  1. Lorraine I`d love to participate I guess the girls always win in our house so I choose girl themed ,back to school <3 ya Sheila Foery

    1. Great Sheila, so pleased you are joining in :-)

  2. I'd like to give this a try. Do you have to make an entire wardrobe and accessories?


    1. Hi Penny, no you don't have to make an entire wardrobe. Some people will, some won't, some will buy the clothing to swap and others will sew or knit it themselves. The fun is in the giving and seeing what sort of school kit you can make up. Just think back to when children you know started a new school year and what they needed. ;-) Hope this helps.

  3. Yes please!!! love doing the swaps, and 'chatting' with swap partners! Thanks for organising this. I hope you are feeling better now!

  4. My swap was sent out yesterday Lorraine to Caryn .
    Hugs Sheila
