TO SIGN UP FOR THE APRIL 2014 SWAP, CLICK HERE!


The FAT QUARTERS FRIENDS SWAP allows participants to add their own personalization if they choose by decorating the outside of the package, using decorative wrapping for the fabric itself, including a personalized note/card, including any small gifts that their FAT QUARTER FRIEND would be totally excited to receive.  

You don't have to include any extras but some ideas are maybe:
  • A Matching Spool of Thread
  • A Cute Sewing Notion
  • Sewing Pattern you no longer want/need
  • Yummy candy
  • Anything else you would like your new friend to have!

THE DETAILS / MEAT N POTATOES / INS & OUTS OF THE SWAPS

* The Fat Quarter Friends Swaps will be open to Canada & USA Only.

* This will be a monthly swap but you only sign up for the months you want to participate.

* There are no fees other than buying Fat Quarters, extra goodies & shipping costs.

* The link for the online Sign-Up Sheet is above and you have until March 31st to register.  There are 3 slots on the online form asking for favorite colors, favorite designers and favorite collections which will help you pick out Fat Quarters that your FAT QUARTER FRIEND will love!  

* I will then pair everyone up by April 2nd then send out emails to let everyone know who their FAT QUARTER FRIEND is.

* Please make sure that you ship your package by April 10th, which gives you about a week to go shopping from your local/online quilt/fabric shoppe.

* Send 4 different Fat Quarters that are unwashed &  are quilt quality.  You can send Fat Quarters from your own stash as long as they are in like new condition and are full sized & not trimmed off.  Or buy new Fat Quarters.

* If for some reason you are not able to participate after signing up, PLEASE let me know by March 31st so that I can rearrange pairs.

* I will ask that all participants email me in April when they receive the package from their FAT QUARTER FRIEND so that I can keep track of who has/hasn't received theirs.

* For those participants that have blogs, I think it will be awesome to show in a blog post what our FAT QUARTER FRIEND has sent us!

*For that that are swapping for the 1st time, I will add your email address to our special E-list so that I can notify you right away when I announce the next month's swap.
