    This sounds like fun, I'm interested, but have some questions. How many sets of 50 squares do we end up sending out? I'm assuming it's a total of 35? Do we just mail them in a baggie and then in an envelope? How much leeway do we get to set up for the next month? I guess I will get my questions answered as we go along. Do the 50 squares need to coordinate. Or can they be any type of cotton fabric (like mixing 30's with batiks, etc)? I'm sending my PM now.

    Hi Happylab..thanks for joining us.
    Sign up continues for a few more weeks but we will stop taking people when we hit 35. That means you will send out 34 (ourself is 35) and you will receive 34 in return on or around your birthday. It sounds like a lot to send out but it is over a year. Our first month that we will send out is March and we have 3(so far) people with birthday in March. Start getting your stacks of 50 different squares ready(100% cotton)...do not have to coordinate..ready for mailing. When I give you the addresses on the 20th of each month that will give you enough time to get them packaged and mailed out in time for their birthday.
    Hope that answers your questions.

    This is a fun swap for sure! To give you an idea of how they can be packaged and shipped, Here's a sample of what I've received so far. I found if you can get it flat it costs less to ship (under a dollar).

    Swap is almost full.... We have 27 so far and can take up to 35.

    So far we have every month is represented with at least one birthday.

    Sign up will close on February 19th and I will get addresses out for March on the February 20th. Which will give you plenty of time to get your birthday goodies postal !!!!!!!

    I'm cutting scraps like crazy here, it takes longer thank using yardage, but my goal for this year is to tame the scraps and this swap is helping me by giving me the motivation to keep pressing and cutting. I have 12 packets ready and a few charms in each of the rest.
    I want to get them all done while the weather is bad, as soon as the spring comes I will be out in my yard playing in the dirt!!
    Have a great day everyone,
    cindy
