    5" Charm Color Theme Swap - Green

    October5” Charm Swap – Color Theme (Green). Sign up ends Wednesday, October 11th. Swaps need to be in my hands by October 21st, with final distribution by October 28th.

    ***The Color Theme for this Summer Swap is Green***

    1. Color theme of Orange means a Minimum of 80% of the print has to be some shade of Green. Yes, they can have other colors within that 5” square as well, but the predominant color must be a minimum of 80% Green.

    2. You may swap up to 10 bags with 15 different 5" square charms in each bag. Please fussy cut if your fabric print requires it. Send the kind you hope to receive. Only send 100% quilting cotton squares!

    Do Not Send: thin fabrics, homespuns, dotted swiss, denim, flannel, polyester or polyester blends, eyelet, wool, linen, fleece, knit, broadcloth, seersucker, Etc. Only send 100% quilting cotton, please.

    3. Take your time cutting and be sure you have correctly cut 5” squares. No one wants wonky squares

    Cutting/Packaging Method:
    We will be sending 15 Different fabrics in each bag we swap. All your bags can have the same mixture in them, or different, but you cannot repeat fabrics in any one bag. We will be swapping bag for bag, so there must be 15 different fabrics in each bag. Please put your board name & location on every bag you are swapping. For instance, "Redstilettos, West Bend, WI".

    4. Put all your swap bags in one big ziplock then affix a tag on it that includes your name and mailing address, as well as your board name. That will keep them together in your package and if it happens to get torn open in shipment - your address will be there for the P.O. to return to you. Tyvek envelopes or padded flat rate envelopes are the best shipping method. You can order the padded flat rate envelops from the post office online, in packages of 10, and they are free.

    5. Postage: It costs $7.20 to ship the padded flat rate envelop. Please include a USPS Money Order for $7.20 in your big ziplock to pay to return ship to you. Very well hidden cash or stamps are okay as well. I cannot ship back to you until I receive payment. No personal or company checks, please. Also, Please put your board name on the outside of your package. This will help me stay organized knowing who I may be receiving from or waiting for. Please be sure to send enough postage.

    6. PM (Private Message) me to sign up and indicate how many bags you intend to swap and include your real name and address to ship back to you. I will respond to you with my mailing address for you to mail all of your swaps to me for distribution to all swappers. Positive feedback for earlybirds will be awarded.

    7. If I receive All swaps early, distribution back to swappers be early, too!
    Let’s aim to be early! If I do not receive early, distribution will be by October 28th.

    I’m looking forward to having you


    If you have questions, please PM me

    10 bags on the way in the morning. Gotta tell on myself...I know that we're swapping 10 bags of 15 charms. Started cutting and had 10 bags of 10 charms each and thought, "I'll be generous this month and put in extras." So, I added 2 more charms to each bag. Thought it didn't take as long this month...Wait! I wasn't being generous, I was about to short everyone!! End of the story, there are 10 bags with the proper number of charms in them going to the PO in the morning...I'm not quite a senior yet, but I think I'm practicing for the future

    Red listed the upcoming colors in the orange swaps post. Should have red, yellow, Brown, Gray and neutrals coming in the future....correct me if I missed something. I found some good reds and yellows recently at a great price, so went ahead and got them knowing I'd need them soon...
