    September 2018 Mug Rug Swap (Flying High)

    September 2018 Mug Rug Swap —

    Welcome to the September Mug Rug Swap! This month’s theme is: Flying High

    Think of things that fly high in the sky (Birds, Plane, Hot Air Balloon etc.) We all love to look up at the sky every now and again so what do you see flying high in the sky, use your creativity and bring it to a Mug Rug, think about what may be up in the sky flying who knows someone even may see a UFO or a Rocket. Get those creative minds to think and make a beautiful Mug Rug for your Partner.


    Signup begins; 20 August 2018
    Signup closes: 31 August 2018 at midnight
    Partners assigned: 1 September 2018
    Mail by dates: International 10 August 2018/ all others 20 August 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. Will you make something abstract, realistic or whimsical? Will you appliqué or paper-piece or just go with regular piecing?

    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 August 31st. Deadline to send out swaps is September 20th & International is 10 September 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 September 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.

    LIz92B I'm sorry if I confused you. If someone is mailing to England, Australia etc. I like for them to mail by the 10th of the month so that the person isn't waiting until the next month to receive their Mug Rug since the mail takes longer to get to them. Everyone else needs to mail by the 20th of the month since the mail her in the states is a lot faster. I hope this makes more sense.

    I believe that your mail dates should be September, not August, hard to mail before partners are assigned.

    Lum thank you for pointing that out that is my mistake. The mail by dates should read International 10 September 2018 and all others will need to be mailed by the 20th of September 2018.

    Seems as though life is filled everyday with recovery, life saving, happy and sad moments. When one ends another begins...guess that's what life is all about. Been thinking a lot about that lately...
    For me I want to thank you all for your prayers and positive thoughts. They seem to be working. After the exam no tumor is present! Check up in 2 weeks and if it is still gone then a scope or scan a month later. If that goes well, Florida here I come!!! Now just to heal again from radiation burns, ugh! All in all, good news for me after 5 long months. Need to work on getting some strength back.
    Armylady, sign me up! Started working on the mug rug today. Will send you a PM
