I'm very excited about this swap...hope you are too! 

·         Swap Description

o   Directly swapping a set of 4 matching place mats made in either a spring or Easter theme

o   Swap will open January 18 and place mats will be mailed or shipped between March 26 and April 1.

·         Swap Details

o   Each participant will prepare one set of 4 matching place mats in a spring or Easter theme.

o   There is no limit on the number of participants.

o   Sign-up opens on January 18 and will close on February 15. 

o   You must ‘friend’ Regina (basketbear); include your full name, user name, mailing address, phone number, personal email AND choice of theme you wish to receive.  Your name will not be added to the list until this information is received.

o   I will draw names and on February 18 will let you know, by PM, whom you will send to, their address, and the theme you will need to make for them.  Swap partners will be kept a secret to everyone except the hostess and moderator.

o   I will try to keep maker and recipient with matching themes unless otherwise requested.  (For example:  Someone may have a lot of spring fabric but would love to receive Easter place mats.) 

·         Fabric

o   Fabric should be good quality or better.

o   Avoid religious themed fabric.

o   Avoid large weave/homespun, linen, vinyl, flannel and fabrics that do not launder well.

o   Fusible or non fusible light or mid-weight batting should be used.  Products such as Soft & Stable are acceptable.

·         Place Mat Details

o   Each place mat should measure approximately 13" x 18".  Size of place mat may vary slightly with the shape

o   The set consists of 4 matching place mats.

o   If you sign up for 2 sets, please use different fabrics for each set.

o   Make sure that your place mats are finished securely so they will withstand frequent washings.

o   Use the pattern of your choice.  Feel free to post a link on the discussion thread to inspire fellow swappers.

o   You will have 6 weeks to complete the set of 4 matching place mats.

o   Post your progress on the thread every couple of weeks to help keep us all on track.

o   Secure the finished set of 4 matching place mats and recipient’s name and address in a sealed plastic bag before inserting in outside shipping box/envelope. This will insure they will be delivered if damage to the outer packaging occurs while in transit.  Don’t forget to include a short note to introduce yourself!

o   Mail or ship your finished set of 4 matching place mats between March 26 and April 1. (No fooling!  Tee hee!)

o   Immediately, send the tracking number to Regina (basketbear) by PM.

o   If possible, share a picture of the place mats you receive.  We would love to see the finished product of everyone’s creativity and hard work.

 

         Have Fun!!

Regina

Liz,

You are really out to a great start!  I have my design and focus fabric, just need to find 1 or 2 fabrics to coordinate. Anyone else getting an early start?

I have two almost completed but will have them all finished and mailed by the weekend. Isn't that when we mail them? Thanks, Regina, for hosting the swap.
