Rather than the holiday ornament swap that we’ve done at our December meeting for the past few years, we’re going back to the highly popular scrap swap – and making it a challenge as well!
(all of the goodies swapped in 2012!)
How it works:
– Everyone who brings a bag of scraps will take a bag of scraps and use it to make a gift for their partner.
– Gifts should be something smallish, like a zippered pouch, simple tote, mug rug, potholder, notebook cover, pincushion, etc.
– Bring the finished items back to the December meeting, along with any leftover scraps.
And the challenge part of it?
– The only fabric you can add to the scraps you receive is SOLIDS, and the finished item must incorporate FLYING GEESE in some way.
If you’d like to participate, please bring a scrap bag containing AT LEAST 2 fqs worth of fabric to the October meeting. Pick your favourite fabrics (including prints), because you’ll be getting it back, all sewn up into something just for you! When you get to the meeting, Amy will give you a very short little questionnaire to fill out and tuck inside your bag. Make sure your name isn’t visible, because this will be a secret swap!
(happy swappers from 2012!)
