    * I SPY SWAP* Join by May 12th, 2014

    I Spy Swap dead line to join is May 12, 2014

    If you would like to be part of the I Spy Charm Swap, here are the guidelines. Please read carefully:
    1.please pm me telling me that you want to enter the swap. In the pm please tell me how many sets you want to do,name and address along with board name. I will then send you a pm giving you my mailing address.


    2. We will be swapping sets of 20 charm squares, each 5 inch square. You may send more than one set of 20 charms, up to 6 sets. Each set that you send to me can be cut from the same fabric. You should be able to cut 20 five inch squares from around 1/2 yard of fabric depending on the design spacing. If you send more than one set, please use a different fabric for each set. I will divide up the charms randomly and return back to you 20 different charms per set. At least that is the goal, and I will try hard to do that! (If you send several sets, please realize that you might get duplicate charms in return.)


    3. Please send 100 percent cotton only. Squares should be carefully rotary cut . Keep in mind that your squares could end up in a child's quilt. Select fabrics that will hold up to a lot of love, wear, tears,dragging', cuddlin', washing, and trips through the dryer. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

    Please be advised that fabrics that are not square, squares too wonky or too off grain, squares that are shedding, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 5" square will be returned un swapped. Be accurate in cutting the 5 inch squares. The novelty design should be good size, not tiny...it needs to be easily recognizable from a distance.Try to have the character centered on the charm as much as possible.

    Children's licensed designs, Disney characters are welcomed. Be creative in your shopping...it would be great to not have too many sending me the same fabrics!

    4. Place each set of 20 charms in a zip lock sandwich size baggie. Include your name, address, and QB name on a piece of paper and put it inside baggies. please buy postage or concealed cash put in your envelopes.You just need to give me the correct postage. If postage is not included i will have to wait to send your charms back until you send the correct postage. Please include a mailing label for sending back to you. I will provide flat rate envelopes they cost $5.95 now. Postage went up.
    ****Outside the US needs to add more postage for it will cost more. I'm sure when you send it you will know what to send. Please send correct amount for I will not ship until correct amount is received.****


    5. The last day for me to receive the charms is May 17,2014 I will post when I receive your charms. If you are sending them from outside the US, please keep this in mind as it sometimes takes weeks for packages to arrive. I will divide up the charms on Sunday 18th, 2014 Anything received after that will be returned to you.

    Letís have tons of fun,and of course you have to follow all the basic rules, found here.

    I'm in again! I found some really cute material just for this swap!

    Next month, I'm going to bring over all the teenage girls from my son's high school class and we are going to spend a whole day putting together gifts like mini-I Spy quilts/books, beading kits, felt button snakes, anything we can think of for kids in foster care and the kids at the Children's Hospital. It will be a good day!

    Do the charms have to be just one fabric per set? I don't buy much yardage at one time. Could it be five different fabrics of four squares each to make a set of twenty squares?

    Yes it can be five different fabrics as long as you don't send over 20 of the same fabric charms. So yep it will work.
