Sheet Square Swap

If you're interested in participating in a Sheet Square Swap (or maybe just a fabric square swap, or both), please leave a comment on this post so I can get an idea if enough people are interested. If there's more than 10 people, I'd need to know if anyone else would be willing to be a "swap mama". Here's how the swap would work:

A group would consist of 11 people (10 + 1 swap mama). Each person in the group would choose 20 fabrics (or sheets) and cut 10 6" squares of each fabric. That would amount to a total of 200 squares. You send your squares to your swap mama, and she in turn, organizes and assembles the 200 squares for each member and sends them out. Last year I did this same swap but we did 500 squares. I loved getting all those fabrics, but it was definitely a lot of cutting. I think 20 is much more manageable.

Please note that this is NOT a sign up for the swap. I just want to get an idea of how many people are interested. If enough are interested, I'll have sign-ups close sometime next week and mail out deadlines at the end of July/ beginning of august. If you are interested, please let me know the following:
would you be interested in swapping vintage sheets or fabrics, or both?
Is 20 different fabrics too much or just right?
Are you interested in being a "swap mama"?

Thanks!

I can do fabric.

20 is good.
I can help if you need it, I was thinking of doing it again myself anyway. :-)

I would totally be interested in this....I participated in the Vintage Sheet Swap too and I can't wait to see what I get back! I would be up for either vintage sheets or fabrics. I could also be a swap mama:):)

I would love to join!
Is it ok that I live in Europe... how would we pay for your expenses?

I think 200 squares sounds right and I could do a combination of sheets and fabrics, since I don't own a lot of vintage sheets.

This would be so much fun!

Pick me please..... if you are prepared to have an Aussie join in. I have been collecting vintage sheets and was sad that I missed the sheet square swap too.

I'm definitely interested and I think 20 is a good number. I'd have a hard time coming up with 20 vintage sheets, but fabric or a mix of fabric/vintage sheets would be great.

Leslie said...

Karen said...

Would love to join. Hope I'm not too late;)

I could join in if it was a combo of vintage sheets and fabrics. I may not be able to get 10 squares out of each print, but I can come up with 200 squares. :)
