SWAP Entry 2013 Final Pix.
I have now finished my very first SWAP (Sewing With A Plan) 2013. I had a lot of fun joining in this adventure. You have seen my posts along the way. I am making this post merely of the collection as a whole all in one post. Photo submissions start on May 10th and close on May 18th. I'm not sure when voting occurs, how it is handled, or any of those logistics. That info will be revealed as time draws nearer. I am so excited to see everyone's collections! We were all given some sneak peeks of some, and then there are some quiet members who will unveil at the end. Everyone has so much talent this will be hard to vote - I'll want to vote for so many of them. I'm glad I joined the Stitcher's Guild Forum when I did - Last Sept/Oct, because I jumped in on a winter 6PAC sew-along, which gave me a little boost of confidence to join the SWAP 2013.
