PATRIOTIC FANCY FABRIC SWAP
This swap is open to all members in good standing of the SRESafeHaven and Crazyquilt mailing lists, who are willing to follow the rules as specified. If you would like to join this swap, please email Tracey directly.
Baggies due to the hostess by:
Baggies back in the mail to you by:
The due date is NO LATER than July 26th, 2002. If not received by this date your baggies will be returned to sender in fairness to not hold up the other swap participants return squishys for late arrivals. I will swap all baggies and mail them by August 3rd, 2002.
You may send 3-10 baggies. The maximum amount of baggies may change depending on how many people sign up for this swap. If we get enough swappers to allow for more, I will notify all swappers. If you send more than the maximum permitted number of squishys, you will run the risk of getting your excess squishys returned to you unswapped. Please remember to clearly mark your name and email or snail addy on each of your baggies. A slip of paper listing the squishy contents for the benefit of the other swappers are also welcomed but not required. If sending small items like seed beads, please try to contain them securely in the squishy, a small plastic Ziploc® works well for this.
Postage for USA Swappers:
This is very important! You must send enough postage for me to mail your baggies back! This is a must. If you not sure send extra stamps. If I don't use them they will be returned to you. DO NOT TAPE YOUR STAMPS! The PO will NOT except them. Do not send a dated metered postage stamp for your return postage, the post office will not accept these after the day they are dated. Also, please include .40 cents for delivery confirmation. I cannot afford to replace items that are lost in the mail. You must send priority return postage in order to get delivery confirmation. If you don't send the correct amount for priority with delivery confirmation your baggies will be held until you send the money. Make sure you include a return envelope for your swap with your name and address written on it, my name and address marked in the senders area. The Post Office priority mail soft package envelopes are great for this use.
You may choose to send $8.00 in American moneys OR contact me directly for details of a squishy alternative.
Now for the good stuff!
FANCY FABRIC - Send enough Fabric to equal a 12x12 inch block. DO NOT send any Fabric that is smaller that a 6x6 inch piece! You would send in a total of 4-6x6 inch pieces of Fabric. If you want to send extra that is fine, but do not send any less. You may send only 2 (two) pieces of FANCY (metallic accented) cotton. The rest of the squishy to be made up of your choice of Velvet, Silk, Taffeta, Satin, Brocade, Silk Dupioni, etc... Please remember that this is a Fancy Patriotic Swap. Color and prints choices should reflect the American Patriotic colors, reds, blues, beige or white. Metallic gold or silver fabrics (example Lame's) permitted but try choose something unusual so we don't all wind up sending the same thing. lol
Include at least 3 of the following:
Just think American Patriotic and you'll be fine. DO NOT SEND ANYTHING YOU WOULD NOT WANT IN RETURN.
Please do not sign up for this swap if you don't feel like you can follow these guidelines. Failure to follow the guidelines set here may result in your package of squishys being returned to you unswapped.
Let the swapping begin and lets have some fun
