    5" Color Theme Charm Swap - Reds

    November 5” Charm Swap – Color Theme (Red). Sign up ends Thursday, November 9th. Swaps need to be in my hands by November 21st, with final distribution by November 28th.

    ***The Color Theme for this month’s Swap is Red***

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

    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!

    3. This is not to be considered a holiday themed swap. There are many on the board who would prefer for the holiday fabric to be eliminated or kept to a very minimum. If you are in doubt, please ask before sending.

    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.

    4. 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".

    5. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. Please place your board name on the outside of the package! I don't open these until I am ready to distribute, and having your board name on the outside allows me to keep track of any I may be missing, or allow me to give feedback to you when your package has arrived.

    8. 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 November 28th.



    I’m looking forward to having you!


    If you have questions, please PM me,
    Thank you!

    Thanks for the clarification in the "rules" about non-holiday. Makes it way easier! I will most likely participate in all the colors...but am putting my house on the market, so it could get kind of crazy around here soon! (hopefully). House we want to buy has a huge room above the garage and I have already staked my claim!!

    Giant fail for me: 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.

    Mine went out in the padded envelope. So sorry.
