Okay, this is a totally spur of the moment post, but while I was browsing fabrics, I wished I could get my hands on Anna Maria Horner's Dowry collection without spending an arm and a leg.
How about a charm swap using all of the prints in Dowry?? I know, right?!!!
General things you will need to know that will help you to decide if this swap is for you:
+26 spaces available (I'll account for the other two making 28 total)
+ each person buys 1.25 yds (.25 yard allows for any cutting mistakes)
+ charms are 5" x 5" squares and precision cutting is important
+each participant will receive 2 charms of each print in return for a total of 56 charms
+ each person is responsible for cutting, mailing, and paying for postage to mail the package back to you
+ fabric must be new and handled in a smoke free home
+ open to US residents
+ charm swaps typically run 4-6 weeks long to allow buying, cutting, and mailing time
+ sign ups will start this Monday, November 25th.
**There are 24 prints in the Dowry collection, but I would like to take a vote after the group is filled as to whether or not people would prefer additional larger scale Dowry prints or a few prints from other collections like Hand Drawn Garden. We'll need 4 additional prints, but we can work this out later.
Okay, so what I want to know is who is in?! Are there 26 people out there who would be interested?? In the meantime, I will work on another post with a sign up sheet, and all the other information that you will need.
