  • Create an embroidered design or picture on a 6" x 6" (15.25 x 15.25 cm) square of 100% cotton fabric (any color) for your partner. Use any style of thread you wish. Be creative!

  • Use any knotted stitches (such as French knots, bullion stitch, etc.) as a main part of the design, but you may use additional stitches as well.

  • Include your name or Swap-Bot name and date somewhere on the square (except in the margin) -- embroidery or water-proof ink.

Knotted Stitches: Here are some resources, but feel free to use additional resources from online or in books/magazines.

You can always start working on it right now before you go on vacation... it is sender's choice =)

I changed the Send By Date to Sept 28th. I think that will help!
