    So what are you going to "borrow"

    for next year? I know I will be making a bunch of those cute fruit pie potholders that scooter made for me. And the notebooks that several people made are such a good idea. it will be interesting to study the pictures as they come in.

    One of the things we did in one of the first swaps I did was to include the pattern name/maker in a note for each gift, if there was one. That way, if the recipient liked it and wanted to make more, they could.
    Seeing as I have used several of the patterns for gifts, I think it's a winner of an idea.
    That being said, I am totally going to pester Deb for the pattern for the composition book cover. I'm seeing these as gifts for my Paraeducator co-workers during appreciation week. The TicTacToe bag also has ideas churning for student gifts.
    I'm looking through the photos for other great ideas to poach for future swaps too.

      Such diversity came out of the 'themes' this year.
      Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!


      Secret Santa 2019

      About this Group

      Membership is now closed for 2019.

      We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non-stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

      This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 3 items during the year.

      If you would like to join please "subscribe", "join". Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will receive a questionaire from the mod
