I SPY Swap - Fall 2020

Join us for our first round of this modern I SPY Swap! Signing up and taking part in this program is completely free!

Whats an I SPY, you say?
An I SPY quilt features novelty cottons and prints with images that are easily identifiable & would capture a child's attention. The quilt is made to engage a young one in a game of I SPY, with them searching over the blocks of the quilt to find the images. "I Spy with my little apple! a tractor! a raccoon!"

The swap is a fun and inexpensive way to accumulate the multiple images needed for an I SPY Quilt. All you need to do is buy 0.6 meters of cotton fabric and cut it into 32 5" x 5" squares, submit them to the shop, and at the end of the event you will receive the same amount of fabric back but in an assortment of new and exciting prints!

Rules & Instructions for I SPY!
#1 - Have fun!
#2 - This round has a limit of 32 participants - this produces 32, 5" x 5" squares.
#3 - You will be assigned a participant number and a color after signing up! Sorry folks, you don't get to pick. This makes it more exciting and fun!
#4 - Select your fabric in the assigned color - it MUST be a 100% premium quilting cotton. The fabric should feature an image or theme recognizable to a child. If necessary, you should "fussy cut" so that the object is in the center of the fabric.
#5 - Send in or drop off your blocks to the Main Store by October 15th/2020. Please package them in a zip-loc bag and include your name, address, email address, and telephone number.

This swap is open to those outside of St. John's. You are responsible for mailing your 5 x 5 charms to the shop by the October 15th deadline. The cost for us to mail your newly assorted 5 x 5 charms to you is $6.00. The shipping option is available to you with registration.
