fabric scraps swap anyone?



wondering if anyone is interested in participating in a fabric scraps swap?

i was thinking something like - you get 10 people to send to and receive from. and you'd send to each person:

*8-10 pieces of fabric that are either 4 x 4 in., 3 by 5 in., 4 x 5 in. or bigger
*10-20 pieces of any size scrap that's smaller than the above
*optional - any other additional scraps you want to send

if you're interested or have suggestions for different dimensions or whatever, send me a comment. if i get at least 9 responses, i'll organize this thing!

(taking a week off from self portrait tuesday)

THE SWAP IS NOW CLOSED.

Thanks for all of your interest! If you commented or emailed me and didn't hear back, please send me your email address again. Thanks!

What a great idea!! I love your blog and visit often. I am interested to try fabric postcards construction and would love someone else's scraps to play with. So you can count me in. 20 or more scraps, any size sounds good to me.

i'm so excited that this is going to happen. so it looks like there are quite a few int'l folks. and i think i've gotten about 12 responses total (13 incl. me). i'm thinking if we get 20 total then maybe we could do 2 groups of 10. if there are fewer than 20, maybe we could send smaller amounts of fabric and send to all participants. i'll keep you posted. am going to collect comments for a few more days i'm thinking. or until we hit 20 people. thanks for your interest!
