Details of swap:

Getting new fabric is so much fun! This is a fun way to increase your stash and help someone else increase theirs, too. Participants will be sending out 1 half yard and 4 fat quarters to their partner.  In return, you will receive 1 half yard and 4 fat quarters. Participants have the option of sending (and receiving) 1 or 2 packages.
A fat quarter is typically 18x22 and a half yard is typically 18x44.

Please remember that anything you send needs to be in new condition (unless your partner has requested vintage or old fabrics.) Since there is no crafting involved in this swap, you will only have a few weeks between the end of signups and the send out date. Even though it is an easy swap, please remember to have good communication with your parter! Delivery Confirmation (DCN) is required for this swap. Please send the number to the organizer and your partner once your package is sent.

not to sound like a complete fabric swap noob, but i have fabric that is "new" but it has already been machine washed in warm water and dried on high heat.  does that still count as new?

well... that is something you can ask your partner, personally I dont prewash my fabrics before I work with them so I wouldnt want that, but if the fabric you have fits your partners specifications on the form for the swap then you can ask if she/he wouldn't mind getting that piece. Hope that helps Smiley

I just sent my info in. I'm collecting batiks to make a quilt, so I'm hoping that this will help add to my stash.  Cool
