Spring 2013 PS squares- 1.5"- Swap- Sign ups close April 15, 2013
This swap is for 1.5" squares (postage stamps) in sets of 50 different 100% cotton fabrics. Please send what you would like to receive. Limit is 20 sets per swapper.
*Please send me a PM to sign up, and let me know how many sets you'd like to swap.
*Please use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannel, NO homespun, NO blends. If in doubt of fiber content, please leave it out!
*All sets do not need to be identical. You can use any 100% cottons in your stash!
*Please 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 1.5". Rotary cutting these does help with accuracy. :)
*Please double check that your sets have 50 (or more) squares in them! We don't want to short change anyone.
Also check that there are 50 DIFFERENT fabrics.
*It seems to work best to put the squares into small, snack size baggies. Be sure to label each baggie with your name, board name, etc.
Sign-ups close April 15, 2013. Sets are due to me by April 30th. I will swap them out, and get them in the mail no later than May 8th.
** International folks, please mail 10 days earlier! To make sure I get them in time.**
Most folks have been sending in stamps, m.o. or cash for a PADDED flat rate envelope ($5.95). It does make things a lot easier, and no worries about bulky packages. Delivery Confirmation is included. I can supply these envelopes, they are free from usps.com.
NO pre-paid printed postage! They are dated, and my P.O. does not accept it!
If you choose to send a different envelope, please, please make sure there is plenty of postage $ for it. An extra stamp, or such wouldn't hurt. These packages are "bulky" and get considered a "parcel", per my Post Office. They charge more for that.
If your sets cost more than what you sent in, I have no choice to hold them until I get the difference. In the last swap, I had several that were "over". It all adds up. Thanks for your understanding.
Please feel free to mail your sets early, if you wish.
