Is there interest in doing an Altered Book Tip In Exchange this summer?
Would more people be able to join in if we made it a 6 for 6 exchange?
You send me 6 spreads that you do and you will receive 6 different

Summer email address:
One page front and back?
Inside spread facing pages?
(select your preference)

sizes for different people. Be sure to indicate if you prefer doing
the inside spread (the facing pages on folded 8 1/2 x 11) or one 5 1/2
x 8 1/2 front and back.
I will collect names for two weeks only - then will get back to you.
You will have June and July to make your pages.... Mail back to you
will be first week of August so you have time to prepare your book to
use with students. Please check your calendars before making a
commitment. I know emergencies do come up.
You are responsible for postage both ways. I prefer to mail to you

return and I make up the difference.
Note: I will not organize another Round Robin - but someone else is
welcome to do that. There has been some interest in Round Robins. For
a Round Robin, you select a book, do your sign in pages and a few
spreads, then mail it on to another member of the group. Books
continue moving on to group members to do spreads then it is mailed
back to you after making the round to all group members.
