How does it work you ask???
All items should be mailed in a 10 1/2" x 15" padded envelope. They aren't too expensive and can be found at Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store.
You will fill the envelope with something (or somethings) that are valued at $5.00. They just have to be able to fit into the envelope.
What type of items?
Anything that can safely fit into the envelope, for example:
a paperpack book
note cards and pens
pictures or a plaque
This will be a secret swap, so the person you get, won't be the one that has your name.
1. Be sure to include a card or letter that has your name, blog information, and email address on it so your partner can send a Thank You. This way they can give you credit for the sweet goodies when they blog or post about it. A Thank you of some sort is required.
2. The value of the goodies in the envelope must be $5.00. This does not include the cost of the envelope and the postage.
3. Only sent items you would want to receive. Please try to stay away from Dollar Store/Tree items. I know they do sometimes have some neat items but please... no junk that you wouldn't appreciate receiving yourself.
4. Do NOT sign up if you don't intend to follow through. No one likes to get 'stiffed' on a swap even if it is one of a smaller value. We will make a list and you will not be able to participate in future swaps. We do realize that things do happen beyond our control and ask that if they do.... please let us know ahead of time.
Sign Ups will run from today, September 1st, until Thursday, September 8th. I will send out your partners
information to you on the 9th. Your envelopes should be mailed by September 24th. Please let me know you mailed yours.
Please send the following information to me at:
1. Your Name and Address:
2. Blog URL:
3. Email Address: (this is for my records only)
4. Would you mind shipping to Canada or the UK?
5. Do you have anything that you are allergic too that
shouldn't be sent??? A certain scent or possibly a food
6. Tell us a little about yourself to let your partner
know what you like or dislike.
Don't forget that sign ups last until September 8th, so
sign up today and join in on the fun!

Just like before you can choose to do whatever you would like to do with it. Maybe transfer it to a piece of wood and paint it, do a stitchery... or maybe create your own pattern and make a little stuffed scarecrow. Its totally up to you!
Since everyone is busy, we are running this challenge from today, July 15th through August 31st. All you have to do to participate is submit a picture of your finished creation to share with everyone.
The only rule is that you must be a forum member or a follower of our blog to participate.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and we will be happy to help you!

We all know that everyone is ready for spring, so we figured why not do a spring themed swap!!
This is a spring swap not easter, an easter one will follow later!
It will consist of 3 items, 1 fabric item and 2 wild card items of your choice
as long as they are Spring themed.
You can do more if you choose but you do not have to!
Think of all the fun this will be, what a way to rid those winter blues!!
Sign Ups Taken Until February 25th and then partners will be sent out!
You will have until March 15th to mail your package to your partner with delivery conformation!
HOW TO SIGN UP:
Visit Us At: http://primpals.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=swaps&action=display&thread=2732
Or e-mail us for more information
Use "Swap Info" as your subject!!
Come Join The Fun!!

Just think how much fun it would be to receive blocks from 50 or more of your fellow prim brothers or sisters from all over. 50 you say???? Well... we don't know if there would be that many but just think how neat it would look to create even a lap quilt or small wall hanging out of the blocks you would receive.
What???? Make a quilt too???
Well that is where the challenge comes in. After we do the swap, we would have the challenge of making something out of the blocks. Don't worry... We won't leave you hanging in case you have never done something like this before. We will post some tutorials and ideas on putting it together too.
How is it going to work????
To try and get more people involved we will also post this on our Facebook page and encourage you to post on your pages or blog too! The more the merrier, right??? You don't have to belong to the Prim Pal Forum though we hope you would want to because it can be lots of fun. If you are a forum member, the 20 post limit will not apply to this swap simply because if someone doesn't send their blocks, they won't receive any. Easy peasy.... right?
We will take sign ups starting today until February 15th. We will give you until March 31st to complete your blocks and then a week to send them in to me for distribution.... just like we do on the ornie swaps.
Since we don't know how many will be signing up, I will let everyone know how much postage will be but I can't imagine it being very much. (Possibly, everyone could send a self-addressed stamped manila envelope with the return postage needed. How would that sound?)
After we all received our blocks, we will have a month or two to complete a finished project..... (more time if we need it) Then we can post our finished items on the Craft Challenge section of the forum and here.
So what do you think????? How about that tutorial???
You will need:
One 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" square of white fabric and
Two 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares of a fabric of your choice. (feel free to mix it up. You don't need to use the same fabric for all your blocks)
Lay one of your 2 1/2" squares on your 3 1/2" square, like in the picture.... then stitch across your drawn line.
Turn around and repeat for the second 2 1/2" square.
Trim the excess fabric off 1/4" from your stitched line. This saves from the bulkiness when quilting.
Press the 2 1/2" square towards the outside of your 3 1/2" square.
Now all you have to do is autograph it!
Also... to help prevent shrinkage.... you may want to pre-wash your fabric.
Sign ups start now so come join us in the fun! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Just email us at: email@example.com . We are more than happy to help!
