Red face Summer 2012 Postage Stamp Squares Swap-Sign up closes 9/15/2012

This swap is for 1.5" squares (postage stamps) in sets of 50 different 100% cotton fabrics. Please send what you would like to receive. Limit is 30 sets per swapper.

*Please send me a PM to sign up, and let me know how many sets you'd like to swap.

*Please use quality 100% cottons only! NO flannels. If in doubt of fiber content, please leave it out!

*All sets do not need to be identical. You can use what is in your stash!

*Please MAKE SURE to trim off selvages before cutting your squares. Also try to be accurate in your cutting of the squares, so they DO measure 1.5".

*Please double check that your sets have 50 (or more) squares in them! We don't want to short change anyone.

*It seems to work best to put the squares into small, snack size baggies. Be sure to label each baggie with your name, board name, etc.

Sign-ups close Sept. 15, 2012. Sets are due to me by Sept. 25th. I will swap them out, and get them in the mail no later than Oct. 10th.
** International folks, please mail 10 days earlier! To make sure I get them in time.**

Please include a SASE with adequate postage on it for me to send your return sets. An extra stamp or two wouldn't hurt. Our packages are "bulky" and get considered a "parcel"-per my Post Office. They charge more for that.
NO pre-paid printed labels!
Most folks have been sending in stamps or cash for a PADDED flat rate envelope ($5.30). It does make things a lot easier, and no worries about bulky packages.
If your sets cost more than what you sent in, I have no choice to hold them until I get the difference. In the last swap, I had several that were "over". It all adds up. Thanks for your understanding.

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

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

I am sooooo excited.. I didn't have a clue when I started thinking about making a postage stamp quilt how easy it would be.. Then came the SWAPS.. Whoa!!!!

I think I can handle making 30 sets.. buy Sept...Went to a garage sale yesterday, and ended up with 220 different pieces of fabric.. It's funny but I was trying to figure out what to do with them..

Thanks you people for enabling me..

Sheri- you can send in squares of any 100% cottons, as per first post. Does not have to be summer-y. I just put summer in, since it is summer right now! Happy cutting!

It's amazing.. I saw an ad on CL.. and it mentioned FABRIC FABRIC FABRIC.. I took the chance, and went across the island.. We very rarely get sales of fabric.. I can imagine that there are more quilters in MO... If you were really looking for yardage at this sale, it was lacking.. They had a huge bag of scraps.. It was $3 to fill up supermarket bags.. I filled two.. I had to cut around a bunch of fussy cuts, and clean up the mess..
I can't wait to share my fortune..
