THE SWAP RETURNS - HERE IS WHAT TO DO TO GET 42 DIFFERENT FABRICS EACH MONTH.

  • Choose either a color or a design from the monthly list and find 6 fabrics of that color or design.
  • Cut a 6 inch wide strip across each of the fabrics. Then cut each strip into 7 squares.
  • Sort the 42 total squares into 7 sets containing one square of each fabric.
  • Put a set of fabrics in each of 6 letter sized envelopes and seal. (Hold the 7th set at home.)
  • PRINT your first and last name on each envelope and either the color or the design you chose.
  • Put a rubber band around your set of envelopes.
  • At the beginning of meeting, register with the swap domo and pass in your envelopes.
  • At the end of the meeting, pick up your swapped envelopes. You will be returned envelopes from 6 different people.  The envelopes contain 36 different fabrics, plus the 6 you left at home makes 42 different fabrics total.
