Pick one page design and make 16 copies with the template and instructions that will be provided. There are 20 page options to choose from that range in level of sewing difficulty from beginner to advanced. Sewing is required, but you can get help from friends or family or check out this option to have your pages sewn for you!
The group will begin when it is full, and we will try to swap in early December (depending on when it fills). You can participate from anywhere in the United States by mailing your pages.
- Organization Fee
- Template and Instructions
- Cover Tutorial
- Assembly supplies (grommets and binder rings)
The cost for shipping the swapped pages back to you will be added at checkout. This rate is based on distance. If you are local to Bakersfield, CA select free local pick up.
I also offer pre-cut pieces and sewing pages together at the end (for an additional charge) to make it even easier on you!
I will notify you via email when we are ready to begin!
*Certain pages may contain small parts so it is not recommended for children under 3 years of age. All children should be supervised by adults while they are playing with the book.
My kids go absolutely nuts when our swap pages arrive. These were all so well done by the group members and provide hours of screen free play time for my kids! I love it!
I’ve always wanted to do one of these swaps. I decided to just do it one day and it was definitely worth it. Plenty of time to finish and the page I chose wasn’t very difficult! Kailan also helped along the way with great advice and she was always available if I needed help. Having a deadline was great for me (procrastinator). I will definitely do this again!
With some basic sewing skills and Kailan's guidance, you can make a quiet book for a whole lot cheaper and easier than buying a full one! Just make multiples of one page (this is great so you don't have to buy a lot of supplies!) and receive a book in return!
These books are an incredible way to engage kids off screen. The instructions were clear and easy. Kailan is great with answering any questions and finding supplies. This was my second swap and I am already signed up for my third! Can’t wait!!!
My son is busy, busy, busy! He loves getting into everything. On top of that, he likes to have someone - usually Mommy, right along with him!
I decided to participate in one of Quiet Book Queen’s swaps. I, at the time, had never sewed before. Kailan set me up with a beginner sewer page and assisted me along throughout the process. She answered my questions, accommodated, and encouraged me! I enjoyed seeing the progress of the other swap members in the Facebook group. I couldn’t wait to receive our pages and I was not disappointed when I did! We received good quality, fun pages that my son couldn’t wait to play with!
When my son has his Quiet Book, that busy boy that likes to get into everything slows down, sits still, and quietly explores and manipulates each page. His favorite page is the one I made where he has to match the popsicle stick to the corresponding color! I haven’t pulled out the Quiet Book while out and about but have used it sporadically at home when I need a break to get things done!
I highly recommend participating in a swap with Quiet Book Queen. Not only do I support her product, I support her mission of limiting screen time and increasing playtime!
