I am opening this up for 56 swappers, myself included. We'll each receive a lovely charm bundle of Alison Glass blender prints back. I am fine with you signing up for more than one spot, but you will need to send a different fabric for each spot.

One spot = 1 print, 1 yard, 56 charms

Shipping deadline is November 15th – I know this is a way out, but this way folks have a chance at ordering the two Sun Prints lines that are due out in October (Corsage) and November (Bike Path).

To sign up, please leave a comment with your name, number of spots, and which fabric/color you will be sending in. I’ll be keeping a list of which lines/colors have already been chosen, so please check it before ordering your fabric so we can avoid duplicates as much as possible. I will close signups when we reach 56.

List of fabric lines and colors:
Bike Path: grass, teal, prussian, fuchsia, peony, white, grey dot, lilac, black, peacock, brown, salmon, dahlia, sun, fluorescent, grey, chartreuse, spice (Note that Bike Path includes the colors from the original release + the new release. If I’ve missed any, please say so.)
Corsage: hot pink, pumpkin, gold, chartreuse, teal, fuchsia, lilac, white, cream
Party Streamer: hot pink, scarlet, olive, gold, teal, prussian, dahlia, eggplant, black
Text: hot pink, pumpkin, fluorescent, teal, indigo, eggplant, charcoal, black, white
Feathers: black, grey, lilac, indigo, teal, chartreuse, fluorescent, flame, magenta
+ and X: pumpkin, indigo, chartreuse, bright salmon, grey green, dusty pink, pinkish brown, light grey, charcoal

Before mailing, your fabric needs to be cut into 5” squares. The selvedge edge should NOT be included in the 5” squares (and please include them in your package to me if you are just planning on tossing them). You can easily get 56 - 5” squares from one yard of fabric with a bit left over for your scrap bin. If you aren’t sure how to cut your squares to make the most of your fabric, I highly recommend Elizabeth Hartman’s tutorial:
www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/2010/05/charm-squares-101....

I've been asked if I have any requests for sorting of the charms prior to mailing them to me, so here goes: If you take more than one spot (which a lot of us have) please sort your charms into stacks of all one color/fabric. So, for example, I signed up for text in black and bike path in peacock, so I would have one stack of all text in black and one stack of all bike path in peacock.

Mailing:

Place your charms in a ziplock-type baggie prior to mailing. I'm in upstate NY, which can be pretty wet this time of year, so this will ensure that your fabric will arrive safely even if your mailing envelope should get wet. (My mailman is pretty good, so this shouldn't be a problem, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.) Please either write your real name & flickr name on the baggie or enclose a note with this info so I can keep the packages straight.

For return shipping, please enclose a self-addressed return mailer with the same amount of postage it took to send your package to me so I can get your charms back to you without delay. If you are sending priority mail, I will be happy to pick up a new mailer for you at the post office so long as you enclose appropriate postage and an addressed mailing label.

International Swappers are welcome, but please plan on mailing early to allow for the extra time it will take your package to get here. Please send me a flickrmail to work out the return postage.

Exciting news ladies! Alison Glass contacted me to say that she would be willing to set up a custom listing on her store for the 9 lucky penny bike path fabrics which are getting hard to find. Isn't that sweet of her?

If you are interested, please send her an email to set up the listing. I'm hesitant to post her email on an open forum where spammers can get a hold of it, so please see her website here for the address.

In other news, there is now an Alison Glass Fabrics & Projects group on flickr, so be sure to go check it out. www.flickr.com/groups/2319308@N20/

FYI - Pink Castle Fabrics is having a 30% off everything sale with code FALL30 and they still have several of the Alison Glass prints in stock. So bummed that I ordered mine already but I thought someone else might want to take advantage.

Hello - just wondering if you are using any prints from Alison's older line or only the new ones? Lucky Penny?
admin
Menolly13 5 years ago
FairlyMerry:

This swap is just for the lines listed in the first post, so just the new lines plus the bike path colors from the lucky penny release. The idea is to get a bunch of pretty blenders and I believe her other fabrics are all multi-colored. If she has other blenders that I've missed, I'd be happy to add them.

Would you overlook at my colors I chose Clementine in text but show someone chose pumpkin in text and did not want to duplicate since your list is a little different from the list in the picture. I also chose rogue which I think is flame in the picture if you show I need another then I will take green text which may be fluorescent in the picture showing all colors thanks

cwsmaemae:

Which ever you want to do is fine, just let me know and I'll adjust your color picks accordingly. I'm finding that the color names vary depending on what online store you are looking at so sometimes it is hard to be sure which is which. I don't think there are quite enough colors to do no duplicates, so it's ok if we get a couple.

I've got you down for a spot, but if you haven't ordered yet, do you want to pick a different color? Grass has already been picked in the text print. For the text, indigo and eggplant are the only colors still unclaimed. We're going to end up with 2-3 color repeats to get 56 charms, so if you have already ordered, it isn't a big deal.

Can I take 2 spots, I would like to pick my fabrics pretty late in the game. I live in Greece but will be coming to the States on November 10th and I just found a shop in Denver and she says she has all of the Sun Prints, so I will just try to pick up what no one else has gotten by that time, does this sound okay?

Updated to here. New swappers, please check the list at the top to see what colors are still available before making your color choices.

Please be aware that certain shops are making up their own color names, so if the shop you order from uses a name other than the ones listed in the first post, please compare the color to the color chart here to get the correct name. This will help us avoid any more duplicate colors. Thanks! :)

Just a question. If we do not get 56 members will we be sending the number of members squares? Otherwise we would just get more of our own back. If we just sent the exact number we could have a larger piece of our own left. Just a thought.

Corsage doesn't come in mauve, at least not in the official color names. :) Does the mauve correspond to the fuchsia or the lilac? I'm guessing lilac, but don't want to put you down for the wrong one. It would be so nice if vendors would use the correct names.

I've been asked if I have any requests for sorting of the charms prior to mailing them to me, so here goes: If you take more than one spot (which a lot of us have) please sort your charms into stacks of all one color/fabric. So, for example, I signed up for text in black and bike path in peacock, so I would have one stack of all text in black and one stack of all bike path in peacock.

I've added this to the top too for easy reference. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. :)
