***** WHAT TO SWAP *****
Make 1 mug rug (can be festive themed or not) to post out to a fellow swapper and in return you'll get a mug rug of your own from a swapper. (Note: the person you're sending to may not be the person you receive from.)
****** SIZE REQUIREMENTS ******
The mug rug must meet the following size requirements:
Minimum size - 4" x 6"
Maximum size - 6" x 10"
If you do a shape other than a rectangle, the biggest side of the shape cannot exceed 10".
The mug rug MUST BE QUILTED - this means there's 3 layers: a back, a front and a layer of wadding of some sort (can be flannel, batting, fusible batting, insulated batting, etc.)
****** IMPORTANT ******
You must use good quality quilting weight cottons. (We want this mug rug to last through multiple washes and spills.)
The beauty of a mug rug is that it'll fit in a standard size letter and be quite light, so because of that I'm only running one worldwide swap. (This means you may have to post internationally.)
****** Swap Extras ******
There's no need to include any extras with this swap so please don't feel like you have to, but if you'd like to it's always a nice inclusion. (Just make sure to check your partners details to make sure they don't have any allergies, etc.)
****** Give unto Others ******
It should go without saying, but just so we're clear: only swap material that you would be happy to receive and use in a quilt yourself. This means swapping quilting quality material (preferably cotton). Using a mix of pattern and colour that you think your partner would like. (Obviously this one is a little subjective, so again if you'd be happy to use it swap it - if in doubt probably best to either contact the person you're swapping with to see if they'd like it or maybe keep it for yourself (and your own house quilt!).)
****** Communication is Key ******
I understand that life sometimes throws you a curve ball and means that you can't always do what you would like, so if for any reason you have to pull out of the swap just drop me (and if you're so inclined) your partners an email to let me know and we'll work around it. The more warning you can give the better so that I can redirect packages, etc.
****** Time is Money ******
Please post your swap items to your swap partner by the postage date specified. If you're anything like me just knowing that something is coming in the mail is uber exciting, so it would be great if all our packages arrive around the same time so that we can all celebrate together.
****** Quilt Karma ******
Ultimately a swap like this is only as good as what you put in to it so please remember to treat everyone as you would expect to be treated. Chances are if you shaft someone today, you'll be shafted tomorrow. Questions
If you have any questions at all please let me know.
