Our guild is doing a different kind of fabric swap in 2009. We have been swapping fat eighths for many years and this year we're going to try a Nickel Swap. There is a color that has been chosen for each month and the participants are to bring in 15 pairs of the appropriate color each month in their zip lock bag. Janet and I labeled zip-lock bags today and placed them in folders, one for each month, with the color on the label. We also provided a bigger ziplock bag for nickels from their stash. I'm excited about this and hope we have lots of swappers.
Hopefully, there will be a workshop in early 2010 to make our Nickel Quilts.
