WHAT/SIZE: Every participant will put together and receive a 1-gallon size bag filled with assorted scraps. The colors and prints included in the bag are “Maker’s choice” and can be anything that you think your partner would enjoy and use. Scraps should be cotton quilting quality, no smaller than 2" x 4" and no larger than a fat quarter. Be sure to stuff the bag full and closed before shipping.
WHEN: Sign Up’s are happening NOW through January 15th, 2022, or earlier.* All packages must be shipped to partners by February 25th, 2022.
WHERE: Everywhere! My SWAP events are open to everyone. Our goal is to pair participants with a partner in their general area to keep shipping costs low.
WHO: All fabric scrap lovers and stitchers are welcome! Please remember when joining any swap, your partner may have a different skill level and color assortment than you do.
Price: $5 per SWAP. This question comes up often and I want to clarify this right upfront. Running a SWAP of this size and caliber requires a tremendous amount of effort behind the screen. Events like this require many hours of organizing, emailing, and following up with participants. Not to mention being a SWAP Angel when a partner falls out at the last minute. This is the reason for the small fee.
