This swap is super fun and a great way to get to know people and improve your skills. Beginners and experienced hand 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 hand 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 (from here on out referred to as towel) go out on time.
Before you send attach with a safety pin or baste a tag to your towel with your name and address and put your towel into a Ziploc bag. You may want to include a card to your fellow stitchers letting them know a little about you or your kitchen. When you receive a towel
YOU HAVE ONE WEEK from its arrival date until it needs to shipped out again. If you have time take a photo and post your design but do not let this interfere with getting it shipped in the one week time frame. When a towel arrives
you need to let your group organizer and the sender know. When you ship a towel
you must PM the receiver and your group organizer and let them know (include the DC #). If you are running late let your group organizer know. Communication is key failure to communicate could result in you being skipped.
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 (one 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 April.
