Vintage Sheet Fat Quarter Swap

I have decided to host another swap. I have seen similar swaps in blogland and missed out on the signups. Here is the scoop.
This swap is for vintage Sheet Fat quarters. There are sooo many things you can do with vintage sheets, the ideas are endless.
Send: between 5 and 20 Vintage Sheet Fat Quarters.(18"x21") to me and I will then send you back the same amount of Fat Quarters as you sent me. Also send return postage in the amount it cost you to send your fat Quarters. That way I can get the new FQ's back to you:)
Sign ups start today and end on June 12th or when there are 50 participants.
Send by date: From confirmation of sign ups through June 30th.
I will then send out your fat quarters by July 10th.
US only please.
Sorry, just easier for me at this time at the end of my pregnancy.
Leave a comment or send me an email to sign up. Please include: Your email address & your blog address. I will then send you an email confirmation with my address for mailing the fat quarters. After I have received all the FQ's I will then mix and match all the FQs and send the new bundles out.
No character sheets
No silks or satins
please make sure the sheets are laundered before mailing
No new sheets- Vintage Please.
Limit the boring solids
Please try to make sure the sheets are in nice condition, no pilling or worn out sheets.
I know that is a lot of rules, sorry! This swap is just a bit different.
Feel free to use the above photo on your blog.
If you have any questions please drop me an email:
Looking forward to this swap!
Have fun hunting for sheets.

I'm game! I was just googling for a vintage sheet swap after seeing others' goodies AND after going by the ones that are done and gone on google, I found yours! WooHoo! And I already have sheets in hand from a Salvation Army trip this weekend!

All my info should be on my blogger profile.

by the way, you might consider putting it on Sew Mama Sew's little announcements to drum up interest and get more swappers if it's slow to get them - of course I'm entering this pretty darn early.

Thanks for hosting!

I'm jealous- you are way closer to having your baby than I am to having mine! :) Congrats on your soon to be baby girl!

Oooh, this sounds interesting! I might have to give it a shot!

@t said...

Hi Jen,

I am NOT signing up for the swap..I don't even know what fat quarter's are..fabric for quilting??
Have fun anyway with the swap.

Yay, yay, yay!!! I just recently started collecting vintage sheets for a quilt and have also been totally bummed about missing others' swaps. Totally count me in! amandafetters at gmail dot com. xo

i'm sending you an email:) please count me in!


amy said...

ooh, i've sent you an e-mail! i'm super excited about this, yet another excuse to go buy more sheets!

one thing i meant to ask and forgot - should each FQ be a different print? since you're divvying them up between the swappers, are duplicates okay?

it'll be really interesting to see if people end up with the same prints, from other people. it's so fun to run across the same sheets all over the place! i've seen people craft with sheets i have as well, and have seen other people comment on the same thing.

Hey Jen! I am totaly in this swap! I did a vsfq swap last year and had lots of leftover sheets. I'm so happy to swap for more. Shawn told me he wants me to wait to do more swaps until the new house is more organized but really, it's just cutting fabric and mailing it, silly Hubby! lol

Robyn said...

I would like to join the fat vintage sheet swap too! Do we have to verify the sheets are cotton? Any requirements on them being floral? Thanks for hosting! Hopefully it's not too much work for you at the end of your pregnancy!!

Jerilyn said...

I'm fairly certain I'll be joining the swap. I'll let you know for sure on monday... need to do some thrifting first!
