Fall zipper bag swap

via Alidiza

With several challenges ongoing through the Modern Quilt Guild, we decided to forego a challenge for the guild this fall and instead launch a swap. With that said, we’re excited to launch our 2015 swap today – the zippered pouch swap. With such great participation by members in our zippered pouch challenge at retreat, we decided that a zippered pouch swap would be a quick, easy and fun way for members to participate in a great swap.

On to the details…

The premise: Make a zippered pouch using modern fabrics. That’s it! Because you won’t know who will receive the pouch we ask that you refrain from using holiday-specific fabrics.

Size: There isn’t a specific size requirement, but we ask that you make something larger than a coin purse. Basically, make something that you would like to receive. Be creative!

Deadline: The November 21st meeting

Delivery: The swap will take place live at the meeting. Bring your item wrapped up to the meeting. We’ll randomly draw numbers associated with pouches to determine what pouch you’ll go home with. Swapping at the end of the meeting is allowed.

Added Incentive: ZipIt has graciously offered up four prizes for our swap. Those that participate will automatically be entered into the drawing to win a prize package of zippers. 

Zipit has also provided a discount for all members. Please check your email for the discount code, which was mailed to you on August 30.
