    July 2018 Mug Rug Swap

    July 2018 Mug Rug Swap — You can choose from any of these national days that are happening in July. I just want us to have some fun this month instead of doing the normal holidays of July.

    World UFO day (2 July)
    National Bikini day (5 July)
    National Kitten day (10th)
    National lollipop day(20th)
    National lipstick day (29th)

    Welcome to the July 2018 Mug Rug Swap! This month’s theme is: Choose from one of the holidays in the list above.

    Signup begins; 23 June 2018
    Signup closes: 30 June 2018 at midnight
    Mail by dates: International 10 July 2018/ all others 20 July 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. Choose a holiday and make a beautiful Mug rug for your partner, lets make it a surprise this month, I can’t wait to see how you all turn that theme into a special mug rug? This is where you get to be creative. Raid your stash (or go shopping!) & get really creative! Will you make something abstract, realistic or whimsical? Will you appliqué or paper-piece or just go with regular piecing? This months creation is totally up to you!
    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 June 30th. Deadline to send out swaps is July 20th & International is 10 July 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 July 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.

    While I had planned to join in July, I will be working at the County Fair all next week. I will look forward to joining the fun in August as well!

    Armylady2012, it's not that I don't want to, trust me, but I think I better wait another month and see how this chemo and radiation goes. I know that I am extremely tired and it will only get worse before it gets better but if the outcome is I'm cancer free in 6 to 8 weeks it's going to be worth it. I think I had better bide my time for now but I will be back and participating again. You are doing a great job!!

    Jaba we all miss you but I am sure everyone will agree that your health and you taking care of yourself right now is more important, I will be praying that the cancer will be gone in 6 to 8 weeks and that you will be feeling better and that you can come and play with us again, Please, Please take care of yourself.

    Thank you... I just made a sample one for myself and had so much fun doing it. It was not perfect but it turned out socute. Now I am ready for the real one. I'm a lot more confident with it too! I am going with National Kitten Day...This should be interesting...
