I was happy to see some interest in the first two swaps. It's not too late to join the series now! If there are enough participants, I will continue to make this a monthly swap series so we can collect Monday-Sunday. I just love hand embroidery!
This month, we will all embroider a WEDNESDAY towel. We will:
Flour Sack Towels on Amazon
Flour Sack Towels from Aunt Martha's
Flour Sack Towels on Dharma Trading Company
These towels are also usually available at Hobby Lobby, Joann's, Michael's, and similar craft stores.
Vintage Style Striped Towels like the first 4 styles on this page would also be suitable for this swap.
Here are many examples of embroidered Days of the Week towels.
Choose any commercial "Days of the Week" embroidery pattern. The pattern selected is sender's choice.
Please imprint the WEDNESDAY pattern on your towel and fully embroider it. The embroidery must be done by hand, not by machine.
Wash your towel after you embroider it! There should not be hoop marks left on the towel when you mail it. You may wish to run a quick iron over it; though these towels hold on to some wrinkles, it shouldn't be excessively wrinkled. Please make an effort to ensure that your towel arrives in ready-to-use condition.
Do your best work! However, this swap is open to embroidery beginners. Please be prepared to receive an embroidered towel with full effort but perhaps developing skill. :-)
Send on time. Rate promptly. Please contact the recipient and the swap host in the rare circumstance that you must be late.
Be sure to enclose a note of a couple of sentences to personalize the swap and give important details (swap name, user name, etc.).
This swap is open to all Nuts for Sewing & Crafting members in good standing with no unresolved 1s or 3s (please PM the host if there's an extenuating circumstance) and a minimum of 10 rated Type 3 swaps.
