I can be happy with anything! And, it's probably better to have only 1 partner (now that I think about it Wink ) because school will still be in session, and I'll be dealing with mid-term grades right about then. I will just have to covet all of the awesome fabrics that will surely be produced Grin

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

1 or 2 partners is cool!

I have a question unrelated to partnering, though: Embossed velvet is okay for this swap, right? Or no? If it is, would one send a standard fat-quarter size, like from a 45" piece of fabric, or a bigger one because velvet is often sold in widths larger than 45"? Just curious...

I would, of course, would be more than happy to try other methods on other fabrics but I actually have some experience embossing velvet.  Smiley

Personally I think embossed velvet is ok (and sounds really cool!). I think that should be discussed among partners - you can certainly include it in your questionnaire. As far as fat quarter size, I think the standard is something like 18 inches by 22 inches or around that number. If you sent more that would be cool as long as you understand you might not get as much fabric sent back to you in return. Or if you and your partner(s) agree to sending more than the minimum amount.

Hey! I just posted a tutorial for this month's craftster challenge and guess what it is.........yup! A how to on screen printing at home, focusing on the drawing fluid/screen filler method. I just spent the last hour drooling at hand printed fabrics on etsy. I can't wait to start printing!
