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 can get quite a few different plates, too, so if someone wants more than one from WI, just let me know :)

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!

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

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.

Couldn't have said it better myself, DJ!

I do have a bunch of envelopes preordered, so if you just send the amount to mail back to you, I can provide the vessel. :)

Hm.....I work near Milwaukee ;)

Never know who you'll run into in Milwaukee. I hadn't seen my old Legion commander in 15 yrs & there he sat in the plaza between meetings. A joy to see him & got to talk with his darling wife, too!!!

People have always said Milwaukee is a big(gish) city with a small town feel. I am always amazed.

For those of you who do not wish to participate, but want one from a specific area, please let me know. I get all over the state from Milwaukee all the way up to upper Michigan on a regular basis and can always snag one for you. :)

I'm in. I have several from Minnesota. Not so many duplicates from this year, as I stopped doing the double purchase; however, I have several from 2014, 2015, and 2016.
