My true sewing passion is embroidery! :-) I hope many of you will enjoy playing along. If there are enough participants, I will make this a monthly swap series so we can collect Monday-Sunday.

This month, we will all embroider a MONDAY towel. We will:

  • Have 1 partner.

  • Hand embroider on a flour sack style dish towel. Here are some examples of the type of dish towel to use:

Flour Sack Towels on Amazon
Flour Sack Towels from Aunt Martha's
Flour Sack Towels on Dharma Trading Company
These towels are also usually available at Hobby Lobby, Joann's, Michael's, and similar craft stores.

Here are many examples of embroidered Days of the Week towels.

  • Choose any commercial "Days of the Week" embroidery pattern. The pattern selected is sender's choice.

  • Please imprint the MONDAY pattern on your towel and fully embroider it. The embroidery must be done by hand, not by machine.

  • Wash your towel after you embroider it! There should not be hoop marks left on the towel when you mail it. You may wish to run a quick iron over it; though these towels hold on to some wrinkles, it shouldn't be excessively wrinkled. Please make an effort to ensure that your towel arrives in ready-to-use condition.

  • Do your best work! However, this swap is open to embroidery beginners. Please be prepared to receive an embroidered towel with full effort but perhaps developing skill. :-)

  • Send on time. Rate promptly. Please contact the recipient and the swap host in the rare circumstance that you must be late.

  • Be sure to enclose a note of a couple of sentences to personalize the swap and give important details (swap name, user name, etc.).

  • This swap is open to all Nuts for Sewing & Crafting members in good standing with no unresolved 1s or 3s (please PM the host if there's an extenuating circumstance) and a minimum of 10 rated Type 3 swaps.

I love this idea! and hope that the swaps will include all the days of the week. Just one quick question, can we use just one (1) color, like the Red-work or Blue-work? You know like Blue Monday.

That's a good question. I had thought about doing a separate red work (etc.) series and will be happy to do it of there's interest. I think it'd be most fun if this one was done in multi-colors. Sound good to everyone?
