The time has come to sign up for our Annual Secret Sewing Swap!
To sign up and participate in this exciting swap simply leave your name and email address on the Secret Sewing Swap thread on the MQG community 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 Tuesday, September 6th. On September 7th 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 12th 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!
I can’t find the Secret Sewing Swap thread on the MQG site. Where specifically should I look?
Sorry to be obtuse. Ginger.

Thank you! Had to join the group, then got access!
I need more information about how to register. I go to the MQG website? And where is the category “swaps”? I looked everywhere that seemed reasonable.
You need to go the community portion of the MQG site and log-in. It is the top thread on the Seattle group. This link will take you directly to it (you will have to log-in before you can read it): https://community.themodernquiltguild.com/groups/seattle-mqg/annual-secret-sewing-swap
hi there ..still having trouble…i am signed in but it says access denied when i go to this link??
Maybe you need to refresh the page after you sign in? If you are having trouble with your membership log-in on the MQG community site you will need to contact our VP of Membership, Ellen. She handles access to the MQG community site.
