Swap #1- Bags

You'll be paired with another participating Columbus Modern Quilters member and have until the May 24 meeting to make a bag just for them. You can make any type of bag, please make what your swap partner suggests or something very similar. 

To participate, complete THIS FORM and you will be emailed your partner's information on April 1st. You must be a dues-paying member to participate. you can pay at the next meeting and still sign up. Partnerships are SECRET so you won't know who is making for you. You must be at the swap reveal meeting to exchange your item. If you are unable to attend, your item must be sent with someone else, dropped off, or mailed it to Leigh M to bring to the meeting. Please message Leigh if you are unable to attend.

Per the Swap Rules, you will not receive the item made for you until the item you made is received. Remember to use quilt shop quality fabric and do your best work. Make something you’d be proud to receive/use, taking into consideration your partner’s likes/dislikes (we'll give you their Instagram and/or Pinterest information.
Part of the fun of participating in secret swaps is posting preview photos and trying to guess who your partner is.  We encourage you to be active in the FB group and/or IG and share photos of your items as you’re making them. Please use the hashtag #cbusmqswap when you share your photos.
