    They are squishies packages of fabric that come in the mail some times what you order some times a surprize from a quilting angel.

    Welcome from Texas. Squishy's are packages of fabric in a soft mailer, so they kinda "squish" when you squeeze them. Like Charmin'. LOL Sometimes they are fabric you order for yourself, and sometimes a surprise from another quilting buddy, or "angel".

    Here's hoping you have lots of squishy's in your future!

    I stated once that I was missing something and got PMs (Private Messages) and squishies in the mail. I was stunned and asked if I could pay postage, etc. I was told "No, just give to someone else who needs something." That's how the angels work on this board.

    To send a Private Message, just click on that at the top of the page. Type in the name of the person you want to write to, and it will automatically go to them.

    Also, I think you can click on the person's name, and then click on Private Message?

    Lol

    I have stated that i m missinga lot but no angel yet,

    Particulary i am missing most rulers to use, everything from 4.0 and up.

    the only one i have is the one i got from Rhonda; well i do have a big one but its in cm and therefor not much help for me.

    also i got little fabric but i m just starting out so i guess it will grow.
    No this is NOT ment to be wining or complaing so please take it the right way.

    i really like this angel thing so i might try 2 be one myself :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    i like giving as much or if not more than receiving, ofcourse i m always greatful for what i get but i do love to suprise someone :wink:

    the idea is to pass it forward and not tell anyone! That is what I choose to do!

    Passing it on is the fun part!

    You can also send a PM by clicking on someone's name right here in a thread. You don't have to do a search.
    After you click on the name, you get a page with info about the person, and at the bottom right, there's a box to check if you want to 'send' a PM.

    Hi! I have just joined and have been reading through the forums. Squishies are something I would love to get!! its just nice to get things in the mail besides BILLS! LOL But the reason I am replying is because I have SOOOOOO many totes of fabric that my mom and I will never be able to use up(especially since we buy new stuff from time to time). When my grandma passed years ago we got all her stuff also, this includes unfinished projects and raw material. I would love to make someones day by sending some of these fun packages out to them. So i have read how to pm someone but how do I know who is in need or who might just want some fabric?? or who I could just send some to just because I felt like it. and also what sizes? fq, 1/2 yard, color? matching or scraps? I need more info and most importantly people to send to.
    Hope to have some info soon. Thanx everyone! :lol:

    Squishies are the best! and you can get a lot in a very small package. Well for me you can . My angel sends me scraps, and since I love looking through them and seeing all the different materials. And passing it on is such fun! I get to pass some of the kindness on next week!!!

    Star. If you don't find a home for your fabric, I can suggest a good source. Some older ladies in our town are making humanatarian quilts for Africa. They have scrounged fabric from everywhere. They have also taken girls tee shirts and cut them off a little and added a fabric shirt and have made over 100 dresses. When they showed the movie of the kids and how excited they were we all cried. They have a lady who takes them over every three months. I am so sure they would be delighted to get fabric and would be willing to pay for postage. I have gave them bunches of mine. It is such a devoted group of ladies and they love every minute of it.
    I am getting a new grandbaby anyday. The mom is 46 and is overdue 10 days so we are worried. When this all slows down, I have some fun things I want to send as schrunchies.
    If you are interested in sharing your fabrics let me know.
    I love this site and have met so many wonderful people and learned so much. I am looking forward to getting to know you better. I am Verna (Mumzbear) from Utah. Please let me know about yourself.
    Have a super day.
