What is SWAP DAY you ask? Well, 8 years ago I had an idea to put a basket out the back of the shop for unwanted stash items and to invite other quilters to "swap" their unwanted stash items....a quilters dream as it makes a reality of the statement: "one man's trash is another's treasure!"
A group of our favourite trusty quilter friends came in support and rummaged, swapped and enjoyed a cuppa while picking up a few sale items. It was a fun day that lead to bigger ideas....
Selling trinkets, fabrics, patterns, quilts as well as our international trading friends became a big part of the day.
We also decided to make it a day to show off the quilts made by our design team as well as the members of our classes. It is our time to show off what our beautiful students have produced!!!
Out the back we still do the swap bucket and add to that a bit of a sale...did I say a bit? I mean a HUGE sale.
It is a time to meet and greet, chat and peruse while celebrating the creativity of gathering women.
It is ALWAYS a special day for my beautiful team of quilters....friends new and old...Each year we find new friends that join our classes inspired by the freespirited creativity encouraged within our world.
So what is SWAP Day? Well a gathering of like minded people to celebrate what we love...things and each other. Please join us!
