Another Woman's Treasure Swap!
This is our third swap! What better way to shake off the post-Christmas dreariness than with a box chock full of new-to-you fabric?
We all have that pile of fabric that we're not going to do anything with. Like they say, one woman's trash is another woman's treasure!! Why not send it on to someone else, and freshen your stash?
This is a fabric swap for medium flat rate boxes (MFRB) chock full of goodies! Fabric should be 100% cotton used for quilting. If you have books, buttons, thread, notions, or other goodies, those are fair game too, but the bulk of the box should be fabric. Remember, these are things you're ready to part with and get something awesome in return! Yardage, scraps, charms, jelly rolls, FQ, F8, etc!
Medium flat rate boxes ship for about $12, and you can fit a LOT of fabric in them. And remember, as long as you can shut it, it ships! Stuff that baby full!
Any number is welcome. If we only get a few takers, we'll still do the swap!
You will receive one medium flat rate box for every one MFRB you send out. Partners will be chosen randomly by yours truly. You will be sending your box to the same person who will be receiving yours. Please stuff your box FULL! We want only happy swappers!
There are two different types of medium flat rate boxes- a smaller one that opens at the top, and a larger one that opens at one end. You can use whichever MFRB you can find, but know that if you send the larger one, you may receive a smaller one. (The size difference is neglible, really.)
As always, please only send out the same quality you would want to receive.
Please take a picture of the contents of the box you send out in case your partner cannot post pictures. And please post pictures of your box so we can all lust over the new additions to your stash!
