Fabric Pre-cut Swaps

This group is designed to swap fabric that is pre-cut to a predetermined size for different types of projects.

The idea behind this group is to use your existing fabric stash to get rid of some of you extras pieces from other projects, while obtaining new colors and patterns to help you complete new projects.

This is how it works:

Start with 12 ziplock bags.  In each bag you will insert the number of pieces of fabric designated for that particular swap.

Send in 11 of the bags with a self-addressed, stamped envelope to receive to same number of bags sent in by the other participants.

If fewer than 12 people participate, you may receive duplicate bags from the other participants.  If more than 12 participate you may not receive a bag from each participant, but you will receive at least 11 different bags.

Please keep track of your USPS tracking numbers, as I cannot be responsible for lost or missing packages.

This swap is going to be a little different from most, so let me explain how it will work.  We all have projects that we would like to add a little more to, in order to finish it up, but we hate having to run out and buy a bunch of fat quarters just…Continue

This is a fun swap for those of us who have ever purchased fabric while delirious or otherwise mentally incapacitated.  In other words, it is time to give up some of that ugly fabric that you have hidden in embarrassment from your more sane…Continue

I just got some devastating news and I am brokenhearted. One of our dear friends, who isn't even 40 yet, has died. This time last year, his wife died of a slip and fall accident in their home.  Their children discovered her when they came home from school.  I truly believe he has died of a broken heart.  Since her death he has suffered from severe depression, lost a lot of weight, and started drinking.  Luckily this time the kids were away at summer camp.  This young man and his brother were our neighbors.  Their mom was a single parent like I was, at that time.  She went in for a routine medical procedure and died of an allergic reaction to the anesthesia.  The boys, who were a junior and senior then did not want to change schools, so instead of moving away to live with their father, they moved in with me and my two kids.  So this young man was like a son to me.  I feel so bad for those poor children.

Ladies, this month's fabric swap provided my husband with endless entertainment as he watched me sit on bags of fabric in an attempt to get all of the air out of the bags so that they would fit in a flat-rate envelope.  But I prevailed and they have all been packaged.

However, I want everyone to be aware that the USPS is making some big changes in a couple of weeks on how much they charge for shipping packages and large envelopes.  (You know, because they don't charge enough already) #!@#Sarcasm#@!#  I will keep you posted as I find out more.  I understand that it is not going to be done by weight, but by the size of the package.  I will let you know if this changes how much I will need for flat rate envelopes.

I may change this to an every other month swap due to the costs.

Geiranger Fjord, It was snowing and sleeting when we first arrived.

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on May 23, 2019 at 11:38pm

Don't forget, I won't be back until June 6th.  Don't forget to send return envelopes or if you want me to send them, in flat rate envelopes to send me a check.  Thanks.

Sure hope it turns out to be a marvelous experience, Kathy.

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on May 21, 2019 at 7:31pm

Ladies, it is time for me to say goodbye, at least until June 6th.  Otherwise, I will never get my packing done.  I volunteered to keep the baby entertained on the Atlanta to Paris leg of the trip.  At least it is at night.  But I don't know what my daughter-in-Law was thinking when she booked the return flight.  It leaves Copenhagen at 1:30pm with a long layover in NYC and we don't arrive in Atlanta until  14.5 hrs after leaving Copenhagen.  It will take me days to recover.  LOL  I will need a vacation from my vacation.
