Sew South – Swaps!

One of the many things that made the Sew South Retreat so much fun were the swaps. Anyone who wanted to participate in the “Sample” Swap, made up 4 of one thing they wanted to swap. At the retreat, we were divided into random groups of 5 and we each gave one of our 4 samples to the other 4 people in our group. Here is a sampling of what participants gave and received:

I made up these chicken pincushions and was able to swap for a few more than 4 things because I had 6 of them!

    Those little chickens are so cute! I missed seeing them in person. Love the mosaic!

    • I’m sorry that you didn’t see them. They are pretty funny. I had a 7th one that I gave to Leah Day (since she has live chickens at her home.)

    The chicken pincushions are so darn cute! I love the enthusiasm this conference exudes. It is like a breath of fresh air for quilting.

    • Not just for quilting – but for sewing. Everyone who came was a quilter but the conference was designed to teach some new skills to make everyone try something new in an encouraging atmosphere.
