We are very excited here at GWSMQG to announce our collaboration with Vancouver MQG, and Brisbane MQG combining forces to take part in the Teeny Weeny Swap! This swap is only open to financial members of these guilds.

The ”Teeny Weeny” bit refers to the piecing, not the actual size of the finished item, which is obligatory in this swap. It can be paper-pieced, patchwork piecing, English paper pieced, improv pieced, which may then be hand-appliquéd, but it must be pieced in some way – machine appliqué is not permitted. The overall look and feel should be intricate, cute and “zakka-tastic.

One of our members Sheridan has made a mosaic  with links to the individual photos within the mosaic, should you feel inspired by these photos.

Swap partners have a choice of what item they would like made for them: pouch, needlebook, sunglasses/spectacles case, collapse-able thread catcher, mug rug, or passport cover.

The deadline for VMQG to finish their items is November 17th, 2014, and for GQSMQG & Brisbane MQG, items are to be handed in on the 18th of November. Items should be flat for shipping purposes, and no ”extras” are to be added to the item, in the interest of keeping postage costs down. However, all a small note addressed to your partner is absolutely fine!

Swap partners should have already received their questionnaires filled out by their secret swap person, so let the fun begin!

Don’t forget to hashtag your progress online using the hashtag #teenyweenyswap, and if you have a blog, why not use our challenge badge?
