Default April Postcard Swap. Come join us for the fun.

FABRIC POSTCARD SWAP

Wouldn’t it be fun and exciting to receive a personalized handmade postcard? Be creative, try out new skills, embellishments, have fun. It's a wonderful mini project. There are lots of online resources available with all sorts of ideas, inspiration and ‘how-to’s.’ We will have a general theme each month. Please mail your fabric postcards by the 20th of each month. (This is a hard deadline.) Sooner is better so I can add you to the ‘mailed’ list. Use cardstock or index cardscut to 4” x 6” or purchased blank postcards for the back and some kind of stifffusible interfacing, i.e., Timtex, Fast2Fuse, Wonder Under, etc. If you use batting to make your postcard, be prepared to pay additional postage. Any other size will cost more postage. International swappers are welcome!

Theme, April Showers Bring May Flowers or Easter. (No religious, to each his own.) Your choice.

Please PM me with thefollowing:
•QB screen name
•Real name
•Address/city/state/zip
•Are you willing to mail internationally?

This is not meant to be a Secret Pal kind of swap. Once I have everyone partnered up, I will post the QB names on the thread then will send along the above information by PM to the respective swappers.

Some required details:
•Postcards must be 4” x 6”
•They must have a finished edge, i.e., zig zag stitching, button hole stitching, satin stich, binding, etc.
•Your postcard needs to be at least either pieced or appliqued plus whatever you want to add to that. If you add a lot of embellishment, you may need to enclose your handmade postcard in a clear mailing envelope (available at the big box stores and online) in order for the USPS to handle it/mail it and so your postcard doesn’t get caught in their equipment.
•Your postcard must have adequate postage. Do not send something that will require the recipient to have to pay postage due. To be safe, please either check at your local post office or put 49 cents on your postcard for US. Check with your PO for international postage.
•Please PM me when you have mailed your postcard AND when you have received your postcard. Also, as a courtesy, please PM your sender to let them know you’ve received their postcard.
•Have fun and be creative.

Please, we want this swap to be fun. Just as a reminder, it is up to you to make sure your partner receives your postcard. Use an envelope if in doubt. Make sure your return address is on there. If you have not fulfilled you obligation you will not be allowed to join the swap the following month. If you do not fulfill your obligation, you will leave me no choice but to leave negative feedback.

I'm in. This is my first time swapping with this group, but I am a former Admin for Postcard Pizzazz, a Yahoo group of active swappers. I have a lovely collection of fabric postcards from around the world. I'm excited to make something for this group!
