Handmade Birthday Club 2014

I have several swaps and quilting bees wrapping up at the end of the year and I wanted to do something FUN and NEW next year.  I thought a Handmade Birthday Club would be perfect!

How it works:

You will be organized into a group of 12 fellow Handmade Birthday Club members.  Every month, as long as someone in the group has a birthday, group members will make and send a small to medium handmade item to the birhtday girl.  In total, you will be gifting 11 handmade items and during YOUR birthday month, you will be receiving 11 handmade items!  How FUN!

  • Mail out by the 15th of each month
  • Use modern, fresh colors and designs
  • Primary gift must be a finished handmade item. If you wish, you can include extras (stickers, magazine, birthday girl’s favorite candy) but extras are NOT required.
  • gift “size/value” is small to medium.  A mini-quilt, coaster set, soap, notecards,pouch etc. are all acceptable. It doesn’t have to be sewn.  Make what you like and use what you have!
  • Don’t forget to send a small note telling the birthday girl who you are
  • Share your items on Flickr and Instagram

    So, I’m sill fairly new to Instagram and Flickr and I just discovered this group from people I began following. Obviously too late to sign up this year…..unless you had some other latecomers to the group who have not had birthdays yet? I would really like to participate. Please let me know.
