    August Postcard Swap, Come join the fun!

    FABRIC POSTCARD SWAP

    Come join us in trading Fabric Postcards. Be creative, inventive, try out new skills, embellishments, have fun. It's a wonderful mini project. There are lots of online resources available with all sorts of ideas, inspiration and tutorials . We will have a general theme each month. Please mail your fabric postcards by the 20th of each month. (This is a hard deadline!)

    *NOTE* New Rule* you must post on the thread a minimum of 3 times. Once at the beginning (say hello greet your partner), once in the middle (how are you coming along) and once at the end (on the 20th confirmation of having mailed). And as always, I need to hear and so does your partner when you receive. This is not a new rule just a reminder.

    Theme, Our Feathered Friends, that's right ladies/gents, anything birds.

    Please PM me with thefollowing:
    •QB screen name
    •Real name
    •Address/city/state/zip
    •Are you willing to mail internationally?

    This is not meant to be a Secret Pal kind of swap. Once I have everyone partnered up, I will post the QB names on the thread then will send along the above information by PM to the respective swappers.

    Some required details:
    •Postcards must be 4” x 6”
    •They must have a finished edge.
    •Your postcard needs to be at least either pieced or appliqued plus whatever you want to add to that.
    *If you add a lot of embellishment, you may need to enclose your handmade postcard in a clear mailing envelope (available at the big box stores and online) in order for the USPS to handle it/mail it and so your postcard doesn’t get caught in their equipment.
    •Your postcard must have adequate postage. Do not send something that will require the recipient to have to pay postage due.
    •Please let me and your postcard recipient know that you have RECEIVED your postcard.
    •Most of all, have fun!

    Please, we want this swap to be fun. Just as a reminder, it is up to you to make sure your partner receives your postcard. Use an envelope if in doubt. Make sure your return address is on there. If you have not fulfilled you obligation you will not be allowed to join the swap the following month. If you do not fulfill your obligation, you will leave me no choice but to leave negative feedback.

    Nice job Pam, that came out excellent. I think I need to try that out with a photo of my grandchildren. For me of course.

    Dee and Nana20010 I have you on the list.
