Details of swap:

Do you love vintage aprons?  Does it make your day to put on a frilly thing to serve cocktails and hors d'ouvres?  Do you like to put on practical smocks for heavy housework?  Does ric-rac rock your socks off?  Do you want something special to wear when you serve Christmas dinner?  Then this swap is for you! 

You will be swapping one vintage-styled apron with a holiday theme.  That's it.  Anything extra will be negotiated between partners.  Aprons can be sewn or purchased and embellished.  Embroidery?  Trim?  Applique?  The sky's the limit!  Let your inner June Cleaver run wild!

This is an international swap, although I'll try to honor requests to swap within your own country.  Hopefully, since aprons are light and can be packed in an envelope, postage won't be too hefty.

To facilitate good communication, please post at least once a week in this thread. 

You will receive feedback noting poor communication if you do not post weekly or if you fail to PM your organizer when you send or receive.

Send any communication to the organizer with the subject Vintage Apron Swap.
