Thanks, Karen

Sure I would love to make some ornaments. But it will depend on the guide lines. I love to do embroidery and little fabric ornaments.
So if that can be done count me in.

ssnare 08-25-2010 06:32 PM

I would be interested. I need to know the guidelines first.

cindy in texas 08-25-2010 06:52 PM

please include me in the ornament swap

ragamuffin corner 08-25-2010 07:10 PM

I noticed that you mentioned you painted ornaments. I have just begun quilting but I really am a painter. Of course just what I need another project with quilting but I am hooked on fabrics now. I was wondering if you know of any painting sites that also do swaps.This message board is the best I have ever seen. Wish I could find a painting board also.Thank You
Fran

What kind of swap would a painter do?

QweenBee 08-25-2010 08:21 PM

I'd bee willing to participate!
:thumbup:

lynnie 08-25-2010 08:24 PM

lynnie 08-25-2010 08:27 PM

i would prefer a direct mailingmailing to you then getting back is doble postage, therefore i would suggest a directmailing
thanks

quilt-n-frenz 08-25-2010 08:27 PM

I would like to try this swap as well please(Vickie)a.k.a-quilt-n-frenz
Blessings to you all my quilting friends.

Hello Everbody!

It looks like this is a VERY popular idea. Somebody said that if there were enough people we should be able to decorate a whole tree - it certainly looks like that could happen!
I've joined in with Secret Pal swaps but wold like to know how many of you are willing to swap Internationally in this swap? I'm in Scotland and would like to swap.
Bye Bye for now Quilty Friends!
Sue xx(rummage)

moonwolf23 08-25-2010 09:19 PM

I might be interested as well.

You could do ornaments,anything that you would paint on.I paint on alot of wood, old shoes, old double runner ice skates(which of course living in Florida) most people do not know what a double runner ice skate is. I have my daughter from NH hit the Goodwill stores and ship to me but shipping has become so expensive once I have finished the skates I won't be doing anymore. I fill the ice skates with xmas decorations and add a little lamp inside.I have thousands invested in paints of all kind and books and now you should see the material and quilting books. I will never live long enough to finish everything. LOL

ragamuffin corner 08-26-2010 02:56 AM

Oh my goodness, I would love to send something to Scotland. But it would have to be a painted object at this point.No one would want to see my attempt at a quilting project. I am just learning.I just love this board. Everyone is so helpful.By the responses it would be more than one tree! Can't wait to hear.

ragamuffin corner 08-26-2010 02:58 AM

Sue, how would I get involved in the Secret Swaps? That sounds like fun also.

I would love to join the holiday ornament swap. Count me in.

Thanks

ladydi64 08-26-2010 04:48 AM

My siste, who also shares my craft room, makes ornaments from blown out eggs. Would this be considered.

beckyw 08-26-2010 04:53 AM

I would like to swap a ornament.

jayelee 08-26-2010 05:17 AM

I am willing to swap internationally and I also like the directmailing idea like the doll quilts

ragamuffin corner 08-26-2010 05:30 AM

Oh my gosh! she must have a huge amount of patience!

rummage 08-26-2010 05:37 AM

:D Hi Fran,
For Secret Swaps, go to 'Home' then onto 'Member Swaps and Round Robins', at the moment about half way down you will find the September swap on the go, sign ups close on the 5th of the month usually. It is run by Emily, (quiltingbee12). All the rules/guidlines are there too. They are great fun, it's always exciting to get a package in the post. If you do join, Good Luck and see you there!

:?: Please tell me about the direct mailing idea with the doll quilts, don't know about this swap :!:

dream56 08-26-2010 05:40 AM

I too would be interested

ragamuffin corner 08-26-2010 05:52 AM

OK, I am never going to get my housework done before going to work tonight.This board is addictive. Afraid I am going to miss something. Yikes!

jayelee 08-26-2010 06:08 AM

direct mailing is where you send your doll quilt to the person you swap with Then the person in charge doesnt have to worry about mailing everything out and doesnt have to worry about whether everyone sends her the right postage to return to them

JacquelineVH 08-26-2010 06:53 AM

I prefer direct mailing

dotcomdtcm 08-26-2010 07:40 AM

Direct mailing would be hard for ornament swapping. I envision making 10? ornaments & receiving others in exchange. I could mail to 10 quilters but it would be a pain in the neck. Direct mail works when you have only 1 partner.

Covered in Threads 08-26-2010 07:56 AM

I love this idea, be it nationally or internationally - I'm game. Making 10 or 12 to exchange with others would be wonderful, like baked cookie exchanges we do in our local study group. It's the organizing part that has me questioning it.
Direct mailing makes sense in a financially pratical way and taking all the names then dividing them up into clusters would keep the volume to a minimum - as to how many you would have to produce and mail out.
So who it the initiator of this wonderful project? And when will there be details/guildelines posted for it?
Guess I'm a bit excited and anxious to see this happen.

rummage 08-26-2010 08:24 AM

:shock:
Hi, I'm wondering how it is all going to come together too.

There seems to be a lot of us wanting to do this swap, it is going to require some serious organizing.
The postage is going to be a bit of a headache I think - figuring out how much will be required to cover it etc. Last time I did something like this you could FQ's instead of cash or just straight forward $$. If the organizer is sending out bundles of 10 plus ornaments then I think $$ will be required for the p&p. I can get hold of American an Australian $$.

I guess the initiator would be me with a little push from Jacquiline :)....we are working out all of the details now since there seems to be enough interest and will post as soon as they are finalized. :thumbup:
