    Fall 2016 2.5" Charm Swap, signup ends Oct 14th

    Fall 2016 2.5” Charm Swap, signup ends October 14th
    Swaps need to be in my hands by October 28th


    If I receive ALL swaps early, distribution back to swappers in late October.
    Let’s aim to be early! If not, distribution will be the first week of November.

    Let’s have tons of fun, and of course we must all follow all the basic QB swap rules, found here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm


    You may swap up to 10 bags with 50 different 2.5" charms in each bag. Please fussy cut if your fabric print requires it. Send the kind you hope to receive. Only send 100% quilting cotton squares! If you participated in the summer swap please send different fabric. Everyone enjoys new charms!

    Do Not Send: thin fabrics, homespuns, dotted swiss, denim, flannel, polyester or polyester blends, eyelet, wool, linen, fleece, knit, broadcloth, seersucker, etc. Only send 100% quilting cotton, please.

    Take your time cutting and be sure you have correctly cut 2.5” squares.

    CUTTING/PACKAGING METHOD:
    We will be sending 50 DIFFERENT fabrics in each bag we swap. All your bags can have the same mixture in them, or different, but you cannot repeat fabrics in any one bag. We will be swapping bag for bag, so there must be 50 different fabrics in each bag. Please put your board name and state on every bag you are swapping. For instance, "djmat Broken Arrow, OK"


    Put all your swap baggies in one big ziplock with a tag that includes your name and mailing address, as well as your board name. That will keep them together in your package and if it happens to get torn open in shipment - your address will be there for the P.O. to return to you. Tyvek envelopes or padded flat rate envelops are the best shipping method. You can order the padded flat rate envelops from the post office online, in packages of 10, and they are free.

    Postage: It costs $6.80 to ship the padded flat rate envelop. Please include a USPS Money Order for $6.80 in your big ziplock to pay to return ship to you. Very well hidden cash or stamps are okay. I cannot ship back to you until I receive payment. No personal or company checks, please.

    PM me to sign up and indicate how many bags you intend to swap and include your real name and address to ship back to you. I will respond to you with my mailing address for you to mail all of your swaps to me for distribution to all swappers. Positive feedback for earlybirds will be awarded.


    If you have questions, please PM me. Thanks!

    I'm in for 10 bags of 50. Looks like the instructions were copied from last time. I think it is 50 this time.

    Guess I'll wait a bit and see the numbers for sure. I'll need to get them done this week before we leave for the winter.

    Is it 30 or 50? I'm not sure I could find 50 fabrics that I didn't use in the summer (or the bday swap). Maybe...

    Thought I'd put this notice on this page as well. Hope leadership helps me make the changes to reflect 50 per set. Still new to hosting!

    Loved the summer swap and really want to join this. Problem is, I can't even imagine mailing early -- just to much quilting to do. I will be on time, but I plan according to the posted deadlines. Can you accept an ontime-er instead of a speed demon?

    Annie, you slay me, with that hilarious posting!!! Mail in time for me to receive it by the posted deadline or sooner IF you can. The fall is a busy time for most people. BTW, love your pretty avatar!
    hugs,
    dj (speed demon or ontime-er depending on other obligations)

    I will try again DJ, love your swap, just have a bunch of packing and sorting to do before we leave next week. Never realized how much it involves to leave a house for 1/2 of the year. I'm welcoming myself to the "snowbird" group. I know it will get easier....I just know it will!! I'll let you know soon...

    Jaba, closing & opening two houses twice a year is actually moving, but you will stay warmer & healthier during cold weather, so fly sweet snowbird!

    Juanita, Welcome to the swap, so glad you joined!!! I have you down for 10 bags of 50 different charms per bag!!!!

    hugs,
    dj
