Two for Teal Mug Rug Swap 2014 

Designed by Beth Helfter, EvaPaige Quilt Designs, "Two for Teal" mug rug swap is an annual event intended to raise awareness of ovarian cancer, funds for Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, and give quilters and sewers a fun little swap. I welcome Cherrywood Fabrics as my official sponsor this year, providing both a portion of the focus fabric to be used in the mug rugs and a coupon for all participants!

The cost to participate is $15, of which $10 per participant will be donated directly to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund during the first week of September. The remaining funds will be used to offset administrative, shipping, and fabric costs. Every participant will receive a coupon code for $10 off their next order from Cherrywood Fabrics online store.

Event timeline:

  • August 15 - 29 - Registration open
  • August 29 - September 2 - Behind the scenes envelope stuffing and mailing of packets to partipants
  • September 2 - September 30 - Celebrate Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month by creating a mug rug for your swap partner and mail it by the October 2 deadline.

For more information, check out and join our "Two for Teal Mug Rug Swap 2014" facebook page, where we'll be able to post photos of our mug rugs as we receive them, and the informational blog post "Two for Teal Almost Here!"


The fine print: Unfortunately, there are two small caveats to participation.

  1. Because of the astronomical cost of shipping anything larger than a cake crumb outside of the US borders, I have to limit this swap to those with a US postal address only. I am sorry. I love all people everywhere and wish I were made of money so that I could afford to have this be international!
  2. Registering means you are committing to making a mug rug for a swap partner within the month of September and mailing it to them by October 2. Please check your calendars and make sure that this is possible for you before signing up. We don't want disappointed swap partners!

Hit that cute little button down there to register! I'm excited to have you aboard!
