Keep on reading if you're interested in participating in swaps for the retreat. You make take part whether or not you signed up during registration. If you want to do the Secret Sewist Swap you must fill out the Google Form by Feb 20th (do it before QuiltCon if you are going).
We will be having two different swaps this year at MOD. You can take part in one, both, none at all, but I can assure you that they are both going to be amazing! Last year, we swapped tote bags using Essex Linen from Robert Kaufman with great success! It was like Christmas morning when everyone received their bags.
The two swaps are:
Modern Mini Quilt Swap
There are no official signups for this swap - just bring it to the retreat and you'll come home with one! The exchange is random so you are not making the mini for anyone specific.
Here is a mosaic with some ideas from Flickr:
