Hi! Thank you for celebrating International Women's Day by joining this swap and for your generous donation to Beautiful World Canada. Together we will make changes to the lives of young women living in poverty and at risk. We will also piece beautiful projects and an awesome community of makers together. Be sure to have purchased a "Sisterhood Swap" listing from "Happysewluckyshop" on Etsy to secure your spot in the swap. The listing can be found here:
Please fill in your details below so that we can get this party started!
NAME: (first and last please)
ETSY USER NAME (to tie your purchase to your application form)
Are you willing to be a "Circle Mama"? (You will be responsible for keeping the seven sisters in your circle, plus yourself, updated and on time)
YES I'm up for it!
No thanks! But I will happily welcome reminders and advice from my Circle Mama.
If yes, have you been a Swap Mama before? (Please give info)
Do you wish to have the Sisters in your circle appointed for you, or do you have a specific group of 8 you'd like in your circle. (Note: Must be a full group of 8.)
Yes please, send me a circle of sisters from around the globe!
I have eight specific Sisters in mind! Please make us a group. We will ALL name each other on our forms.
If you have a requested a specific circle of Sisters, provide the names of the other 7 in your group as well as a name for your circle. (Everyone in this group must list the same circle name, and all name the same people to be included please.)
Have you purchased the Swap listing on Etsy yet? If not go to "HappySewLuckyShop" and purchase it and then check YES! Thanks.
YES! I'm all paid up and rearing to go!
No. (..um, refer to instructions in question above. This is a pay to play swap with all profit being donated. )
Do you understand that you need to make your blocks and mail them by APRIL 27, 2019?
YES! I'm committed to creating and sharing awesomeness with my sisters!
Nope, not going to happen! (Sorry friend, but this may not be the swap for you.)
Do you understand that the bodies are Foundation Paper-Pieced through paper (not using the folded Freezer Paper technique) and the heads are to be HAND appliquéd on? And that the blocks are to be shipped trimmed to size with the paper left on?
YES! I get it!
Maybe (Sorry, these are the swap rules so that everyone gets the same standard of work. Alternative techniques not negotiable. Sorry.)
Do you understand what "Low Volume" fabric is?
Yup. I'm on it.
Maybe? (Check the pics in the listing. Some info will be sent by email too.)
Nope, haven't a clue. (When in doubt Google it, sister!)
Do you understand that the arms & heads are to be pieced from SOLIDS in various skin tones? (Matching arms & head)
Yes! I know what solids are and I embrace the human race!
Do you understand that your blocks need to take your Sisters' dress fabric requests into consideration?
YES! I'm all over it.
No (C'mon you can totally do it. That's the fun part!)
Do you understand that your work needs to be neat, clean and free of cat hair when you mail it?
YES! I want neat clean blocks sent to me too, so I totally get it!
NO! "What, no cat hair??! No grubby chocolate stains?!!" (Yup that's right! No schmutz allowed! Checking this box is not a good idea, Honey!)
OK! Now that we've gotten all that out of the way, tell us a little about you to inspire the fabric for your dresses! Give your Sisters a little direction to go on, but not a novel, please. (Note specific questions on fabric colour, designers etc below.)
Colour palette for my dresses:
Fave fabrics or designers:
Not so fave fabrics and colours: (Be respectful. Your sister might love what you do not)
OK I think that should do it. Are you all set? (I'll try to get your Circle info to you as soon as I can. Stay updated by checking @happysewlucky on Instagram. )
Yes! Doing stretches to warm up. Already pulling low volumes fabrics!!!
Maybe? (Watch the Youtube tutorials to brush up your FPP skillz.)
No (Hmm. Sorry to hear that. Find a Sister to hold your hand along the way. It'll be fun. Really!)
