Some Bunny Love You!

Who can participate: 

This swap is open to all SRESafeHaven list members.  International swappers are VERY welcome here! Contact me by email to sign up or if you have further questions.  Let me know if you are willing to swap internationally, because International swappers are always WELCOMED!!!

Sign up:

Swappers can sign up through March 01, 2002.  I should be able to accommodate sign ups after that date, so let me know if you are interested and feel that you can complete an item before the due date.  

Deadline:

Items should be mailed by April 15, 2002. This has to be better than paying taxes!

Incentives for timely completion:

A brand new copy of An Encyclopedia of Crazy Quilt Stitches & Motifs by Linda Causee.  (Furnished by your hostess. )

As a thank you, several runner-up prizes will also be drawn for this swap.  I will be giving away five Applause Spring Time Stuffed Bunnies.  

All participants who complete and mail their finished item on time will be eligible to win this random drawing.  

Finished Item:

This will be a swap for a small finished item of your choice, utilizing the theme of bunnies to celebrate spring. It was a True Color's kit called "Baby Bunny" designed by Terry Albright that got this swap started.  Finished items such as a stuffed bunny, CQ rabbit, framed item, wall hanging,  pillow, pincushion, needle book, chatelaine, eyeglass case or just about anything embellished with rabbits would do!  It would also be acceptable to buy a stuffed rabbit and add your own embellishment!  You may want to contact your assigned partner once they have been assigned to see if they have a preference.  This gives you a lot of room to improvise with technique and style.  It is not required that the item be specifically done with either SRE or CQ.  However, the item should be embellished in some manner!  You can choose be silk ribbon, shadow work or any other form of embroidery, beading, polymer clay or just about anything else, so long as you are true to the theme of bunnies!

Swap Partners:

On or about March 1, 2002, swap partners will be randomly assigned.  If there are late entries or if there needs to be an additional person, I will fill in for the extra person or ask for volunteers.  You may elect to swap with more than one person.  

Additional Details:

Anyone can drop out at any time prior to receiving an item with no questions asked. If someone needs to drop out after he/she has already gotten an item, then I will deal with that on a case by case basis. As hostess, I will make sure that ALL participants who send an item, get an item, even if it comes from me.  

Please let me know if you are willing to swap internationally or would be willing to take on new partners if someone should drop out after assignments have been made.
