Fabric Exchange! January 25, 2011

At our next East Bay Modern Quilt Guild meeting, we’re supposed to bring a quilt/sewing project that just… did… not… work… out!  I have mine!  go here for meeting logistics>>

We also thought it’d be fun to have an impromptu fabric exchange.  Nothing formal, just bring a couple pieces from your stash that could use a new home.  If you don’t have any extras, don’t sweat it.  There will still be lots to share!

We really don’t have rules about the exchange, but courtesy would be: natural fabrics only, large pieces (say, “fat quarter’ish” – no scraps), and plan to take home a few less than you brought.

Leftovers will be donated to the Children’s Quilt Project.

Here are a few snapshots of the fabrics I’ll be bringing for the EBMQG fabric exchange… that is, if they don’t somehow demand to be sewn first!  I had a few more pieces in the give-away bin last week, but they got drafted into capes for 2 New Year’s Eve costumes!

    Oooh, I’ve got my eye on at least one of those! I’m going to have to start going through my stash. I’m sure there’s something there I can bear to part with!

    So, I can bring stuff with the intention of just donating it, right? Bonus if any of you actually want it. As for the project that just didn’t work, I’ll have to dig for one…

      Great!
      Really, this is primarily intended to be an exchange — a chance to chat and mingle and share a few pieces of fabric. It’s very nice to think about donating too… just follow the guidelines. 100% cotton fabrics and pieces that are at least fat quarter size. Bring them in a way you’d like to present them to new friends. :)

    ah felt good to leave more then take home! Personally I like the challenge of not buying any fabric for a period of time and really making do!
