Swap Info

A new swap for a new year.  Our Swap Coordinator, Amanda, is leading us on a Scrappy Pillow adventure.  If you would like to participate, please remember to bring those scraps.  How many?  A paper bag full.  What size paper bag?  You decide!  Bring a lunch bag, and you might get a sort-of-scrappy pillow.  Bring a large bag, and you will get a super-scrappy pillow.  It's totally up to you.  This swap will be secret (somewhat).  You will *know* you're getting a pillow, but each quiltmaker has full creative license to use your scraps however they want.  Members can read about it more on this forum post.

Stuff To Bring:
If you have any questions, contact me (or any of the other officers. See you Saturday!
