    I wondered what will be the best/cheapest way to mail my fqs to my trade partners?

    it's pretty much the same to mail anywhere in the US using a manilla envelope...just under $3.00.

    oops thanks for the reminder guys ..better get cutting and ironing, and enveloping. small details lol... I can't wait to see the variety. When I go to say equilter its so hard pages of batiks.. they all say pick me pick me...rainbows. right now I am searching for sunshine colors ...I am supposed to be making a mud colored quilt (grin) but decided to rebel. what a shock I know.. and its going to be sunshine batiks. Now that will be a a happy quilt. I can do that

    I will have mine cut and ready to go this weekend. Can't wait to see what I get back.

    Do they need to be prewashed??? If so I will need to wash them after getting them ready.

    I don't wash mine ever. Whenever I add any fabric to a quilt, runner etc. I put in a color catcher always and have never had a problem. Just letting everyone know mine will not be washed.

    Mine are packed and ready for their trip to whereever. Batiks were a wonderful idea.

    I have always pre-washed fabrics when I put them in my stash. But since so many on here don't I do not pre-wash any of the ones I buy new so my swap partner will have some consistancy, but if I had it in my stash it most likely will be washed. I too send in a manilla envelope.

    I spent a bunch of time admiring batiks on ebay and there is a seller who has some pretty darned nice ones over 300 choices for 6.99 a yard FREE SHIPPING. The free shipping got me. Nice fabric, cheaper now than connecting threads and no shipping cost or ridiculous minimal buy to get free shipping. I accidentally bought a yard from him. I think we are closer to closing here aren't we??? two more days? long long days??? lol.. patience brat patience (hah likely I will have to read the definition in the dictionary but bet my name is not next to it).

    I went to Nancys Notions and did not find 1.99 batiks some pretty things but you have to buy large bundles of them which was not on the menu this week. I ordered one set from ebay of 12 and it was 24.00 so not running out to buy more right away I think. I did order from that man who sold for 6.99 a yrd and he has nice fabric. free shipping is so hard to beat. anyone else have good deals to share??

    I will have to check that email I got from from Nancy's. I did not order from there as I had already gone to ebay and got mine for 2.79 a half yard.
