After the succes of the Closed - Prairie Schooler Fall/Winter Swap Round 2 - Send by Sept 12th , is anyone interested in a spring themed swap?

I really enjoyed the last one! I could be interested, but I need to make progress on my 2 big swaps first, so I wouldn’t want to sign up just yet.

I’d be interested as well…but the IYP send out is March 22nd and it is a pretty big one for me. Maybe closer to mid-April due date?

I moved this to new swap ideas. You would probably get more traction there. :blush:

I enjoyed this swap. I would have to wait until end of Feb since I’m signed up for the magnet swap.

I didn’t have a clear timeline in mind, so I’m fine with whatever timeline works for people.

I think last time we did a month of stitching time, right? And that seemed like enough time, I don’t remember anyone not being finished in time. We could do sign up by March 15, send out by April 15?

That sounds great to me! And there’s nothing stopping us doing a bit of pre-looking at patterns, and pre-stitching of course :cherry_blossom:

It’s almost March! I was thinking about signups from 7 to 15 March?? Then four weeks of stitch time. Like last year, we could let people decide if they want one or two partners.

@AIMR with your upcoming move, would you still be interested? I can totally imagine swapping is on hold for you for a while until you’re settled somewhere else.

I originally came up with the idea for a Prairie Schooler swap since the patterns have a specific look, are widely available online, and don’t require a lot of time, many different colours of thread or a lot of skill. Are people still interested in a Prairie Schooler swap or should we drop that?

I’m not really that invested in the Prairie Schooler brand but what I’m a bit concerned about, we’re all a bunch of crafty overachievers here. I want to make sure this remains an “easy” cross stitch swap.

lol I still have to continue my life…and I purposely left my embroidery stuff out…but, I have to clear a negative swap first…I should have that done by March 7th at the latest…I am at a good point for the IYP swap, so I would like to join if nothing comes up…

I enjoy Prairie Schooler patterns, so personally I like leaving it as those specifically.
I’m in the bookmark swap currently (and the magnet swap but sendouts are this thursday). The two shouldn’t interfere with each other since I’m crafting something mostly paper-related for it.

Would it be ok to go for a general Prairie Scooler style theme, but also allow for similar patterns? I’ve got a few vintage simple cross stitch patterns that might be nice for this.

I also like the style of some of my older patterns…I quite like patterns like prairie schooler that make a lovely design without tons of backstitching…
