We have made up “cinnamon sticks”, they are 2 fabrics and a piece of half square triangle exchange paper. When exchanging, do not remove the paper or open the triangles. Opening the triangles and seeing the fabrics will be a fun surprise for your block exchange friends. They will be available for you to purchases at the beginning of the month and you will then have a couple of weeks to return these half square triangles back to the shop. For every 28 you bring to us we will give you back 28 made from other people. Think of all the quilts that you can make with all the triangles you’ll receive. You can start picking up your triangle kits now and they are due back the 2nd Saturday of each month. We will mix up all the triangles and you will be able to pick up your new triangles the next weekend.
Cost: $4.00 per cinnamon stick.
