    Hi all. I am new to the forum and a relatively new-ish quilter. I googled "quilted postcard" and I am totally interested!
    I apologize for being a bit naive, but I don't understand how it actually gets mailed. I imagine you just fabric pen the address on the back? does the stamp actually stick to the fabric and does it only take one stamp?
    When would this have to mailed by, wondering if I may be too late to the game to get something organized.
    Thanks for your patience with my questions! I look forward to engaging with various board activities!

    This is only my third time to participate, but I've sent and received mine in envelope, some regular some clear plastic. I added a bit of extra postage just to be safe (letter rate vs postcard rates). I think you'll enjoy this swap and don't think it's too late to get something made. You just have to commit to it by the 1st of October. Then try to get it in the mail by the 15th or so. The board description at the top if the first page has some more information.


    Fellow swappers, correct me if I'm wrong in anything I said here.

    Hi LAF2019, I live in Western Australia . It is best to send post cards in an envelope over seas . It takes at least 14 days therefore I like to get mine in the mail as soon as I get a name then the receiver gets hers much the same time as the locals . Welcome and enjoy

    Thanks for the info! I think I have to sit out this month (sending my machine in for a tune up so not sure I'll be able to participate in a timely manner), but I am looking forward to the next one and will follow along with everyone here! Happy Quilting!

    I just saw this post and am very interested. I realize it is past the sign in date but thought if you have an odd number and need one more... maybe.

    No worries if I am too late. I'll look for the sign in next month : )

    On one mystic, magic night,*
    Jack O Lanterns glowing bright,*
    kids with bags of candy sweet,
    roam door to door and street to street,
    all dressed up for trick or treat!

    Wizards with wands, pirates with hooks,
    monsters and clowns with spooky looks,
    Kings and queens with capes and crowns,
    a princess in her royal gown,*

    Witches with warts and fairies with wings
    movies stars with sparkling rings,*
    Vampires with fangs that bite,*
    ghost that boo all dressed in white.

    Imaginations taken flight,
    on that one mystic, magic night.
    Oh, the fun of Halloween,*
    be young or old or in between!

    How is everyone doing? Are any of you where the weather has started changing? It has not changed here in Florida. Hot and humid! Does anyone want to share a favorite Halloween memory?
