Looking Ahead to 2011 - Part 4

How many things that you make do you actually keep?  We all love making things as gifts, but isn't nice to RECEIVE a handmade gift?  Since that rarely happens with us crafters and sewists, we've decided to do something about that.  We will be holding several SWAPS in the coming year. 

Our first swap will be Pincushions!

Here's how it will work:
  • You agree to make a pincushion to be swapped with someone else at The Quilt Asylum.
  • The deadline to sign up is 7pm, Monday, January 24.
  • Pincushions will be exchanged at our Swap Party at 6pm on Monday, February 7.
  • If you cannot attend the Swap Party, you agree to turn in your pincushion no later than 5pm, February 7.  TQA will swap on your behalf.
  • You can make any size, style, or type of pincushion, but you agree to do your best work and create something that you would be proud to own.
  • You will need to turn in an info card with each pincushion (you will receive a blank info card when you sign up).
  • You can make and swap more than one pincushion, but you will need to attach an info card to each one.
  • If you default on your commitment to participate, you will not be allowed to participate in the next swap.
We encourage you to have fun with this swap!  It's a great opportunity to try something new, make new friends, and receive something handmade all in the same process!  If you have any questions, or wish to sign up to play with us, give us a call at (972) 562-2686.
