WHAT/SIZE:Every participant will make and receive a handmade zipper bag. The pattern/style is a “Maker’s choice” and can be anything that displays your creative point of view. For this SWAP it is highly encouraged that you keep your design “scrappy”. I ask that you make something larger than a coin purse.
WHEN:Sign Up’s are happening NOW through September 1st, or earlier.* All packages must be shipped to partners by October 8th, 2023.
WHERE:Everywhere! My SWAP events are open to everyone. Each participant will be paired 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. We offer helpful hints, technique-based tutorials, and because of our community atmosphere, you are able to get help and ask questions along the way.
*Please note space is limited and our SWAPs tend to sell out quickly.
