    MORE 2.5” ‘CANDY’ swap!!! Oh Sew Sweet! ***Closes January 15, 2013***

    Here we go again!

    This swap is for 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.

    WAIT there’s more! If you choose, I’ve added a swap “DOUBLE TWIST”. You can choose a ‘CANDY Twist’ of BATIKS OR WINTER HOLIDAY! You can choose to send up to 5 sets of 20 Batiks OR up to 5 sets of 20 Winter HolidayFabrics. It will be 2.5” squares of 20 different BATIKS OR 20 different WINTER HOLIDAY. Again, please, send what you would like to receive. Twist limit is 5 sets of Batiks OR 5 sets of Winter Holiday 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 Winter Holiday twists
    Sheri R…
    1234 Quilter Road
    Quilting City, Texas 02213

    Use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannels, NO polys, NO homespuns, 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 Winter Holiday) Please double check your counts…then count again. Remember, MORE is better than less.

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

    Put each set of 50 (or 20 for Batiks and Winter Holiday) 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 of 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 $6.00 for return postage. I will be adding Tracking Confirmation on your return envelope so I can track its return trip to you. 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-which ever you prefer, concealed in your package. (NOT metered postage as some of these expire before I can get the packages back to you.)

    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 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.


    ** If you’re shipping from outside the USA, please mail 10 days earlier (Jan. 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 or concerns, please send me a PM

    Because many people use precuts, washing is not required. Therefore they can be washed or unwashed.

    I'm trying to get all the rules straight in my head.....in the title you say it "CLOSES on JANUARY 15, 2013" and I can't find a shipping date....so is January 15th the closing date for signing up or the date you must have them?
