  • Ribbon (3 yards or more)
  • Buttons - either 1 large, 2 medium or 3 small

Please be creative - take a look at your partner's profile to see what she likes/dislikes. Does she like polka dots?stripes?floral?certain patterns?etc?

The Profile Surprise item can be something handmade, a pin cushion, or something you buy or have in your stash, like a bookmark, notecards, embellishments, scrapbooking supplies, socks, etc. The profile surprise item does not need to be sewing related.

This swap is open to all NFS members in good standing, no outstanding swaps, and with fully completed profiles.
