THE SWAP RETURNS - DO THIS AND GET 42 DIFFERENT FABRICS EACH MONTH

1.       Choose either a color or a design from the monthly list and find 6 fabrics of that color or design.

2.       Cut a 6 inch wide strip across each of the fabrics. Then cut each strip into 7 squares.

3.       Sort the 42 total squares into 7 sets containing one square of each fabric.

4.       Put a set of fabrics in each of 6 letter sized envelopes and seal. (Hold the 7th set at home.)

5.       PRINT your first and last name on each envelope and either the color or the design you chose.

6.       Put a rubber band around your set of envelopes.

7.       At the beginning of meeting, find the SWAP sign and register by printing your name and the color or design of the fabrics in your envelopes on the clipboard.  Leave your set of envelopes next to the clipboard.

8.       At the second break in the meeting a swapped set of envelopes will be ready and marked with your name for pick up. You will receive 6 envelopes from different people.  The envelopes contain 36 different fabrics, plus the 6 you left at home makes 42 different fabrics total.
