    I was wondering though... and of course I don't know anything about hosting any of these things. But, what if you changed the Large to a 30 and keep the small a 15, and then if someone wanted a large... 30 or two smalls, they could be either or. If somone wanted 2 large, they could actually work with four 15's and of course the 15's could be just fifteen or you could switch them around to make them work?? Feel free to dismiss this if it isn't helpful or making sense... ROTFLOL> LOL> LOL> LOL

    I won't use a letter envelope, not taking that kind of chance with my fabric or someone's block.

    Just a thought, I use envelopes from Walmart, they are labeled Social Envelopes. They come white, in a box of 50 and they have adhesive so no bad taste on your tongue. They are very reasonably priced and they are perfect.

    I did the boom with a set of 39 .. First boom !what an experience. I so enjoyed , I will do it again. 4 months turn around is one third of a year, thinking about it everyday for one third of the year. My response to your suggestion of 4 groups of 15 or 2 groups of 30 at one time, maybe you, however I can not imagine having 3 or 4 spreadsheets at one time to work with.. and all the mail to be delivered into my mailbox, mailing out correctly, the postage fees, were about $48.00 and making all those blocks on time and it oh it would drive my postman to change routes. I am in for 15 this time. I am looking forward to it.

    I agree, they get ripped open all the time. I use the 5 by 7, this way I feel safe in sending them.

    Elisabrat, mine are stuffed and ready to address. Just a suggestion to everyone... label your envelope some way so it says Boom 8 and then then group you're assigned to. So many of us are in the FQ and F8 swaps and 2 of these that it will make it so much easier to be able to go right to the spreadsheet. PLease?????

    nygal, I used greeting card envelopes and the post office said I would have to pay it as a small package. I also found that different post offices charge differently for the same size envelope.
