Table Runner SWAP 2019

What can I say, I am beyond impressed with all the mini quilt photos being shared from the last SWAP and feel like it’s time to keep the creativity flowing. That means, it’s time to kick off the Table Runner SWAP.

Table runners come in all different shapes and sizes are perfect for using up our scraps. They are easy to make and a great project for testing out a new block design. I consider them a go to quick-hitter sewing project that can be made in an afternoon.

Table Runner SWAP Details:

WHAT/SIZE: Every participant will make and receive a handmade table runner. The pattern/style is makers 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”.  The finished table runner should be around 36″ long by 12″ wide. Feel free to chat with your partner for special requests.

WHEN: Sign Up’s are happening NOW through May 12th, 2019 or earlier.* All packages must be shipped to partners by June 21st, 2019.

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.

Price: $5 per SWAP  – I am often asked about the fee and want to clarify right up front. Running a SWAP of this size and caliber requires a tremendous amount of effort behind the screen. There are many hours spent organizing, emailing, and following up with participants. Not to mention being a SWAP Angel when a partner falls out at the last minute.

*Please note space is limited and the event is likely to sell out. Be sure to join the fun while you can.

Scrappy Girls Club Group: As many of you know community is very important to me. So, I formed a private Facebook community to chat directly with you and offer a safe space for everyone to get together.  Inside the group you can share projects you are working on or have finished, meet and get to know the members from around the world, share inspiration, and participate in additional group activities. Everything is in one spot- simple and easy to use on your computer or smart phone.

Here is how the SWAP will work:

The Table Runner SWAP is open for sign ups until May 12th, 2019*.  After joining, you will receive a quick questionnaire to help me pair you with the perfect sewing buddy.  Then I’ll be digging in with my team and getting to work partnering you with the perfect sewing buddy. All participants will receive an email with your partner information by May 22nd, 2019.

Need Inspiration? Never fear, I have a great round up of free mini quilt patterns here or try a new block from the Blocks2 Quilt series.

If you have never joined a SWAP before I have a great article on SWAP Etiquette and how they work. In the meantime, remember my Scrappy Girls Club Community  is always open. Feel free to stop by anytime to chat with other members and share how you are using your scraps! You can share any time during the day, we are always open.

Please remember that SWAP’s like this are all about having fun. No one is putting your work under a microscope. Instead, I just ask that you take pride in your work by trimming off any loose threads and think about how the person receiving this special package will feel when opening. Consider including a small treat, sewing notion or mini bundle of scrap fabrics. I am sure it would be much appreciated by your partner!

Why should you be part of “the table runners swap” ?

Who doesn’t love a handmade gift?! By joining the Table Runners SWAP, you will not only be exchanging a handmade table runner but you will be partnered with a sewing buddy that shares your passion, understands your need for fabric and totally cringes when someone grabs the fabric scissors. Basically, someone who “get’s it”!

This is a swap that fits your schedule, has members who are passionate about sewing and gets you excited about to start your next great project.

You are encourage to keep in touch with your new sewing buddy after our mini’s have been exchanged and are welcome to join our private facebook group. Inside the group, you can upload pictures, ask questions and meet other members.
