Well, a couple of people have contacted me about a towel exchange so I think I’m going to go ahead and get it going.
Towels need to be a minimum of 16″ wide and 20″ long (after being washed and hemmed). This should allow those people with smaller looms like Wolf Pups to join. The sign up deadline date is Friday, July 13th at midnight. If you want to be apart of this exchange, please email me at basicallybenita at yahoo dot com and put “towel exchange” in the subject line. To keep this doable, I’d like to limit this to 8 people. I will send out emails to everyone who signs up on Saturday the 14th so you will know how many towels to weave.
Once we have everyone set up, I will email an info sheet master to everyone to fill in with patterns, sample threads, etc. that will be submitted with the towels. In order to be a part of the exchange, you need to be willing to weave one towel for each participant. If we get 8 people, you will need to weave 7 towels, since you won’t need to have one mailed back to yourself. Think of all those patterns you’ve been wanting to try out – here’s your chance. Just pick one and go!
The deadline for weaving the towels and getting them to me will be Monday August 27th. This will give you 6 weeks to weave the towels. Also, this will make sure I have them by that weekend and it will give me the three-day weekend to get everything sorted out, packaged up and ready for the mail on the day after Labor Day. Because of the cost to mail them, I am going to limit this exchange to the US.
So, if you want to be a part of this towel exchange, let me know. The clock is ticking!
