Seattle Secret Sewing Swap

The time has come to sign up for our Annual Secret Sewing Swap!

To sign up and participate in this fabulous swap simply leave your name and email address on the Secret Sewing Swap thread on the MQG site (open to current Seattle Modern Quilt Guild members only, thank you).  Then, you will receive an email invitation from drawnames.com to join the SMQG Secret Sewing Swap.  Follow the instructions in the email to join the group and fill out your wish list no later than September 10.  On September 11th the swap partners will be drawn automatically and your partner information will be emailed to you.

Please fill out your wish list with helpful information such as: favorite colors, hated colors, patterns you love, your favorite fabric designers, favorite book, or any information you feel might help someone create something you will love.  However, don’t be so specific that your partner has no freedom to create. Also, include your social media info (instagram, flicker, blog) to allow for easy partner stalking. 

Your swap item MUST be quilted and in a MODERN style.  The field is open for you to create (mini quilts, zipper pouches, mug rugs, pin cushions, tote, pouches, etc) and it MUST be at the October 14th guild meeting.  If you can not attend the October meeting please make arrangements with another person to get your swap item to the meeting (and pick up your swap item for you).

A few things to consider:
1. This is a secret swap so sneak peeks (or even full views) on social media are fun but don’t tag your partner! Be sure to use the hashtag #seamswap.
2. This is an excellent time to stretch your skills and try something new.
3.  Have fun!
