I think the whole "push the boundaries" thing might intimidate some people. I mean, I'm intimidated just thinking about it.

I'd have to agree.  I am a mixed media kinda girl but a newbee in embroidery so it should be in my wheelhouse but...(bites lower lip nervously) with those great examples there may be REALLY high expectations all the way around.  Undecided

I love the idea of a mixed media theme! The idea is broad enough that it can be interpreted in so many ways. I can only imagine what the the gallery would look like :-)

I could go with mixed media. I got a bunch of mixed media embroidery supplies last craft fair, so I might be doing that whatever theme we go with Cheesy But my favorite is still the mix and match! Wink

Seems like a lot of people are interested in a mixed media style hoop.. I think that would be awesome. Do you think that beginners would also be interested in trying out something like that? I just don't want to limit the swap by making the theme sound too tough... hmmm...

Also Timing wise - I was thinking sign ups for this could happen January 26 - Feb 9 send outs on March 5?

I don't think mixed media should be too intimidating for a beginner - even adding something like beads would qualify and that's not too hard to do.

Your timing suggestion would work great for me.
