VMQG – LMQG Swap!

Who is up for swapping with the lovely members of the London Modern Quilt Guild? While I was in London in July, I met some super fun gals who were “dead keen” to swap with us! We decided that small and light would be the order of the day since swap items would have to ship across the Atlantic, so we’re going for needlebooks.

The swap will be blind, meaning we’re not making for a specific person. This leaves you to create something you’ll enjoy making in any colours or design of your choosing. Please consider we’re swapping with a modern guild and let that guide your fabric/design choices. Amy has created a Pinboard with a gazillion ideas here: http://pinterest.com/amydame/needlebooks-and-sewing-kits/ For the purposes of this swap, we are sticking to simple needlebooks only, not full-blown sewing kits. This way shipping costs will be kept to a minimum and everyone will receive a comparable swap gift. Please do NOT put any needles in your book!

The swap is limited to approximately 20 and so far we’ve got 18 signed up so if you want in, be sure to put your name on the list at the September meeting.

Completed needlebooks (wrapped in brown paper) are due at our November meeting). If you sign up, please don’t disappoint someone in London by flaking out – bring a needlebook to the November meeting or arrange for a friend to bring it for you if you can’t make it.

  1. How do we sign up? I’ve told Krista I’m in, is that good enough? Really looking forward to this challenge!
