Fall Table Runner Swap

I'm doing something wild and crazy here on the apron swap blog ... we're not going to swap aprons this time! (I really do have PLENTY of aprons, believe me.)  I've been talking for ages about how I need some new table linens, even whining to Jen S when she came all the way from Illinois this summer and saying I need to make some for myself, blah, blah.  Well, I haven't and my table is naked!  Ugly and naked!!  So, since a new table isn't in the budget this year, I need to dress it up and YOU'RE gonna help.  That is, if anyone joins ... so please sign up.  =)

SHAWNEE'S FALL TABLE RUNNER SWAP
Deadline to Enter: September 30
Mail Between: October 20 - 30
new swappers will have to ship early, so plan accordingly

Handcraft a lovely table runner for your partner and someone else will craft one for you! Include two small goodies for your partner (around $10 in value or so).

By signing up, you agree to ship 2-day priority and get a tracking number, post lots of pictures, and send me messages when you send and receive. Easy, huh??


I will post lots of images for ideas and links to tutorials.  I think this is gonna be a blast!!

 Click HERE to register (sorry, registrations closed, then come back and comment that you are IN.  If you post the badge and blog about this swap, leave a link to your post in the comments (even if you're not swapping).  I will have a fun prize for some lucky PR person!

  7. I want to joins bad but I'm inundated with a huge order for embroidered kids hair clips. I may be a last minute signup on the 30th depending on how far along I am on my order. I love the new theme and my table could use a festive runner for the fall.

  15. I just posted a blog post about your swap. Still trying to decide about joining. I just found out about it so don't have a whole lot of time to get it made so undecided about joining in. I have tried through the years to do swaps three times to be exact and have never received anything in return so hubby told me to stop. I send and don't get back in return. it would truly be fun to do a swap and actually get something. I know the host isn't responsible it is the swapee and so sad the some sign up and don't give back in return. oh well, I did post about your swap.
