Kim let me know her layer cakes arrived safely in Canada in January, so this swap is a wrap!!!

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made this swap a lovely success! I am looking forward to making beautiful quilty objects with these scrappy sets.

Time to think soon of a "Spring Layer Cake Swap" ...

hmmmmmm ... I am thinking maybe ...

30's Repros!

Oh, Pat, you do know how to tempt a girl!! LOL I'm trying NOT to join in more swaps (since fabric and postage costs are so much higher here and money is getting squeezed tighter by the day :( ) - I will keep it in mind, though - there is only one LQS around here that sells the 30s fabrics - no, I lie, FAbricland has a very few now, I forgot about them - and though they are a chain, they have #1 quality fabrics - current lines, too!

I will think on it, and when you DO decide, I'll decide - how's that? :)

Hey Pat

I do like the sound of the 30's swap. Let me know when. I read back on how your Christmas one was done. So the only mailing I would have to do is to the hostess/swapper. Correct.lol

This could be a fun spring.

Hugs and stitches

YAH I am alll for it Pat!! LOL but you knew that

Yes Debbieann, all you do is cut your fabric, put 1 set in each plastic bag with name on it, send them all (however many sets you want to do) to Pat, with a SASE and she does the magic and sends different fabric back.

Debbie, as to the SASE, since we cannot put Canadian (or British or Aussie, etc.) stamps on to be mailed FROM the US, we usually send FQs or something of equal value - you discuss this with Pat (or in different swaps - like the Christmas ornament swap we had - the presiding hostess who does the swapping) , usually in a PM, as to what is appropriate.

Good news!

Jess has approved a Spring Fabric Swap and Nola has agreed to be my co-host again! Thanks, ladies!

So ...

The "Spring Back to the 30's" Layer Cake Swap will be posted soon!

Our "Layer Cakes" will again be sets of TEN 10" squares ...

All 30's repros, washed quality all-cotton fabrics.

This will follow the same guidelines as the Winter Swap.

The only change will be regarding DUPLICATES.  Although there is a vast variety of 30's repros, many of them are very similar in design and color and although I will ask swappers to submit photos of their fabrics again for us to all enjoy ... and to try to avoid sending the same fabric as another swapper...  it may be too difficult to tell from a photo if the fabrics are actually the same.  So, although I will again try to avoid duplicates in return packages, I am not going to worry too much about this. Okay, swappers?

Everyone welcome!

Swappers from outside the USA may again make private arrangements to send additional fabric for the return postage.

Time frame will be to have sign-ups until mid-March. All fabric should be mailed to me by the end of March and hopefully (if all the swap packets are received by me by mid-April) I will have the return packages in the mail by the end of April.

So let's start planning our swap!

  Pat

I really enjoyed the Christmas swap and would love to join the 30's one, butttt they isn't anywhere around here where i can purchase the fabric. So just don't know what to do.

Cheers Ann

YAH!!! Thanks Ms Pat, and Nola, and Jess

Sigh~ we drove by my LQS yesterday, and I saw that it was either closed for good, or just moved...as it was another store now    she had lots of '30s repo's, that I was planning on buying for this. Guess I'll have to find some elsewhere.

hmmmm ...

Thanks to all who are posting feedback

I am sure we can work out some of these issues.

There is plenty of time for USA swappers to find some bargains online, I think ... such as these ...

Jess still has some Pampered Pooch left ... here is a five yard bundle for a good price ..

http://webstore.quiltropolis.net/stores_app/Browse_Item_Details.asp?Shopper_id=864212134618864&Store_id=691&page_id=23&Item_ID=1772

and a few pieces here ...

other possibilities ...

http://www.quiltfabriccloseouts.com/cgi-bin/Store/store.cgi?keywords=30's&tracking4=search%2030's

.. just to show a few

If you are an international swapper who wants to participate and cannot get these locally ... or are concerned about postage ... please feel free to PM me so we may work something out.

It may be possible for a few of you outside the USA to order your fabric online here and have it shipped to me and I will wash, cut and stack ... a yard yields one set of 10 and there would be two extra squares of your own fabric for me to send home to you. For postage we can figure something out. 

For example, I love Australian quilt magazines and maybe those of you OZ could send a few from your stacks in lieu of pastage.

For those of you in the UK, I am sure we can find something that will work for both of us.

I always accept fabric instead of postage from out of country swappers (it does not have to be swap theme) and particularly like medium tone-on-tones of any color.

What I usually do is let you know how much it will cost me to send to you by our postal rates and you can just use this to figure how much fabric to send ... in the case of Canadian swappers, for two or three sets it would only be a couple of your fat quarters.

Ann ... for example ... I really like the neutrals in your RR ... and I am going to be needing a lot of these for some scrappy settings (like with my Americana swap fabric) ... so you could maybe send some sets of neutrals and I will just absorb them ...  

So if you are on the fence and want to jump in ... just let me know ...    Pat

Pat, FYI - the magazines are a good idea, but they cost a lot to ship (in case you didn't know ) Midge sent me one once in exchange for some fabric she couldn't get there, and I was appalled at the cost to send one magazine here! Sending fabric in lieu of always made the most sense to me.

I am still thinking on this one - only one store locally (well, in the next city over) sells 30s fabrics - I need to keep costs in mind, so may just pass on this. We'll see.

Gerda ... that does make sense about the postage ... had not thought about that as I have never done it this way before ...

fabric does always work for me ...

I know budgets are tight and you will be missed, Gerda, but I fully understand.   Pat
