    MORE 2.5” ‘CANDY’ swap!!! Oh Sew Sweet! ***Closes January 15, 2013***

    Here we go again!

    This swap is for 2.5" squares (another size of postage stamp) in sets of 50 different 100% cotton fabrics. Please send what you would like to receive. Limit is 15 cotton sets per swapper.

    WAIT there’s more! If you choose, I’ve added a swap “DOUBLE TWIST”. You can choose a ‘CANDY Twist’ of BATIKS OR WINTER HOLIDAY! You can choose to send up to 5 sets of 20 Batiks OR up to 5 sets of 20 Winter HolidayFabrics. It will be 2.5” squares of 20 different BATIKS OR 20 different WINTER HOLIDAY. Again, please, send what you would like to receive. Twist limit is 5 sets of Batiks OR 5 sets of Winter Holiday OR BOTH or neither.

    PM me your information (Real name and address) to sign up, and let me know how many sets (and twists, if you choose) you would like to swap.

    For example:
    SheriR - 15 Cotton sets, 5 Batik twists and 5 Winter Holiday twists
    Sheri R…
    1234 Quilter Road
    Quilting City, Texas 02213

    Use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannels, NO polys, NO homespuns, NO eyelets. If in doubt of fiber content, leave it out!

    All sets do not need to be identical. You can use what is in your stash! Each set does need to contain the right amount of DIFFERENT squares. (50 DIFFERENT cottons and/or 20 DIFFERENT Batiks and Winter Holiday) Please double check your counts…then count again. Remember, MORE is better than less.

    MAKE SURE to trim off selvages before cutting your squares and be accurate in your cutting of the squares, so they DO measure 2.5".

    Put each set of 50 (or 20 for Batiks and Winter Holiday) squares in its own small, snack size baggies. LABEL EACH baggie with your board name and state you are from. For example, my baggies will say: SheriR – Texas

    Put all of your sets in a larger baggie with your board name, real name and address. This way if your envelope gets damaged the PO can return the contents to you.

    Include for me an address label with your return information so I can easily stick it on your return envelope.

    Include $6.00 for return postage. I will be adding Tracking Confirmation on your return envelope so I can track its return trip to you. I will not return your swaps until I have exact postage from you to cover the charges. I WILL NOT ACCEPT PERSONAL CHECKS! You can send me a PO Money order, cash or stamps-which ever you prefer, concealed in your package. (NOT metered postage as some of these expire before I can get the packages back to you.)

    Mail your swaps to me anyway you choose. If you use the PO flat rate envelopes I would reinforce the seams with tape so they’re more durable while being shipped.

    *PLEASE* I request you send TO me WITH a Confirmation Number. This will alleviate any questions as to where your swap is.

    I will return your swapped “Candy” in a bubble padded USPS Flat Rate Envelope which I order from USPS for free.

    If your sets cost more than what you sent me, I have no choice to hold them until I get the difference. Thanks for your understanding.


    ** If you’re shipping from outside the USA, please mail 10 days earlier (Jan. 5) to make sure I get them in time. ** Send me a PM and we can make arrangements for payment of return postage if you will have a problem acquiring US$.

    Please feel free to mail your sets early, if you wish.

    General rules for swaps: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    If you have any questions or concerns, please send me a PM

    Because many people use precuts, washing is not required. Therefore they can be washed or unwashed.

    I'm trying to get all the rules straight in my head.....in the title you say it "CLOSES on JANUARY 15, 2013" and I can't find a shipping date....so is January 15th the closing date for signing up or the date you must have them?

    Count me in! I love cutting tiny scraps of candy! I want all the good stuff 15 cotton candy 5 Batik candies and 5 Christmas candy!

    I am going to be planning my candy for a really cute quilt pattern I received from a Great Aunt whom I did not even know she was a quilter. She was my grandfathers Sister on my Dad's side (my grandfather died when my Father was only 5, the family on that line has been lost for a while, thank goodness for genealogy on the internet) My cousin recently found out I love to quilt and sent me her patterns and some cool notions! This is so awesome since I now have someone in my family who I inherited my love of quilting from, distant but still cool to me!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    That's cool that you have connected with long lost family. I too have reconnected with lost family. We did a private page on facebook for family members only and it's way too much fun!
    Can't wait to see what you make with all that yummy candy.

    I hope all y'all had a great Thanksgiving and fun Friday! Only online black friday shopping for me. I stayed home and enjoyed DD's babies and rested from two days of cooking. I had so much fun. Eight years ago I spent Thanksgiving in Alaska with DD and her new baby - WOW was that eight years ago?- anyway... Hubby bought a full Thanksgiving meal from the local grocery store and they all decided it was gross and un-edible. It scarred them for life and they comment about it every year now. Everyone was home this year and it was lovely! Dinner was on time!!! Then hubby took DD to Cabalas at 3:30 AM for their Black Friday sale... I told him he was such a good daddy but when i saw the time I said they were Crazy!!! LoL Today they are hunting. I wish them luck! I get to play with the kids more today and maybe sew. I'm actually making something with my 2.5" candy!!!! YIPEE!!!

    I want to do this swap, but I have a lot of 'stuff' going on right now. I'm going to try cutting when I can. If I get enough done I'll join officially. I'll pop in every once and a while to check on everyone.
