What the bobbin? (ajkattner) 8:31pm, 18 April 2014
This is a Christmas Fabric swap. Each participant will post a picture of their Christmas fabric to the group pool.

Each spot you sign up for is worth one yard of fabric

Your one yard needs to be cut into 28 - 5"x10" bricks (rectangles). There is very little excess so, please cut carefully. Also, be sure to cut your selvage off completely. If you are concerned about being short, order extra fabric.

Please, place all bricks in a Ziplock bag. Include a index card with your first and last name, address, Flickr name, and how many spots you have signed up for.

US residents: Please include a self-addressed-stamped-envelope.

International participants: You may have the fabric shipped to me directly and I will cut and sort if for you. We will also work out a payment for return postage via Paypal. .

6. All bricks must be mailed to me by May 16. This way everyone will have them in plenty of time to work on Christmas in July projects.

Each participant may sign up for as many spots as they wish.

There are only 28 spots available.

*these guidelines were borrowed from another brick swap group.

Of course you can join! I live in Greece! Just make sure you leave room for the extra shipping time that it takes for the fabric to get to it's destination. I know it takes 10 days for my fabric to arrive to the States so I try to send everything at least 10 days early, does this help? I hope you join, just tell us how many spots you would like.

Does the fabric need to be from a quilt shop or are local chain stores ok?
admin
Frizzymama13:

I think it would only be fair to keep it all quilt shop quality. Thanks for asking. Would you like a spot?
admin
**See the discussion where I link the shop I found for Christmas fabric on sale. **

You know you want another spot...or two. :)
Boopsi52 5 years ago
Going to take one more spot please and I will post my fabrics. Thanks!

brenda_and_blue 5 years ago
I am assuming you want 2014 fabrics rather than previous years? Or is that not the case?

Doesn't matter to me :)

I'd take one more spot unless someone else wants it badly. I love swaps and it's been a long time. We used to do 9-patch swaps in the old days, sending along a 6 1/2" square of each fabric used. Swap themes. Color, Halloween, 30s, whatever. I need to put all those 9-patches into cuddle quilts or something. The charms are all over my stash so out of the picture as far as the blocks are concerned.

Woot! It's too bad we don't live close, we have the perfect excuse to go fabric shopping, now.
Tulsa Tiff 4 years ago
No doubt! Although I always have a perfect excuse to go shopping of any type, I'm a woman.

Got my package back in the mail yesterday. Thank you all for the bricks -- fun to see the variety of fabrics available and what we choose to share. And thanks, Amanda, for hosting and putting up with swappers like me.
