Welcome at the new blog for the international siggy list to collect Dear Jane D13 blocks. Originally Annelies was the care keeper of that list. Later on Marga then her daugther Suzanne and then again Marga took over the administration.
At the request of Marga I take on the management of that siggy list from now on. Here you will soon find:
- the latest news
- image galleries
- a tutorial to make a siggy
- and much more
There are about 90 ladies amongst you who already exchanged a siggy with me. I hope we will all keep swapping siggies for a long time.

Yesterday, after a lot of pasting, cutting, sorting, emailing, adding and updating the new version of the siggy list was finally ready for distribution. Meanwhile, if all went well, you received an email about it.
The MailChimp system that I use to send mass mails, doesn’t allow for classical attachments. I uploaded the new list to MailChimp. You can download the list from the link in the email you received.
Good morning Wouter,
It is nice that you will manage the siggy list. I am a member since 2010. Yes, I already exchanged a siggy with you. Yours is incorporated in a pillow for which I chose 16 siggies with mainly blue tints. I have another one with colored blocks. Both are lying on my couch. Furthermore a very beautiful quilt with 365 siggies serves as a blanket on our bed. I asked Marga to publish a picture of it but that never happened. Thought it could be an interesting example for others.
Currently I am not actively swapping siggies. I reached my goal! But if someone asks for an exchange I still do that because it is fun.
Now I am busy making cushions in the shape of a heart for women with breast cancer. The corners of those cushions are bigger and fit very well into an armpit to reduce the pressure on the wound. If you are interested you can see it in a blog.
I hope you will keep the list up to date for a long time. I think it is a lot of work. Isn’t it? I wish you success and I’ll see the new list appear when it is published.
