Looking for a fun and easy way to get a bit of diversity in your scrap bins? Then you may be interested in joining the current round of the Fabric Scrap Swap.
Sign-Ups for this round will be open until Saturday, the 11th of April, 2015.
Partners will be sent out no later than Tuesday, the 14th of April, 2015.
All packages need to be shipped no later than Thursday, the 30th of April, 2015
The fine print:
You are required to send scraps of fabric that equal 1 yard (36" x 36") when laid out from end to end and side to side and are no smaller than 2.5" x 2.5" inches, unless your partner requires otherwise. It must be quilt shop quality fabrics and not come from JoAnn Fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Hobby Lobby or any other big box retailer.
If unsure about the weight and amount to send, 4 FQ's of quilting cotton fabric for example have a weight of about 160g / 5.64 oz. Anything up from that amount will always ensure that you're on the safe side.
You are not required to send any handmade items or extras, but of course are welcome to add extras if you want.
International participants are welcome, but please note that this is a Flickr only swap, so you must have a working Flickr profile to be able to join.
For a full list of rules and guidelines as well as the sign-up form please check the Flickr Group for this swap.
Hope to see you there! :)
