    Needlecase Exchange 4

    Hi Everyone,

    It's time to sign up for the next Needlecase Exchange.

    There is no theme to this exchange, but on this occasion I will be assigning partners.... so you will send to your partner and they will send to you.... this will allow you to contact each other and create your own theme should you wish to do so.

    CONSTRUCTION:-

    1. The case does not have to be quilted, although it surely can be, but it must be handmade - not shop bought.

    2. It must be made of 100% cotton fabric or wool felt. Embellishments and pretty’s are very welcome as is applique.

    3. The size and shape of the case is up to the individual creating it, but should not be smaller than 4” x 3”.

    MANNERS:
    Please remember to thank your partner. Just a simple post is great. Please also let me know when you send and receive so that I can mark my records and make sure everyone receives a needle case. It would be great if you could post a picture, but if you are unable to post a picture, please ask your partner to do so. Much of the fun is seeing everyone's creations. Also, please understand that this board has members with differing skill levels and you will not necessarily be sent to by somebody at the same level as yourself...... so, love the creation you are sent, whatever the standard of sewing, piecing, quilting. We all started somewhere and the most important ingredient in our creations is love!

    PLEASE PLEASE REMEMBER TO LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU MAIL AND RECIEVE!!!!!!


    PARTNERS:
    There is no theme to this exchange, but on this occasion I will be assigning partners.... so you will send to your partner and they will send to you.... this will allow you to contact each other and create your own theme should you wish to do so.

    EXTRAS:
    This is a secret exchange so please please ensure that you put a card in with your exchange so the recipient knows who has made it. If you can, give a few details about yourself.... it is lovely if we can get to know each other a little better. This exchange is for a needle case only. It is not necessary to put other items in with your exchange but you can if you feel you would like to.

    SIGN UP:

    Sign up begins today and ends Sunday 28th October 2012. I’ll will assign partners as early after the cut off date as I can and I will let all participants know who their partners are as soon as possible.

    DUE DATE:
    The deadline for all needle cases to be mailed is
    30th November 2012 so there will be plenty of time to manufacture your creation. This is a carved in stone deadline. Please get proof of posting so that we can trace lost packages.


    Now for the fun...... to sign up please fill in these details and PM me

    1. Name

    2. Address

    3. Email address

    4. Favourite Colours

    5. Can you post internationally?

    6. Do you have allergies?

    7. Do you have pets?

    Hugs and looking forward to another fun exchange!

    Caroline

    Guess I'll sit it out, this time. I'm more of a "mystery partner exchange" fan. Am looking forward to seeing pictures, though!

    Hi Lynnie! I'm good. Been busy as always! lol............what am I gonna do? Not sure yet...depends on my time...I'll probably make something that I can just whip out.....for insurance purposes and I'd really like to do something a little fancier if I get the time.
    How about you? The next 2 weeks are very full for me...but will keep checking in.

    BTW should I be looking for a PM to confirm that hostess got my message? Will there be a post with list of swappers?
    Have a good day!

    I think I might sign up for this. I have to finish my holiday swap blocks first. I have never done a needle case swap and, to be frank, I usually just throw my bitty notions in a ziploc baggie so this would be great for me. A needle case is a much better idea! Gonna work on those blocks tonight and try to get them done!

    my kitty is two, and as precious as ever. She eats off a silver plate platter. Cant afford solid silver.
    Monday, i go in for surgery#25 my left knee replacement. Then after either my rt eye or the hernia. Been busy. Have all my swap stuff done ahead of time, and thats about it. I dont think we get a confirm. Shell prob. Just put a list up soon.
    i still need to make a few goodies for my partner, after all, it is the holidays.

    I think I also will have to sit out on this one, because I have so many things to work on for the holidays, and several December birthdays too.

    This is my first needle case swap, I'm really excited, also excited to get to know you all. I made my first one last month for a test run and it was fun.

    I'm in too for my first needlecase swap. Don't worry, I've made cases before. I think my sister, sucia, signed up too for her second time around.

    lynnie,

    you are irrepressible! i'd like to swap fancy pins with you sometime, but i'm fairly certain that my pins couldn't match your masterpieces.
