    May Day!! 2.5” ‘CANDY’ swap!!! Oh Sew Sweet! ***Closes April 1, 2013***

    For those who love “Candy” in the Spring!

    We have fun calling it CANDY, but this swap is not the kind you eat. We trade 2.5" squares (another size of postage stamp) in sets of 50 different 100% cotton fabrics. Please send what you would like to receive. Limit is 15 cotton sets per swapper.

    More CANDY news! If you choose, the “DOUBLE TWIST” is back. You can choose a ‘CANDY Twist’ of BATIKS OR NEUTRALS! You can send up to 5 sets of 20 Batiks OR up to 5 sets of Neutrals. These will be 2.5” squares of 20 different BATIKS OR 20 different NEUTRALs. Again, please, send what you would like to receive. Twist limit is 5 sets of Batiks OR 5 sets of Neutrals OR BOTH or neither.

    PM me your information (Real name and address) to sign up, and let me know how many sets (and twists, if you choose) you would like to swap.

    For example:

    SheriR - 15 Cotton sets, 5 Batik twists and 5 Neutral twists
    Sheri R…
    1234 Quilter Road
    Quilting City, Texas 02213

    Sign-ups close April 1, 2013. Sets are due to me by April 15, 2013. I will swap them out, and get them back in the mail no later than May Day! May 1, 2013.

    Use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannels, NO polys, NO homespun, NO eyelets. If in doubt of fiber content, leave it out!

    All sets do not need to be identical. You can use what is in your stash! Each set does need to contain the right amount of DIFFERENT squares. (50 DIFFERENT cottons and/or 20 DIFFERENT Batiks and Neutrals) Please double check your counts…then count again. Remember, MORE is better than less.

    MAKE SURE to trim off selvages before cutting your squares. Also try to be accurate in your cutting of the squares, so they DO measure 2.5".

    Put each set of 50 (or 20 for BATIKS and NEUTRALs) squares in its own small, snack size baggies. LABEL each baggie with your board name and state you are from. For example, my baggies will say: SheriR – Texas

    Put all your sets in a larger baggie with your board name, real name and address. This way if your envelope gets damaged the PO can return the contents to you.

    Include for me an address label with your return information so I can easily stick it on your return envelope.

    Include $5.70 for return postage. Tracking Confirmation is free when I print the labels at the USPS.com site. I will not return your swaps until I have exact postage from you to cover the charges. I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS! You can send me A PO Money order, cash or stamps, concealed in your package which ever you prefer. (NOT metered postage as some of these expire before I can get the packages back to you.) ALSO…if you send stamps, send $6.00 worth, it costs more to mail this way. Printing from the USPS site saves money but I can’t use your stamps, I have to pay.

    Mail your swaps to me anyway you choose. If you use the PO flat rate envelopes I would reinforce the seams with tape so they’re more durable while being shipped.

    *PLEASE* I request you send TO me WITH a Confirmation/Tracking Number. This will alleviate any questions as to where your swap is.

    I will return your swapped “Candy” in a bubble padded USPS Flat Rate Envelope which I order from USPS for free.

    If your sets cost more than what you sent me, I have no choice to hold them until I get the difference. Thanks for your understanding.

    Sign-ups close April 1, 2013. Sets are due to me by April 15, 2013. I will swap them out, and get them back in the mail no later than May Day! May 1, 2013.

    ** If you’re shipping from outside the USA, please mail 10 days earlier (April 5) to make sure I get them in time. ** Send me a PM and we can make arrangements for payment of return postage if you will have a problem acquiring US$.

    Please feel free to mail your sets early, if you wish.

    General rules for swaps: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    If you have any questions, concerns, or other "candy" swappy ideas please send me a PM.

    Happy Candy Quilting ~ SheriR

    Hey, Sheri, I tried to PM you and it says you are full! Anyway, I'm of course in. I will do 15 regular and (I hope) 5 neutral.

    Please explain neutral. White on white? Beige prints? Only solids? Creams? Tell me what you want and you shall receive.

    I am packing on the lbs. with this sweet stuff every few months. My bin is never going to lose any weight at this rate!

    Of course I am in for the max! Love the squares and the company.

    PM box cleaned out. Sorry about that.

    Neutral = white on white, beige on beige, cream on cream any of these tones you would use with NO color.

    I was given a definition of "neutral" once as being the color of a brown paper bag. I extend that to any blender of the LIGHT/white area. Does that make sense to all?

    That explantion works for me! I have a 20% coupon from my LQS burning a hole in my wallet. I just my have to see what they have that could be construed as neutral...........or at least 2.5 inch square worthy. It is a coupon after all. I can let it spoil.
