The RULES {Please Read & Sign}

view profile

StitchedInColor is a group administrator StitchedInColor says:

Why Rules? To avoid misunderstandings. To help us finish what we've set out to do. So we can all play nice, bless others and have fun while we're at it!

All Members:

* Check our Flickr page at the beginning of each month for your circle's monthly project instruction/discussion thread.
* Complete your blocks by the end of the month.
* Post a picture of your blocks to the Flickr group by the end of the month.
* Any blocks received by the quilter after the 10th of the following month are considered "late".
* If your blocks are late more than 3 times within 6 months, you will be issued a warning.
* You will be asked to step down from participating if your blocks are late 4 or more times within 6 months.
* If for any reason you would like to stop participating, you can step down with no hurt feelings. Please let your circle host and Rachel of Stitched in Color know your plans. Complete the current month and go with our blessings.

Quilters (when it's your month to quilt):

* Create your project's instruction/discussion thread by the 1st of the month.
* Check your discussion thread throughout the month in order to answer any questions about your project.
* After the 10th of the following month, report to your circle host any blocks that still have not arrived. If all have arrived, let your circle host know that!
* After the 15th of the month, you may decide to complete the quilt without waiting on any missing blocks. Waiting or going without them is up to you.
* Complete the quilt by the end of the following month. For example, if September was your month as quilter, complete your quilt by the end of October.
* Share a picture of the completed quilt on our Flickr page, and let us know that you've mailed or delivered it to the charity! If September was your month as quilter, we'll expect to see the picture of your finished quilt by the first week of November.

Hosts:

* Email the quilter's address to your circle each month.
* Expect to hear from your quilter after the 10th of the month regarding the status of the previous month's blocks. Take note of late members.
* If any member's blocks are late 3 times within 6 months, notify Rachel of Stitched in Color. Rachel will issue a warning privately to that member.
* If any member's blocks are late 4 or more times within 6 months, notify Rachel.
* If the quilter does not post a finished picture of the quilt on time, please contact the quilter to check in.

Fabric Rules

This sewing bee is designed to minimize shipping and fabric costs by working from our own fabric stashes.

Quilters MAY require the use of particular Kona solids in their design. However, they must OFFER to provide those solids to any members of the circle who request them. This rule gives incentive for quilters to come up with a design that doesn't need a particular color and gives the opportunity for bee members to provide the solid themselves if possible.

Members of the circle have 7 days to review the quilt design and request solids if necessary. Contact the quilter directly via Flickr mail. You must contact the quilter within 7 days so that he/she is able to get the solids to you in time!

Remember, the overarching concept of this bee is to use fabric from your own stash, which eliminates waste. If you are able to conveniently purchase the solid requested by your quilter and it is not a burden to you, please do so! We are all in this together.

Quilters - If you know in advance that your design will require a specific Kona, please share that fact as soon as possible with your circle. Even if you add the design details of your project later, you could always post a note in the discussion threads before the first of your month. This may increase the likelihood that your circle is able to provide the solid themselves.

Friends,

I am always here to discuss your concerns. I welcome your suggestions! Late blocks make it difficult on the quilter who may need to be able to complete the quilt during a specific window of opportunity. I hope that setting out rules will help everything run smoothly and that it never comes to asking anyone to step down!

xo Rachel, Stitched in Color
