The first ever Wild Olive Stitch Swap is underway, and we're getting ready to send out some embroidered happy mail!
• Finished embroidery should be in a 4" hoop, prepared for hanging.
• This swap is open to all, so you should be prepared to mail your embroidery internationally.
• You are welcome to include a little something extra, but it is not required. Please spend no more than a few dollars.
• All pieces should be mailed by March 31, 2012.

Q: What does "prepared for hanging" mean?
A: Think of how you might want a piece to ready to hang in your house. It might be in a plain hoop with the fabric edges gathered in the back, maybe the hoop is painted, perhaps even a backing. Just so long as the embroidery is "finished".
Q: Can I use cross-stitch, machine embroidery, applique or other embellishments?
A: This is hand embroidery swap, but you can add in other techniques in addition to your hand embroidery.
Q: Can I use transfers and patterns?
Q: Will my information be kept private?
A: Yes. The only person I will share your name/address with is the person who is mailing to you.
