Over on the Stitching Hangout we are about to start a Chocolate Swap. Yes other groups have talked about this on and off for a few months now, but we are DOING IT!
So, for our first exchange the theme will be ….. CHOCOLATE. You can send to your designated partner chocolate bars, chocolate boxes. Some people unfortunately do not or cannot eat it so the exchange will also include chocolate themed stitching items. Charts, threads, fabrics etc. If you don’t stitch then chocolate cookery recipes, or items. Chocolate to drink. If none of this is suitable then how about chocolate wool for those who knit or chocolate coloured fabric for the quilters. Its just a case of using your imagination and we all know that you all have loads of that 🙂 :).
Postage for such an exchange can quickly escalate, especially if you elect to send internationally. We request that you keep your package around one pound or under 500gm in weight. For those feeling more expansive the maximum weight is 2lbs.
We’ve set up a database but please be VERY EXPLICIT in your likes and dislikes. The more you put down, the better your partner can pick something you really like. Sign ups will be until the middle of June and I’ll send out partners around the end of the month.
Anyone can join in. The more the merrier.
