I saw that the flat rate envelopes the post office gives you were 5.30. How are you guys getting 2yds of fabric for 2.70? If you guys can share that with me then I am all for the cheaper rate. I know here in WA we are paying $4.05 for gas so any little bit of money we all can save would be nice. I just don't use the post office much until now. Thanks for all the help my fellow quilters
I thought I signed up for this swap, but do not see my name on your list. Count me in.
What list...I don't see a list.
I hadn't posted a list I was just asking a couple people if they were gonna join us. Here is the list though. If you find yourself missing please drop me a line.
Okay, I finally had a chance to go through my stash. A few months ago, I got a "special" piece of fabric in a random remnant box that I just KNOW someone would "love" to receive! Ha ha! :D (Did Moda actually make this? Usually their fabric is pretty. This fabric ... not so much. But it says Moda all over the selvage! ;))
I'll PM my info shortly, and will get this "lovely" fabric washed and ready to mail either this evening or tomorrow. :)
We can ship first class, which is just one class below priority. In my experience, it really only takes ONE extra day to get to its destination versus using Priority.

Put 2 regular stamps on one envelope, then fold this envelope in half, and put it, along with your 1/3 yard ugly fabric, into the second envelope and mail to our host. This may cost just over $1- check with your post office. The price difference is due to the envelope inside. Keep the third envelope for a future use. I have a scale and also mail out little packages twice a week, so I know that 1/3 yard will be fine with just two stamps on a 6"x9" envelope.
Thanks! I will wash my ugly fabric tonight and send to our host soon.
I am all for anyone who wants to do this. It also saves me time also. I will try to reinforce the "seams" in the envelope with some tape too just so that it arrives to you all safely.

Mustard and white. I have over 2/3 yard. It's a vintage Peter Pan fabric.
This is rust and is a little bigger than a fat 1/3.
I would vote for the rust one.
Oh Foxflower, yes the rust one is slightly uglier than the mustard.
