    2.5 Candy Birthday Swap - Closed/Full

    2.5 Candy Birthday swap is now open for sign ups and will remain open until we get 30 people to join or February 16th.

    Hello and welcome to the 2.5" Candy Birthday Swap.
    this is how this swap will work:

    1 VERY IMPORTANT this is a year long commitment.
    2. PM me your name address and your birthday (month and day)
    3. Get your packages of 50 unique 2.5" candy squares ready to be mailed.
    4. Starting for March I will send everyone a list of who is celebrating a birthday that month so you can send out their "candy present".
    5. Birthday person please keep track of who you received your candy from please let me know if you have not received a package from someone.
    6. Sit back and wait for your birthday then go to your mailbox and enjoy little packages all month long!
    7. Please post when you have mailed your birthday package and of course wish them a Happy Birthday.
    I am going to limit this to the first 30 people and only address in the USA (for postage sake Sorry).

    The general swap rules apply: http://www.quiltingboard.com/member-...-a-t20154.html

    In addition the following rules apply:

    1. Please make sure to acknowledge everything you receive by posting to this thread. It would be faaaaaaaaaaaboulous if you also include photo(s).
    2. Any participant who fails to send all parcels expected in any given month will be immediately and permanently dropped from the mailing list.
    3. If that participant has already received parcels for her/his own birth month, that participant will also receive a Negative Feedback annotation.

    Any questions please feel free to post them in this thread...because someone else probably has the same ones!

    I think this is a really cute "sweet" idea!

    I didn't think that I could play along...worried that I might have 50 birthdays to do in a month! But I see that the limit will be 30 birthdays. So really, I could cut 29 sets whenever I got ready and mail during birthday month.

    Count me in for the bday candy.

    It looks like we would only need 29 sets for the whole year. That doesn't seem too tough. Sign me up. Jeeze. Another excuse to cut fabric candy!

    sounds like fun.
    Never look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.

    What does "candy" fabric mean? Does this mean fabric with candy on it or what?
    Do you send 50 squares to each person that has a birthday in that month?

    Candy fabric is just a term that we have adopted to represent 2.5" squares.
    so all you would have to do if you join is send each person on their birthday(during their month is fine) a package with 50 2.5" square with all different fabrics.
    then in return on YOUR birthday you will receive 29 packages in the mail!
    hope that helps and you will want to join us.
