Fat Quarter Friends Swap for May - Are you In?

The first round of the Fat Quarter Friends Swap that took place for April was a success!  We had 14 participants.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for more signups for the May swap.



BELOW ARE A FEW OF THE RECEIVED PACKS.  AREN'T THEY CUTE!  I'M STILL WAITING ON THE REST OF THE PICTURES.








TO SIGN UP FOR THE MAY 2013 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.  Canadians will be paired up and Americans will be paired up.

* 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 April 30th 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 May 2nd then send out emails to let everyone know who their FAT QUARTER FRIEND is.

* Please make sure that you ship your package by May 10th, which gives you about a week to go shopping from your local 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 April 30th so that I can rearrange pairs.

* I will ask that all participants email me in May 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!


IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS AT ALL, PLEASE LEAVE THEM BELOW!  NOW, LET'S SWAP!  DON'T FORGET TO GRAB MY BUTTON ON MY RIGHT SIDE BAR.

PLEASE SHARE ON YOUR BLOGS OR WITH ANY FAMILY/FRIENDS THAT LOVE FABRIC!
