How to JOIN quilting block swaps Australia

Hello and thank you for visiting. This is a community group for all Australian quilters to join or just follow. Membership is FREE and you are partnered each month and we make each other a 12 inch quilt block based on our preferences which we swap. (12.5 inches raw edge to raw edge) The emphasis of the group is on friendship and sharing. To find out more or register to join email me on quiltingblocks@hotmail.com This purpose of this blog is to chat and showcase blocks and quilts made by members, kind of like a show and tell . Yours in stitching, Sue

HELPERS PLEASE

Hi ladies
With an influx of new members it seems I am calling on the same ladies every 2-3 months to do a double swap.  Now I know they don't mind - but I am all about sharing it around.

So if you think you would like to be a double swap queen let me know and I will pop this on the data base, examples of when this is called upon are.

1. When we have an uneven number of members swapping in the month
2. When new members join up after the swaps have been sent out
(eg I have had 2 join today with a 3rd lady making enquiries) and the April partners were only sent out 2 days ago.  Note: New members are only paired with members that have been with the group for more than thre months.

I do keep tabs on who has done a double swap and the frequency of them but an example is that we had 5 double swaps last month and 3 in February.

I have 15 members registered for a double swap which means that they are doing one almost every second month.

Also, if someone joins past the middle of the month they do need to wait for the next month to be included in a swap so the pressure is not put on you in the end of the month.

Eligible members to be double swappers need to have been with the group for 3 months or more - just to make sure you fully understand how the group is run, but you can let me know if you would like to do this and I will automatically register you at the 3 month mark.
