Experienced Swappers! The batik swap is my first swap, therefore I would like to ask how to best send my package and deal with the return postage. What is "NO METERED MAIL"? I wanted to try a USPS Flat rate envelope ($4.95) but then I have to squeeze another one in with the FQs and postage paid. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Garnie, I just received my fall fat quarters today. They are beautiful. I'm trying to decide what to make with them. Count me in for the Christmas swap. I love Christmas fabric. Suzanne, I'm going to get my batiks out sometime next week. I recently joined the Keepsake Quilting Medley of the Month Club. Every month I receive a package of batik fabrics. They are so gorgeous. I love the surprise each month not knowing what I will receive.

Hello Ladies, I hope you are all having fun with the swapping thats going on...its so nice to see so many getting involved. 

I would like to stress something tho..... PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE SENDING "GOOD QUALITY FABRIC" Please don't send any thin fabrics in, as quilters we like to use a good quality fabric so our quilts will last for years to come.  I can't stress that enough. I do realize that some of you are new to the quilting world, so if you have any questions about whether your fabric is of good quality, please as me or one of the other ladies who would for sure know....thanks.  Joanne fabrics can be hard to find in some areas sometimes thats for sure....so if you can't get your fabric there, Walmart has some pretty nice ones too. Just look for heavier "cotton" fabric ok? Again I'm so glad you all are enjoying the group here.  I'm thinking I may just add one set of rules and everyone can follow those basic ones.  Some are getting alittle confused with diff. rules posted, so I will go thru the diff. ones you girls have posted for your swaps and set up one set for the general fabric swap itself.  

We MUST follow the rules o.k. girls? If we would like to get nice quality fabrics back in return...its only fair to do so sending in.  That has been a problem in the past. If we all follow the rules everyone will be happy happy... :) .  And we all love to be HAPPY now don't we???lol. Happy swapping girls.  

Suzanne...now that I'm back home...please include me in the Batiks swap okie doke? thanks. big hugs girls. 

In September I will be starting a HANDBAG swap.  I will post the rules on that soon. Email me personally and let me know if you would like to do this....toodles.

The show was great...  Took a friend that is new to quilting.  She was like a kid in a toy store...  Got to meet the author.. Marie Bostwick...

Suzanne, Will be looking for my Christmas! And thanks again!

Garnie, couple of things. The package with the quilting books you wanted went in the mail today. I also threw in some quilting thread that I thought you might could use. Found it at my mom's. If not, just toss it. I am going to my LQS tomorrow and will get my FQs in the mail early next week.

All, I have an urgent need for flannel fabric at least 12x24 in reds/browns/greens or blue/browns/greens whatever I can find the most of. (Shades, hues, tints OK) I am making a memory quilt for my best friend whose son passed away yesterday. He was 29 (so nothing juvenile.) Also anyone know of a good online source? I have tried fat quarter shop and hancocks of paducah but not much of a selection
