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:
1. Chicken pincushions, 2. Sew South Sample Swap, 3. #sewsouth, 4. drawstring pouches scrappy, 5. Sew South Sample Swap, 6. 4 pretty little purses ready for swapping at #SewSouth!, 7. Ruffled zip pouches, 8. Cosmetics Bag, 9. Sample Swap Sew South – fabric bowls, 10. Sew South sample swap, 11. sample swap bags, 12. Swap bags., 13. Ready for Sew South, 14. Fabric Notebooks for Sew South Swap, 15. 1-IMG_1508, 16. Quilt block holder by Teresa, 17. Crafty Queen apron by Margaret, 18. Market bag by Alex, 19. Sample Swap – Coffee Sleeves, 20. DSCN1044
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.)
I think I am in love with a chicken!
Really? Want to swap??
Much fun! Love your chicken pincushions!

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.
I got one of your cute chickens – thanks Linda!
Cluck cluck, so cute.
Your row of chickens is just adorable. I have never swapped anything!
I hadn’t either! But it sure was fun. Let’s swap something together. Want a chicken?
