  • Ribbon (3 yards or more)
  • Buttons - either 1 large, 2 medium or 3 small
  • One Profile Surprise Item (does not need to be sewing related)

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 and with fully completed profiles.

EDIT: PLEASE NOTE - Sending group swaps no later than the send-by date is considered a swap requirement. In the rare circumstance that you must send late, please contact your partner AND the swap host prior to the send date. Thank you for your consideration!

Please say below which colour/scheme you would like this month!

I would love the combination of either Pink & Red or Pink & Aqua! Thanks! :)

YvonneCrea 12/ 3/2010 #

Combination red and white.

I would love anything paisley! And I can always use pink and brown colors. Or just surprise me!

I do not use DMC floss, so a spool of thread would be best.

jannikinz 12/ 3/2010 #

Turquoise or Aqua would be lovely. please no batiks. thankyou.

clkea 12/ 4/2010 #

i really like this swap...but when sending international..i think it will be very pricy..dont you think? and because my date is 5 january (little brother is coming) im going to watch this swap...and maybe next time will participate!!

katiewoo 12/ 4/2010 #

I'm in! Please may I have ocean/sea themed colours (I'm desperately trying to finish a quilt!). No floss thanks but some variegated thread would be wonderful!!

whiteway 12/ 4/2010 #

HI @sandra2504

I have hosted this swap for sooo long now (over a year and a half), and have always had it international! All my international friends would have a uproar if I changged it to Regional - Haha!

I think most people sign up thinking that they could possibly get a partner overseas and prepare themselves for the postage (like not signing up for too many swaps, etc).

Hope to see you next time! :)

Sunflower yellow/golden for me, please! By the end of January, I'm sure I'll be ready for some bright sunshine again.

I'm partial to thread, if possible -- I've got embroidery floss coming out my ears!

Just a small note to all swappers. Please be kind and send on time! if you send your item past the due date you run the risk of getting a three. But anything after that, you might run the risk of being removed from the group.If you have any questions you can pm me any time. Robin

scoob 12/ 8/2010 #

how about snowflake colors? white, gray, silver

Cakers 12/11/2010 #

I'm changing up my bedroom to brighter colors so that would be awesome if that could be considered - colors like coral, lime green, yellow, bright blue, etc. If you'd like more ideas let me know! Thanks!

whiteway 12/28/2010 #

Hi @beppie Thanks for your interest in this swap!!

Maybe I am daft but what colours are lila and clyclame? Haha!

I totally don't know what they are and I want to make sure your partner will be clear on what you are asking for! :)


kari 12/30/2010 #

@beppie - are those colors shades of purples?

mumbles17 12/31/2010 #

turquiose or aqua for me please

morgainegeiser 12/31/2010 #

any color, as long as the print is small, I don't use floss, but use tons of thread.

morgainegeiser 12/31/2010 #

Clyclame is a flower and it usually has pink or purple blooms. Maybe she meant lilac and just missed the "c" and if that is the case maybe she is looking purples.

FloatingQueen 12/31/2010 #

Red &White, or Black & white please

PenguinParade 12/31/2010 #

Pink & Black or Lavender & Crimson

rosiefsw 01/ 1/2011 #

I'm short of pastels in my stash. I'd love anything except children's prints.

kari 01/ 1/2011 #

I like turquoise/cherry red/white combo, chocolate/aqua combo, aqua/lime combo and pink/orange combo. Thanks! :-)

beppie 01/ 2/2011 #

Yes, i believe their colors shades of purple. I also like soft blue.. So sorry for my late respond, I was away a few days
