2013 Mug Rug Swap

Swap Guidelines

Mug Rug Swap

Partner info has been sent to all approved participants. Please check your spam folder if you didn’t get it BEFORE contacting me.

I’m thrilled to team up with Amanda from The Patchsmith to bring you this exciting mug rug swap. Amanda has designed these two super cute mug rug patterns, which you will receive once your swap registration is approved.

Owl Pattern

Winter Birdhouse Pattern

For this swap, you will be making both mug rugs, Two Owls and Winter Birdhouse, to send to your secret partner. You can use any appliqué style you like, as long as it is stitched down securely. Your mug rugs must be quilted and bound securely (no zig zag edges!). Check out Amanda’s blog, The Patchsmith for some mug rug tutorials. She will be adding new tutorials over the next couple of weeks as well.

You can add embellishments (beads, buttons, etc.) to your mug rugs if you like. Please include a small label, with your name, country, etc., on the back of the mug rugs. The mug rugs should be washable. Make something you would love to receive and I’m sure your partner will love them too.

Registration for this swap closes January 28th. Partner information will be sent January 31st. The deadline to mail your mug rugs quilt is March 11th for international shipments (including Canada/USA) and March 18th for domestic shipments. All mug rugs should arrive at their destination no later than March 30th.

Everyone can join! The swap is open to participants living anywhere in the world. However, if you are sending from South America, the Middle East or Africa, please send your package a week or two earlier than the dates indicated so that it arrives on time.

It’s a SECRET swap, so please don’t tell your partner who you are in advance (unless you want to), but go ahead and post pictures of your progress on your blog and in the Flickr group.

Gifts: You are not required to send any additional gifts to your swap partner. You may do so if you wish, but keep in mind the partner assigned to you may not send you any additional goodies. Also note, some countries do not allow certain food and plant materials to be imported. Do not ship candles.

Registration Fee

The registration fee for this swap is $5.00 USD or you can send me a fat quarter. This fee includes both mug rug patterns.

Once you’ve completed the registration form you can then pay the registration fee through PayPal or get instructions for sending me a fat quarter. If you choose to send a fat quarter, please note that I have paid the designer in advance for your patterns, so please be kind and send the fat quarter right away.

Note: Quilters that have been a swap angel for me in the past or one of the swap designers are not required to pay the registration fee (ever).

Important Notes:

Please make sure my email address, michele@quiltinggallery.com has been added to your safe email list. Once you’ve submitted your registration info, you will receive an email to verify that the information is accurate. You must review the information and reply to this email so that I know I am able to email you and that the information entered is accurate. If you do not receive your verification email, it should arrive within minutes, that means I was unable to email you. Please check your spam folder first, then contact me.

You will receive a confirmation email once your registration has been approved (including the two patterns). This review and approval is done manually, and may take up to 72 hours to be completed (longer on weekends). You will then be added to the participants’ list.

Don’t forget to pay the Registration Fee as I don’t review/approve registrations until payment has been made.

Please do not register more than once! Wait patiently for your registration to be reviewed and approved.
