pressure!

    This is a fun swap! No quilt police! I haven’t decided what I’m making yet, so I better get looking! Have you checked out Caroline’s first page with size minimum etc? Our theme this time is “stars or stripes”. Hmmm my biggest dilemma is looking at ideas & choosing just one!

    Boop56 of course you can join us. Anyone can. The more the merrier. You don't have to sign up for anything until your runner is ready to mail. Then pm caroline that your ready to mail. In between just stop by here and visit with all of us.

    You can do it. It's just for fun and learning . We all started somewhere. It's amazing all the different runners made every swap. You can show a little sneak peek if you want. Most try not to show the whole runner,so it is a surprise for your partner. Sometimes i have forgotten and showed more than I should have. lol. Wow that almost sounds naughty. lol.
