    Welcome to the Friendship Apron Project!
    This is a special project that is much more than just a one-time swap. Rather, it’s an on-going Friendship Project where members will be able to join as often as they wish in order to trade small keepsakes, such as trinkets or homemade treasures, to be attached to their own apron much like the Global Aprons (as depicted in the photo below. ). The ultimate goal however, is to build friendships among the participants and we are hopeful the Apron Project will provide us an opportunity to do just that!

    The Project Details

    Welcome to the Friendship Apron Project!
    This is how the Project will work. For each round that you sign up, you will be paired with four other members. You will then send a small keepsake no larger than a standard business card that your trade partners can attach to their own apron. The items should be small enough and light enough to fit in a standard envelope.

    There will be a new round of the Friendship Apron Project approx every two months (except for Nov/ Dec), and you will be paired with new partners for each round in which you choose to participate. So your apron will eventually represent your cooking friendships from all over the world.

    The convenient thing is that you won’t have to wait for your apron to travel across the country or to circle around the world. The apron stays with you, and the keepsakes come to you which you will add to your own apron as they arrive.

    The Friendship Keepsakes
    We ask that your Friendship keepsake clearly identify you. If not already a part of the item itself, something as simple as writing your name and region on a tag or ribbon and attaching it to your keepsake would be appropriate. We want your cooking friends to remember YOU when they enjoy their Friendship Apron in years to come!

    What types of keepsakes are appropriate? The possibilities truly are endless. You can start by considering whatever you would do when signing a Global Apron. But instead, you’ll send keepsakes that your trading partners can attach to their own aprons. And you can either purchase or make the keepsakes. If you choose to create the items yourself, please don’t think they must be elaborate; simple and personal are always appreciated.

    But don’t feel like you have to commit to a craft project to participate in the Friendship Apron Project, because other keepsakes are certainly welcome, too. For instance, you might want to consider:
    • Embroidered souvenir patch of your country, state/province, or city
    • Embroidered appliques with a cooking theme or one of your special interests
    • Colorful plastic charms with a cooking theme or a special interest
    • Keychains or other small souvenirs from your region
    • Lapel pins and “booster” buttons from your region
    • Miniature cooking utensils or mini kitchen gadgets

    Most of these items should easily be found at most arts/crafts stores, fabric shops, gift boutiques, dollar stores, dollhouse stores, hobby shops, souvenir stands, and even some hardware stores. And, depending on what personal keepsake you plan to make yourself, you should be able to find the necessary raw materials at arts/crafts shops, fabric stores and hardware stores.

    Sign up: May 8-18
    Group Assignments Revealed: May 21th
    Shipping Deadline: June 8th
    All Envelopes Must Be Received By: June 27th

    Size Limits
    All keepsakes should be smaller than a business card.

    As all keepsakes for this project are small and should be lightweight, it is REQUIRED they be sent in an envelope via FIRST class mail.
    Nothing other than a personal note is to be included in the envelope. Although it might be tempting to send more items we request you not do so. The focus is on building friendships, not a box of random stuff. One keepsake only!

    All envelopes sent must be received by each member of the group to allow your participation in the next session of the project.
    All Envelopes Must Be Received By: June 27th

    You MUST post in this thread when.......
    We encourage you to check in often, but the minimum participation in this thread is to post when:
    ~You have contacted all 4 partners in your group.
    ~All 4 envelopes are shipped via First Class mail.

    *** At least one person in each group should post a photo of the groups items together.

    What About the Apron?
    Many of you already have an apron from past events. There are also opportunities to win an apron in coming contests and events such as the ZWT9 or the current Raiders of the Lost Pantry Cooking Contest.
    Aprons with the site logo may also be purchased at any point or simply use an apron on hand.
