February is in full swing and today is the last call for sign ups in our Tea Towel SWAP. We are ready to start matching partners for our Tea Towel SWAP. but you have to be in it to win it so to speak.
I don’t know about you, but I’m always thinking that I’ll replace my kitchen dish towel and then never do. So this swap is the perfect way to make it happen. Plus, you can make a new sewing buddy. Tea Towels are easy to make and a great quick hitter project, perfectly sized for scraps.
Here are the Tea Towel SWAP details:
WHAT/SIZE: Every participant will make and receive 2 tea towels to share with a friend. The pattern/style is makers choice and can be anything that displays your creative point of view. It is encouraged that you keep your design “scrappy”.
WHEN: Sign Up’s start NOW through February 17th, 2017. Packages must ship by March 3rd, 2017.
WHERE: Everywhere! This swap is open to everyone. Each participant will be paired with a partner in their general area to keep shipping costs low.
WHO: All fabric scrap lovers and stitchers are welcome! Please remember when joining any swap, your partner may have a different skill level. We offer helpful hints, technique based tutorials and because of our community atmosphere, you are able to get help and ask questions along the way.
Price: $5 per SWAP
Remember, you can create a tea towel from scratch if you like or you are welcome to purchase a pre-made plain towel and add embellishments. It really just depends on your style. The towels in the photo were made from fat quarters and embellished.
