    Another Woman's Treasure Swap v2.0! Sign up through Sept 30th!

    Another Woman's Treasure Swap!

    We all have that pile of fabric that we're not going to do anything with. Like they say, one woman's trash is another woman's treasure!! Why not send it on to someone else, and freshen your stash? This is our second swap, and let the fun begin!

    This is a fabric swap for medium flat rate boxes (MFRB) chock full of goodies! Fabric should be 100% cotton used for quilting. If you have books, buttons, thread, notions, or other goodies, those are fair game too, but the bulk of the box should be fabric. Remember, these are things you're ready to part with and get something awesome in return! Yardage, scraps, charms, jelly rolls, FQ, F8, etc!

    Medium flat rate boxes ship for about $12, and you can fit a LOT of fabric in them. And remember, as long as you can shut it, it ships! Stuff that baby full!

    Swap rules:

    Any number is welcome. If we only get a few takers, we'll still do the swap!

    You will receive one medium flat rate box for every one MFRB you send out. Partners will be chosen randomly by yours truly. You will be sending your box to the same person who will be receiving yours. Please stuff your box FULL! We want only happy swappers!

    There are two different types of medium flat rate boxes- a smaller one that opens at the top, and a larger one that opens at one end. You can use whichever MFRB you can find, but know that if you send the larger one, you may receive a smaller one. (The size difference is neglible, really.)

    As always, please only send out the same quality you would want to receive.

    Please take a picture of the contents of the box you send out in case your partner cannot post pictures. And please post pictures of your box so we can all lust over the new additions to your stash!

    This swap has been approved by PatriceJ.

    Please notify frenchfryqueen as soon as possible if you feel you cannot complete your obligation. Please don’t sign up if you don’t think you can send out a medium flat rate box in the time allotted. If problems arise, COMMUNICATION IS KEY!! Unfortunately, anyone who did not fulfill their obligations in any of my previous swaps is not eligible to play.

    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here at the Quilting Board: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm ****

    Participants should send frenchfryqueen a PM to provide tracking info and verify their box has been sent.

    Participants are required to ensure packages will not arrive “postage due.”

    Any and all other fees, such as import duties, taxes, etc imposed by the recipient’s government are the sole responsibility of the recipient.

    Absent legitimate and reported mitigating circumstances, participants who have not fulfilled their obligation to ship by October 31st shall be deemed “late” and risk receiving Negative [Swap] Feedback.

    Please keep in touch with frenchfryqueen as required. Please let her know right away if something happens that will interfere with your ability to complete your project on time.

    You are participating at your own risk-- please do not publicly complain about the quality of your received box. If you have a legitimate complaint, please PM me. Communication is key!

    Please PM FRENCHFRYQUEEN with the following information by September 30th. She will then match up names and get them returned to you by October 5th. You will have until October 31st to mail your box. You must provide tracking information to me with a note that your box has been sent.

    Board Name:
    Real Name:
    Address:
    Email:
    Phone #: (this will NOT be given to your partner, this is for my use only in the event that a problem should arise)
    Do you have any allergies:
    Do you have any allergens (cats, dogs, smoker):
    Can you ship internationally?
    Do you have the ability to post pictures?

    Any preferences (colors, themes, etc) can be discussed on the board or with your partner, but remember not everyone has the means to fulfill all requests.

    Everyone jump in!!

    Also, some of you have mentioned doing themed holiday boxes.. we'll try and find the perfect partner for you. Post about it in the public thread, and the first swapper to PM me will have dibs on it.

    You can do multiple boxes as well.. just let me know in your signup PM if you'd like to do more than one.

    Enjoy!

    Would it be possible to match me up with somebody who'd like to swap scraps? My scrap bins (plural ) are literally overflowing. I like making scrappy quilts, though, so perhaps there's somebody out there like me who'd like some "new" scraps to play with. I can use anything
    2-1/2" square and up, as well as 1" or wider strips ... and can send the same in return.
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Would anyone be interested in trading home decor fabrics (think totes)? The only fabrics I have that I might be interested in passing along are ones for totes and linings. Mostly upholstery/ tapestry type fabrics. A few are ones I use for linings.

    I'm in for swap # 2. Really enjoyed the first one. Anyone out there internationally want to play? I'd be interested in swapping with someone from another country. Maybe we can swap things that represent our homes - I live in Vermont, USA and would be able to send some "Vermonty" fabric.

    Hummmm ... Let me see if I can swing this again.... as I had a great trade with my partner last time. I know that I could put in a bag of close to 100 men's ties in it if someone was interested (they are a kinds of fabrics, cotton, silk, wool). Just thought I'd put that out there... 'cause you just never know. I'm pretty sure that I'm gong to able to play, just want to double check a couple of things first. Well it's been a LONG day& I have a headache.... so I'm off & running.

    If we don't get someone who can swap a whole box with you, I can help you a bit. I'm down to a single Walmart bag though, so I'd have to fill it with other things. I could even put in some I don't have enough for a project of that I've been holding anyway. Just let me know!

    I can be matched with Moonrise as I have an overabundance of scraps, both squares of various sizes and strips. Of course, getting equal in return doesn't solve my problem, does it?

    Either one of you will be great! I just wanted to run it by the hostess and everyone before officially signing up, because I'd feel bad if someone sent me yardage and I sent them scraps. LOL!

    Ms. FrenchFry, is this okay to do? If so, I'll send my PM to sign up ASAP.

    Absolutely! I have no problems with it. I'll make a note to match moonrise with paulswalia. Moonrise- if none of your info has changed, you don't have to resend it, as I still have it from the last swap. But please still send me a PM saying you'd like to play to make it "official".

    I have those items. Maybe we'll get to swap with each other. I love novelty prints, and like spring flowers and the orangey/peachy colors. If you don't have these, it's ok. Marcia

    I have started filling my send out box. About 2yds red bandana print. Another 1-2 yards of a print I know I will never use. As I go through stash or work on a project I will continue adding to it.

    I wouldn't say my stash is huge either, but the man would not agree, lol. Dusty asks me every time I open the closet if I think i have enough fabric. You all know the answer to that! He did ask me the other night though if the man knew just how much fabric I have. Honestly, I don't know. The space I allotted for my stash is full though, and I've got nowhere left to expand to! This is why I joined the fabric moratorium, even though we're all just a bunch of enablers over there. It's slowed me down anyway and makes me think twice about buying just because I like it.

    Hahaha so true! Although I do buy each fabric (well 90% )with a quilt or project in mind. Problem is can I get to all those project to before I see another? Lol.

    This sounds like a LOT of fun! I'm sending my PM in. Scraps are just fine for me, also. I can even accomodate needs for specific colors or square sizes (from 1.5" to 6" - there are bags of each around this place!)
    May your blessings be many, your troubles few and your fabric stash endless!
