This swap is super fun and a great way to get to know people and improve your skills. Beginners and experienced embroiderers have all enjoyed this swap. The swap consists of an embroidery tour. You can send a cloth napkin, an apron, or a tea towel, whatever you choose your item should be a light weight, light colored (preferably white) fabric, suitable for embroidery, and inexpensive to mail. If you have time before the send date you can embroider a little something on your item but it is more important the item go out on time.
Before you send attach with a safety pin or baste a tag to your item with your name and address and put your item into a Ziploc bag. Send your item to your designated receiver, post that you have sent it, they embroider it and post their design, and post when they've sent it on. You wait impatiently for an item to arrive from your designated shipper, post when it arrives and post when you finish your design and include a picture if you can and post when it has been sent on. Communication you see is the key. REMEMBER YOU HAVE ONE WEEK FROM WHEN IT ARRIVES TO GET IT BACK IN THE MAIL.
Although this idea originally started with Sublime Stitching you can use any embroidery pattern you like. Please remember that several people need to embroider it in a short amount of time so pick something that fits with your skill level and allotted time frame. You MUST PM with a DC when you send.
You should PM the organizer and your partners if you think you will be running late or out of contact for more than a week. Anyone who is not in contact on a weekly basis via posts or PMs without prior notification will be considered flaking. FLAKERS SLOW DOWN THEIR WHOLE GROUP, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR SCHEDULE CAN ACCOMODATE THE TIME COMMITMENT. The estimated time for completion of this swap is early to mid November.
