    ATTENTION Embroidery machine owners

    Just an FYI if you have an embroidery machine
    JULIA'S NEEDLE DESIGNS is having a GREAT sale
    on all (and I mean ALL) their design SETS for $1
    per set.

    Wish I had some extra money, but I DID have 1 dollar
    to get a cute set.

    Sale ends MAY 27th!
    Louise - Ya-ya to Zachary April 13 2015. I collect mugs from the U.S. and around the world. Also collect handmade pincushions, sewing/quilting themed fabrics, and fabric in general.

    I would like this to be a surprise to her if you'd like to 'hear' or brainstorm with me....with my brain, at times it's more like a dust storm than a ' real' brain storm :0) Please send me a PM and I will share my light bulb moment/idea.

    i will catch up with everyone at a later swap but i will be sure to peek in and check on you all. have fun!
    My thoughts are with you and your SIL. Please keep us posted on her progress and tell her to BE POSITIVE. I know what I am talking about...I am a survivor of 23 years!!!!

    Oh how I missed this swap .... I haven't participated in the last couple of months and was having severe withdrawals!!!

    I went back to my hometown for vacation to see my first ever grandchild ... it is a girl!!! I cuddled her and spoilt her rotten till it was time for me to come back home and then I had eye surgery done a week ago which was a great success!

    Now I am excited to join the swaps again!!! I have signed up and sent my info to Lori!!!

    I am planning on getting into my sewing room this weekend and start sewing since I haven't been in there forever!!!

    Cheers!!!
    Stacey

    cas take a look at last month's link and you can see what kinds of items are included in a swap package. there is a variety of items to include, sewing things such as hand or sewing needles, pincushions, fat quarters, thread, quilt patterns, notepads, notecards, scissors, handmade items. oh my there are so many things one can send. browse through the link below and see if that helps you. or you can super browse and go back and look through other months also. welcome aboard if you decide to join us. this is a fun bunch of guys and gals.

    Thanks for the link. I think I went to page 112 to see "what". lol

    I'm guessing it's like a "care package"? Whatever you'd like to send? So I don't have to sew something, that's good, I haven't been doing well in that dept. lately.

    copy the template on page 1 over to a word processing program, complete your info and save it. send lori a private message (a pm. just click on her name on pg 1 and the pm link will pop up), copy your template into the pm and send it to lori. that will sign you up. then you just work on getting your secret pal's package together to mail (by deadline date) and someone will be doing the same for you.

    once the signup closes, lori, the hostess, will send out your swap pal's info to you. you prepare your package taking into account what your pal has included on his/her list.

    its as simple and easy as that. you don't have to include handmade things though most of us luv them. there are many ways to maximize your $10.00 spending limit. such as shopping dollar stores, tuesday mornings, sale days at joann's (with coupons), sale aisles at many stores, yard sales, estate sales, garage sales.

    if you have questions along the way, feel free to ask them. there are plenty of players here that can help you along. welcome aboard.
