25 Feb #SewtopiaSwap

The #SewtopiaSwap has been at each event and it’s always fun for those that choose to participate. The swap is blind, meaning that you make a swap item and then you get one back. If you’re participating in the swap, we ask that you bring it wrapped and turn the present in at the check-in. Our staff will distribute the swap items Friday night so participants will open the item Saturday morning.

Here are the general rules:

  • Spending limit is $15, don’t break the bank with the swap item
  • Handmade preferred but not necessary
  • Bring your swap wrapped with a from tag so the recipient knows who to thank
  • Don’t worry if you don’t do the swap. . . we will only hand out swap gifts to those that participated.

Ideas for swap items:

  • Make something that you love, out of fabrics you adore
  • Smalls category would be anything smaller than a 24×24 pillow or mini, mug rug, pin cushion, something for a sewing area, or a pouch
