    Birthday swap 2017/2018....... Sign Up

    2017/2018 birthday swap...candy style 2.5"

    2.5 Candy Birthday swap is now open for sign ups and will remain open until we get 35 people to join or February 19th.

    Hello and welcome to the 2.5" Candy Birthday Swap. Candy squares are 2.5" 100% cotton squares that you would be happy to put in your own quilt.

    This is how this swap will work:




    1. VERY IMPORTANT this is a year long commitment.

    2. PM me your name address, EMAIL, phone number and your birthday (month and day) Also see below for an additional question.

    NEWBIES (
    new to this swap) YOU MUST get a recommendation from a past hostess or from ANYONE that was in a previous birthday swap. Absolutely NO FLAKERS here!!!

    3. Get your packages of 50 unique 2.5" candy squares ready to be mailed.

    4. Starting for March (on feb 20) I will send everyone a list of who is celebrating a birthday that month so you can send out their "candy present". I will send out the list on the 20th of each month.

    5. Birthday person please keep track of who you received your candy from, please let me know if you have not received a package from someone. Please post a THANK YOU to EVERYONE that has sent you a package on our thread. Pictures are a nice touch.

    6. I will have contests again this year but they will be randomly through out the year. Feel free to play as often as you want the only rule is: You must be a swapper in good standing to win. Which means EVERY package that has been sent by you has been received on time. I keep track when every package is received....this is why it is very important for the Birthday receiver to post received packages in a timely manner.

    7. Birthday receipt, please give positive feedback to everyone who you receive from on time. Your package must be on time to get positive feedback. Anyone over 10 days late will get NEGATIVE feedback.

    8. Sit back and wait for your birthday then go to your mailbox and enjoy little packages all month long!

    9. Please post on the thread when you have mailed your birthday package and of course wish them a Happy Birthday.

    I am going to limit this to the first 35 people and only addresses in the USA (for postage sake Sorry).

    The general swap rules apply: RULES FOR SWAPS AND SIMILAR ACTIVITIES - Updated 8 December 2010


    Any questions please feel free to post them in this thread...because someone else probably has the same ones!
    This is our fifth year for this swap .....the first, second and third year went well and many friends were made. Fourth year there everyones packages were on time...I expect that to happen again this year!!!!

    Looking forward to another year of fun, friends and of course cute little candy squares!!!

    I'm in again this year Barb. Will send PM tomorrow. I have been slicing and dicing all afternoon, finished 30 swaps and in bags waiting to get more cards. I see that it is now 35 birthdays. So that means that I have to cut for 5 more!

    I am going to do this for another year. I enjoyed sending the candies, just as much as I did receiving them..
    Will pm Barb.
    Can't wait to get started!
    Never put off what you can do today, because tomorrow may never come.

    I'm going to sit this year out of the b'day candy swap. It was a lot of fun but I'm on a quest to use up what I have.

    I enjoyed participating in this year's swap but I also am going to abstain from participating in next year's swap. My 2017 resolution is to use my scraps and not acquire more

    Just signed up again! Oh, I have so many 2.5s but can you ever have enough? It has been such fun this past year. Ready to cut, fill envelopes and send them out to old and new friends.

    I want to start cutting mine this weekend. Do we know for sure we need to have 35 cut and ready? Or won't we know the total amount until after 1/31?

    Thank you for your good thoughts. I am doing well. The year was a challenge. I have the required aches and pains but nothing that is keeping me from work or from quilting. I created a new UFO over Christmas Break, twin size Irish Chain and put binding on my guild's mystery quilt. It is nice to use my hands again. Going to have a quick carpel tunnel surgery in March but they promised I will only be off the sewing machine for about a week or two at the most. I hope this will allow me to feel the needle when I hand sew. It is really mystifying to pinch those fingers together and find the needle on my lap!

    Will be cutting my 2.5 sweet treats this week-end. All one color way, so get ready for....... (shhhh it is a surprise.)

    I figure joining in this swap is a way to use up some of what I have, rather than the other way around. :-) Since the moment I sent my pm, I've been sifting through ideas of what quilt top, or two, I'll be making come my birthday month. I'm looking forward to getting to know some more people on the board through this thread.

    A couple of you are from MI? :-) I used to live in Wyoming (a town near Grand Rapids), and often passed through GR on the way to visit my folks in Holland (another town in MI. lol This comment makes it seem we don't have very original names for our towns...), stopping on 28th Street a lot.
