Invitation to group two members

It seems that Alex who is the co ordinator of QBSA 2 has not been well, resulting in members from this group suffering.

As founder of the main group, I openly invite all members of the group 2 to email me, and I will welcome you to join group 1.

But here is a little history of Quilting Block Swaps Australia:

I started this first group in April 2010 as I could not find a locally run group like this (I was a member of a similar group from the USA). After forming the group it grew rapidly and went from 5 to 50 members in only a few short months.  At the same time I was also running Christmas Blocks swaps Australia.  It was all quite overwhelming so I sought help from some of my members, and Crafty Pugs took on the challenge of the Christmas group and Alex offered to be the co ordinator of the second group which was for an overflow of members from group one.  I have also since started up 6 inch block swaps Australia as there was interest from some ladies to make smaller blocks.  I still co ordinate that swap as well.

Things have settled down now, and I get one or two new members join every month, and at the same time this many leave us for various reasons.  I also find that every month up to 5 members sit out the swap so its quite under control.

If you are interested in joining group one, please email me to  in time when Alex is well again you can always transfer back to group 2, its up to you.

Quilted hugs, Sue
