    Quilting in the New Year - January 2012

    Do you like receiving a mystery project in the mail - then it's time to sign up for the next month of Quilting in the New Year Swap - This is a swap especially designed to swap a variety of completed projects. These projects can be anything from a totebag, table topper, wall hanging, sweatshirt, sewingcase, set of blocks or pin cushion to whatever you choose to make. It's a swap designed to get to know your partner, share ideas - then make her something she might like.

    Description: Quilting in the New Year Swap – January 2012

    Sign up deadline: December 30, 2011

    This is a swap that would enable you to be paired up with another ‘Quilting Pal’ and swap a quilted item that each has made. It can be either machine or hand quilted. The Quilting Pals would know who each other is and can chat about their projects throughout the whole month. Projects swapped do not need to be the same item - so you can make whatever you make best. This would just be for January 2012. You would be signing up for one month at a time.

    Beginner quilters as well as experienced quilters are invited to join. Every attempt will be made to match you up with a quilter who is at the same level of experience. (If an experienced quilter would like to be matched with a beginner and to be a mentor, please let me know.)

    If you are international, feel free to join!

    If you are interested in joining, please send me a Private message with the following information.

    Screen Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Level of Quilting Experience:
    Can you mail international?
    Type of Project you'd like to make:
    Do you smoke or have in house Pets:
    Allergies:

    This form will be given to your swap partners. Partners may choose to exchange additional information about such things as color preferences, specific type of project, etc. Partners are reminded that this is a swap. Please avoid issuing too many specifications as though you were placing an order with a commercial business. The elements of mystery and surprise are at least half the fun.


    The cost limit on this is to be $15 (USA) excluding postage.

    Sign up will close December 30, 2011. The names will be paired up by January 1, 2012. Partners are responsible for keeping in touch during the month to keep each other updated on the progress of the project. Anyone not completing and sending projects - will be given a poor swap rating and not be able to participate in this swap in the future,

    All of the standard rules that apply to swaps apply. The rules were updated on 8 Dec 2010, so please make sure to check them before signing up.
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    In addition:
    Neither project will be sent out/exchanged until both are done. Partners will agree on a specific date on which each will put their package into the mail. Unless otherwise agreed by both partners, the projects should all be done and in the mail by January 31, 2012. You must notify coordinator when all items have been shipped and received so records can be updated.

    This project has been approved by PatriceJ.

    Coordinated by: immemother
    (If you want to be added to this group activity, then please send a private message to the coordinator.)

    Thanks for taking it over. I can't join in for January but hope that personal life straightens out enough to let me join in other months in 2012.
    Happy Quilting!

    I would also like to join in Feb. The first week of Jan is a write off for me, so I wouldn't be able to get anything ready until Feb if that is ok.

    Looks like January is going to be a small cozy group, but February is going to be a Party! Can't wait.

    Happy New Year (well it is down here anyway),

    For those swapping in January you should have all received a PM by now, please let me know if you havent.

    And for those just window shopping this month, be sure to sign up for February around the 15th of Jan.

    Got my wall hanging in the mail from Christina in Tennessee today. Hers has been mailed as well. She is going to post pictures of both when hers arrives. I am going to wait for her to help keep the surprise good till she does get it. I have hung mine on the main wall at the office for everyone to enjoy for a week or two before I take it home to hang in my sewing room. This is a fun swap and I am signed up for February. It is fun getting a surprise in the mail, isn't it? !!!! Best wishes to all involved. Oh, I almost forgot to mention that when my package arrive it had some "extras" in there. Some patterns and a bucket of candy!!!! Life don't get any better!!

    I recieved a stunning tote from Tina "luvmyash" (swap partner Jan. 2012). She was so much fun to swap with and the tote she made is gorgeous. Thank you Tina!
