If anyone is on the fence about the scavenger hunt or has been meaning to send me an email to join, please do so now. I'm about ready to make the pairings but we're at an odd number. It would be really helpful to get one more participant!

Keep in mind that in order to participate in the scavenger hunts, you must have successfully completed at least one other swap on this forum.

Here's another question about the swaps. Are you picky about where we get the cloth? Some swaps I've seen require it be from the higher end fabric stores and outlaw anything from Joann's. I'm just curious because I was thinking about joining in for the November swap because I've seen several cute animal prints recently, but I wanted to know before I started buying cloth what the rules were on that.

the only requirement is that you buy GOOD quality fabric, there are some expensive fabrics that are not very good as far as i am concerned, yet some of the the cheaper ones are very good. we also only swap 100% cotton fabrics on the swaps. so use your best judgment in it, if it is a quality that you are happy with and you know that you can't punch a finger through :-) because it is so thin, it will be ok. hope this helps.
