STARTING THE 5” COTTON SQUARE SWAP FOR 2020 in FEBRUARY 
WE HAVE 10 SIGNED UP SO FAR, WOULD LIKE TO HAVE AT LEAST 5 MORE 
There will be a SIGN UP SHEET out at the January meeting. We will start the swap in February. Please sign up only if you will be able to participate every month. By the end of the year you will have a large stash of squares to make fun and colorful quilts. IF ABSENT: You may send your squares by someone else or give to Betty G. or MaryJo W. if you will be absent for a meeting. The squares need to be labeled with your name and which month’s swap it is for. 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MONTHLY 5” CHARM SQUARE EXCHANGE 
Each month the members participating will cut 5” cotton fabric squares to equal the number of members participating to swap with. ​(Example: 25 members signed up so you will cut 25 squares to bring) It will remain the same number for the year. A different theme is assigned for each month. Please cut accurately and use only 100% cotton fabric​. You will sign in at the squares swap table each month so we can keep track of participants. 
You will put your cut squares on the table in separate piles at the beginning of the meeting. 
You will pick up your pile of collected cut squares at the end of the meeting, in order to not disrupt our program or if someone is running late and needs time to lay out their squares. Thank you and ENJOY!
