PostSubject: spring / summer swap idea?   Mon Apr 04, 2016 5:38 am

What'cha think?

Players:
1)  Sewn3w
2) Marynel
3) Anita
4) Memaw
5) Redmadder
6) Texasmusicmom
7) Linda2B
8) Hummerlou
9) TxMaryQuilts

Perhaps TxMary or Gimpy can put a link here the member likes and dislikes post.

(Y'all might want to go edit your preferences if things have changed for you. I mean if you have been bitten recently by a mad rabbit, bunnies might not be high on your like list anymore!  lol!  )

Always refer to the last line of this post.  Always Cheesy

Mug Rug Swap:
1) Sign up deadline is Friday, April 15.  I will PM your swap recipient after the 15th.  Remember the person you mail your swap to may not be the person sending their swap to you.
2) Please PM me your screen name, name, address.  I will only share  with the maker of your swap goodie.  
3) Please make a set of mug rugs.  (2 or more is a set).
4) I measured my largest mug.  It will take a 4” rug.  So let’s make the size requirement a minimum of 4”.  
5) There is a post with peoples likes and dislikes, please take time to check out your partner’s preferences.  Coffee, Tea, Cocoa, Birds, Kitties, Cooking?   Well you get the idea.  
6) Mailing deadline is Friday June 17th.  
7) If “life happens” and you are unable to complete your swap or will be late please contact me.  Either I will find a swap angel to step in or contact the recipient that their package will be late.

• All are welcomed and encouraged to participate no matter the skill level.  
• I do not have a direct line to the Quilt Police.  No one will be knocking at your door if your rug is lopsided, not 4”, a couple stitches show.  
• Some people enjoy adding a little extra goody in the package.  This is a nice touch.  It is not necessary.  So if you receive a little extra, just remember to be gracious and thank your partner.  
• The biggest most important rule of the swap is below.

PUT ON YOUR THINKING CAPS AND HAVE FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Sorry, I have no theme I have no deadline, I only have a wish to do a swap.

Anyone want to throw out ideas ? Theme, one mug rug, a set of 2? Date, anything else?

Me too.

Ok Sewn start with a list of people who want to play along (You just keep editing the post to add more names.)
Then make some simple rules, how many rugs? 1 or 2?
Theme or anything goes?
Then set a date that the rugs need to be in the mail by. We know Jill needs until the end of July.
    But that is 4 months. A bit long for a small swap. Usually for a small swap, 2 months max. I am
    sure Jill will understand and we will do something else later that she can participate in.
Set a cut off date for signing up. Say the 15th of April. You have a lot signed up already so should be
    good by then.
Then draw names and P.M. everyone their swap partner.

If you edit and place all this info in your first post, it will be easy for everyone to find the info. Your swap, you get to make the rules. Do your best to make it easy for everyone to participate but accept the fact that it won't work out for everyone. It never does and that does not make you mean, it makes you in charge. coolsmiley  Have fun with your first swap!

Oh, and if you ask Helen nicely, she will put your swap on the banner to let everyone know. winking

Okay Friends I have set up some rules/guidelines. As I am new to this, I may need to add or change as we go along. Please bear with me.
There are a lot of mug rug ideas and free patterns on line, I hope everyone has lots of fun.

Please go to the first post as I will be updating it with names and rules. coolsmiley

I certainly understand the early cutoff date, and that is fine. I'll try to catch the next one. I firmly believe I'll find a few things to fill the time....

Jill, if you can't  find  anything to fill your time check with your friends here. I'm sure we can fix that. Maybe you can find a street corner  to stand on with Memaw. lmao

NO! I take that back, you and memaw  are going to be too  close  together  soon, no telling what you 2 will  cook up to  do! Shocked
