Brimfield Awakening Swap!


Hi friends!

We are so excited about this swap!  After hearing from many of you, we have decided to go ahead and start this new year with a fun swap.  We hope that you will have a chance to try a new block and make some new friends!

If you have not already, please sign up for the swap HERE.  Please read through this post before signing up!  Sign Ups close on Jan 10.   Partner emails will be sent out by Jan 14.

Here is some general swap information:

  1. This is a swap for all skills levels
  2. This is a blind swap (partners will be kept secret)
  3. This swap is strictly for those on Instagram.  We encourage you to open an IG account if you do not have one!  We are limiting this to Instagram only in order to manage this effectively.
  4. Responding to swap emails is mandatory and those who do not communicate with their moderator will not receive a project until it is confirmed they have sent one to a participant.  We will not tolerate anyone being left without a handmade item.
  5. Instagram Posts: You must post a minimum of four photos – two progress photos, one photo of your finished project, and one photo of the project you receive.  Each photo must tag your moderator and include the following hashtags:



Plus the hashtag of the block(s) that you are using
