Calling all Fabric Scrap Lovers!

Sign-Ups for round 2 of the Fabric Scrap Swap are now open, so if you want some diversity in your scrap stash or just love swapping fabric in general, hop on over to my Flickr group and sign up for this round. 

And here are the details:

This swap is supposed to be an fast and easy one, so no handmade items are required, you will only need to send fabric scraps from your scrap bin. Of course if you want to include a notion or postcard or anything else, that is entirely up to you, but not a must, so please don't be disappointed if all you receive is the fabric scraps.

The amount of scraps you will send in this swap must equal 1 yard (36" x 36") of fabric when laid out from end to end and side to side and must be of quilt shop quality and not come from JoAnn Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby or any other big box retailer.

The fabric scraps must be modern fabric, no home decor or knits and they must not smell like cigarette smoke or be layered with pet hair! Also, this swap is not to be used to get rid of all the fabric you don't like! Make sure you send your partner scraps that meet their colour preferences and send a nice diversity of scraps that are no smaller than 2.5" x 2.5".

I will try my best to match everyone with a partner that has similar likes and dislikes regarding fabric colours, but please understand that this might not always be possible. 

Your partner is a secret partner, so please don't reveal their identity to the group until after they've received what you sent to them. 

This swap is international, the amount of 1 yard was set, because it's a fair amount that can be shipped with not too much expense from any country in the world. When mailing your scraps, please mark them as gift on the customs form with a value no greater than $10.

Sign-Ups for round 2 will be open until Friday, the 17th of January, 2014.
Partners will be sent out no later than Sunday, 19th of January, 2014.
All packages need to be shipped no later than Friday, the 31st of January, 2014

The first round in November was a really successful one and lots of beautiful scraps were exchanged. Let's see how many rounds of this swap we can fit into 2014! :)

See you on Flickr and Happy Swapping!

  1. This sounds like fun but I don't have a flickr account. Do I have to have one to participate?

    1. Hi Sherri, since you're a no-reply blogger I can't email you, but I hope you will see my reply here. Yes, the swap is Flickr based, so you would have to have a Flickr account to join. Thanks for your interest :)
