Stalk it out ladies!!

Group Description

Do you love modern fabrics, quilting, and fabulous pieces to show off in your space? This modern swap will focus on a room in the home each swap. For round 5, We will be swapping ONE SMALL ITEM (ornament, mug rug, mini quilt or other small-ish item) focusing on a Fall/Christmas/Winter theme with a {modern} aesthetic. See the discussion page for the sign-up form.

Modernistas can join at any time for the next round if you don't get in for the current round.

Group Rules

Hi, there, so the reason I wanted this swap is a bit selfish, I just bought a new home and I want some cool modern stuff! So, here we go! Remember mailing will be on October 29th and October 22nd for international packages, please message your mama with any delays, late senders will sit out a round and no senders will not be allowed back, but that won't happen right, because modernistas can juggle some stuff!

1.Please remember to be nice and keep this group fun!

2. Quilt shop quality modern prints only, we are moderistas after all! Please no batiks, tone on tone, traditional patterns and florals, ferns, DS from Joann's is ok, etc. Please also take your partner's taste's into consideration, you shouldn't ask for certain lines, as we sew from stash, but don't try to make something work that just isn't. Just because you bought it from a quilt shop doesn't mean it's modern or your partner's taste.

3. This is a blind swap so please ensure that you don't reveal who you are to your partner

4. Updates are a must!! This helps keep the group fun and engaging, please commit to post something once per week, either a comment or photo of your progress.

5. We will include one larger swaped item (you request this in your mosiac) and a smaller item like a pouch, pincusion, small pillow, potholder, etc (this will be a wildcard from your partner) depending on the room.

6. Prior swapping is a must, you need to have proof in your photostream of MODERN swapping. If you do other swaps or make traditional items, that is certainly your biz, but if you have all traditional photos in your photostream, then you will not receive an invite. Please know that this is to keep the integrity of the items made and you can always work on this and play with us later.

7. Communicate any problems with deadlines immediately to your administrator. No senders will not be allowed to participate in future rounds. Late senders (over one week) will sit out a round.

8. Sign ups will be limited to the first 50 people or how every many we have prior to start date. Membership does not mean you are in the swap, we consider prior swapping and items in your photostream (modern projects are a must).

9. Your mosiac should include the item you would like or just list a surprise if you are ok with whatever. Your large item could be a floor mat, napkin/placemat set......etc! I will comment if your mosiac is not specific enough for extra guidance :) Please do not request any items that are cumbersome to ship, i.e. bulletin boards, etc.

10. Shipping with tracking is a must. Please ship priority within the US, it's not that much more, and it gets there pretty reliably.
