    License Plate Swap - the fabric kind ;)

    This swap is for a fabric license plate, typically found at your local quilting store.

    A sample can be found here:

    https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...quilt-town-usa

    Please, please do not send me metal license plates 😉

    You may swap up to 10 license plates. They can all be the same or different, but please keep in mind, if there are less than 10 swappers signed up, you will receive some of your own back. If we get more than 10 swappers, you will receive up to 10 different ones for those projects you have in mind!

    Please include $6.65 for a Priority mailing, return shipping fee (This includes tracking). Post Office Money Orders, or carefully hidden cash are fine.

    The license plates do not need to be from 2017. As long as they are new and unused, they are acceptable, but please send new product only.

    Sign-ups need to be done by September 14th, with all license plates received by me by September 23rd. Distribution will take place no later than September 30th. If all plates are received prior to the 30th, distribution will take place earlier.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via email.
    Thanks!

    Do all fabric shops have them or just the ones that participate in the summer row thing?

    Only those doing Row by Row have the plates. It's a RxR thing.... but, some stores that aren't doing RxR this year may have plates left over from past years if they participated then.

    You can order them on line, too! I missed a closed shop when traveling through Idaho & sent off for a rare plate!

    I want to get in on this. So as I understand we will get back as many plates as we send in up to 10. So if I send 5 I will get 5 back, 10 I will get 10 back. And if only 7 sign up & I send 10-I will get 7 different plate and 3 of mine back .

    Count me in.

    Either here or email here. Whichever is easier for you.

    Several places have these plates. I wasn't aware it was row by row participants!

    We don't really know what others "need". It will be more of luck if you get something you need I think?

    Thoughts?

    I don't collect license plates and don't want to sew something from them-- but if someone wants one from Michigan, let me know. My local quilt shop carries them, and I can buy one without participating in the Row by Row activity. Maybe we can make a trade, a plate for some fabric scraps?

    I'd love to swap fabric for a plate from Michigan! What kind of fabric would you like & how much?

    dj, since many of us are from different areas I'm guessing it won't be too hard to 'guestimate' who might want what. after the main swap is done maybe we can always do single swaps between those that participate, providing of course it's ok with red and the QB rules. Luckily I'm in a LQS rich area and can get quite a few different plates to share.

    Sounds like a great idea, SuziSew, I'm in if it's okay with the powers that be. Trying hard to make a travel quilt.

    I've been to Minnie/St Paul, Duluth, & Stillwater, MN & to Milwaukee, WI on various busy American Legion Auxiliary National Conferences but the quilt shops were already closed by the time we finished meetings. I pouted all the way back to Oklahoma. Would really love a plate from any of those cities because the people were sweet, the food really great, & the topography fantastic! Just say'n!

    Can we send a
    $6.65 Flat rate priority stamp from the post office instead of money order?

    We are required to pay for the cost of a Flat Rate Priority bubble sleeve for the return shipment from the host. The cost is $7.20 (last pkg I sent) & should not have a date on it because the swap host may miss the date deadline. I've heard USPS has a new stamp for Priority bubble sleeves but have yet to see one.

    It is easier for me to pay the clerk for the stamps & attach them to the return bubble sleeve & put it in the pkg when I mail my charm pkg to the host because any weight is included in the price. Some swappers send stamps, hidden cash or a money order. Which ever fits your needs. Some hosts order the free bubble sleeves before the swap so some don't require you send the empty sleeve for the return charms.

    We can mail to the host however we think it will get there in time, but if you mail another way, be sure to track it.
    Note: Always put your charms in a ziplock bag with your name & address on the ziplock in case the bubble sleeve or other shipment form gets torn during shipment so USPS will know where to return it. Plus the host uses the ziplock to distribute your new charms & the charms are protected on their way back to you.
    Hope this helps.
    hugs,
