    2.5" Mini-Charm Swap Deadline to Jan. 6, 2014

    Please cut your mini-charms before joining.

    Sign up deadline is Jan. 6, 2014
    Squares need to be in my hands by Jan. 13, 2014
    I will start swapping on Jan. 14, 2014

    If you would like to be part of the 2.5" Mini-Charm Swap, here are the guidelines. Please read carefully:

    1. Please pm me telling me that you want to enter the swap. In the pm please tell me how many sets you want to do, name and address along with board name. I will then send you a pm giving you my mailing address.


    2. We will be swapping sets of 40 2.5" mini-charms. You may send up to 20 sets. Each set that you send to me needs be cut from 40 different fabrics . If you send multiple sets, each package can be the same, just no duplicates within the sets. I will be trading these set for set. I will try to not send duplicate sets. Please be aware that sometimes that is impossible.

    3. Please send 100 percent cotton only. Prewash or not prewash is acceptable. Any print is acceptable. Please DO NOT send solids. Squares should be carefully rotary cut from 100% cotton fabric. Fabrics that fray easily, or are fairly easy to see through are not good candidates for this swap.

    ***Please be advised that fabrics that are not square, squares too wonky or too off grain, squares that are shedding, squares that contain selvages, or those that are not 2.5" square will be returned un-swapped. Be accurate in cutting.***

    4. Place each set of 40 mini-charms in a zip lock snack size baggie. INCLUDE your name, address, and QB name on a piece of paper and put it inside baggies. Please buy postage OR concealed cash put in your envelopes. You just need to give me the correct postage. If postage is not included I will have to wait to send your charms back until you send the correct postage. I will provide flat rate envelopes they cost $5.95 now.

    ****Outside the US needs to add more postage for it will cost more. I'm sure when you send it you will know what to send. Please send correct amount for I will not ship until correct amount is received.****

    5. The last day for me to receive the charms is Jan. 13, 2014. I will post when I receive your charms. If you are sending them from outside the US, please keep this in mind that it sometimes takes weeks for packages to arrive. I will swap the baggies during the week and send out by Jan. 20, 2014. Anything received after that will be returned to you.


    Remember to send in what you would like to receive back.

    Letís have tons of fun, and of course you have to follow all the basic rules, found here.

    Please note that the number of sets you may swap has been changed. You may swap up to 20 sets not 10, if you would like.

    Also, please make sure that you put your name, address and QB name on a piece of paper and put inside each set that you swap. This is to help me to try not send your own charms back to you.

    You only have to send money OR postage, not both. Some people would rather send the money, while others would rather send either postage or their own envelope with postage attached. Either way is fine with me.

    Now, lets have some fun!!!!

    Charlotte, are these to be different fabrics from the last swap? I'm assuming yes.

    Even though we don't have 10 people signed up yet, here's the list:

    1. benndm - 20 sets
    2. hairquilt - 10 sets
    3. sewmany - 10 sets
    4. mrshalibut - 20 sets
    5. charlotte37830 - 20 sets

    There's still time to join. If you join and there's not at least 21 signed up, everybody can decide if they want duplicates or if they want their charms back. I don't mind getting duplicates myself, but I know some people need all of theirs to be different. It's up to everybody what you want to do. If more people want to join, but time is an issue, pm me. Maybe we can extend the deadline since it is such a busy time.

    UPDATE: Since we don't have very many people signed up, I am extending the deadline for the swap. I'm thinking that maybe the holidays have made it a little hard for everyone to get ready so quickly.

    The new dates are as follows: Sign up deadline - Jan. 13, 2014; In my hands by Jan. 20, 2014 and Mailed back by Jan. 27, 2014.

    I'm hoping the extension will give everybody a chance to recoup from the holidays and get to join the swap. I hope you can join us. I hope you had a wonderful time with your grandsons.

    Wow - didn't even see this swap until today when I went 5 pages into the 'what's new' section of the QB.

    Maybe with a little more activity you'll get more swappers....so keep talking it up!

    As for me joining in the fun...I'll have to see how quickly I can get them cut and bagged!

    We're getting there! I'm all for holding off the deadline until there are enough of us to trade. I just cut 20 sets, but I don't want double sets back as I'm doing a charm quilt.

    Mailing my little "treasures" this morning!
    Can't wait to see what I get back.
    I'm going to use them in a scrappy quilt I'm working on.
