How should we reply?  Like a list of things we'd like to see on fabric?  Materials?  Colors?

Hi,

Because everyone ships to 3 others the cost of shipping is a concern for anyone outside US.  I would probably end up spending around $30-$45 on shipping alone... so, would you be able to include in this thread a tally of interested parties from the Southern Hemisphere?  I guess we'd need at least 4 people from our end of the world so that each person would have 3 people to send to.  If you got 4 or more we could all then sign up officially knowing that we wouldn't be obliged to spend more on shipping than fabric.

This isn't a whinge, by the way.  I'll be eagerly watching to see what goodies everyone gets and will still enjoy it even if I don't take part this time.

A separate question now:  will there be a follow up to see what people have been inspired to do with fabric they received?

Cheers all,
Jen.

A half yard isn't much. Maybe a buck or two within the US. Put it in one of those small yellow padded envelopes.

For non US participants- you will only be able to participate if at least 2 others from your area join. Sorry but shipping can be expensive. Feel free to sign up and I will post a list to inspire others to join.

I am so excited. I just signed up.  I've worked at a fabric store in high school for nearly 3 years, then managed at a JoAnn's a couple years ago. NEedless to say I've got to much stuff. And I keep buying, more and more!! Hopefully I can weed out some stuff I don't use, and get some stuff I will! Brilliant PinkMafia!

Thanks for organizing this, PinkMafia!

Thank you. Thank you! Thank you!.
Even from Canada it gets expensive to ship. Mostly because of the DC. I can ship and oversized letter for only 4-5 dollars but with a DC it's 10-20 dollars. That makes a huge difference when shipping 3 items!
