I have partners on the first page. If it looks wrong let me know as soon as you can. I will be sending out individual pms as soon as I can, but if you are impatient (like I usually am,) feel free to pm your partner directly! I hope this is a great swap like the last one!

Ok, I have sent out everyone's information ( minus one, but I had a question for her.) I did however get a phone call in the middle sending out the information, so please double check that what I sent you matches up with the first page of this post. Thanks! Happy Swapping!

These fabric swaps are DANGEROUS!!!

Spent way too much time and cash in the fabric store today!  Going to check out another place that's new tomorrow, then I will be sending out soon.

I've got a while before I'll be sending out. I want to make a trip to the fabric district, which is guaranteed to a) kill a day, b) empty my wallet.

I can only dream about having a fabric DISTRICT around here.  There are a few good shops & I find more all the time, but a district would certainly make me go broke.

Sounds like a fun way to kill a day anyway.

Well, my husband is dragging me to the comic book convention (I like comics, not so big on the conventions) with him today, so maybe I can convince him to drop by afterwards "since we're in the neighborhood."

I have all of my fabric bought and nearly ready to go. I am hoping to have them packaged and out in the next few days.

So I figured I should start a gallery. Here it is http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158898.0

I know this sounds silly, but I just wanna make sure my math is right...
How much is 1/2 a yard to be exact?
I was thinking it's 18"x52" but I just wanna make sure...  Huh
Thanks Cheesy

18 inches and the other number can vary depending on the width of your fabric. Some fabrics come 45" to 54" I've seen a range. So however it comes off of the bolt. Most fabrics (as far as I know,) are 45" at least the cottons that most of us are swapping.

Hope that helped.

Sendout is tomorrow, and I haven't heard from 4 people, so I am assuming they are sending either today or tomorrow. If something has come up, please let me know.

The post seems to be being kind to us so far, my package to Ireland has already been received! Hopefully the rest will continue to go quickly!
