Do You Swap?

Do you Swap?

I am talking about joining a group of other fabric lovers and focusing on a certain fabric design, or designer to type of fabric.

Most groups are made up of 56 participants and require you to purchase quilt shop quality fabric of 1 or 2 yards. Then cut yardage into 5 in charms (or some into 10 in charms.)

You then send your fabric to the host and she sorts all those lovelies into 56 or 112 pieces per person and sends back to you. There is usually a Flickr group set up so that you can post your fabric choices and allows you to see what everyone else is buying too. This is so fun because there are probably many choices that you would not normally be able to purchase --- I know some try, but most can't have it all ;)

There is even a Fabric Swap Finder Group on Flickr here to help you find a swap you are interested in!

Here is a new swap I am in now that still have slots open if you are interested:

And what can you make with all those little charms??
Check it out here!

Happy Thursday!



  1. I have swapped a couple of times, I am waiting on some Christmas Fabrics from a swap as I write. It is a great way to add to your stash with fabrics that you might never otherwise come across. Look forward to seeing what you get and what you do with them.

  2. I've signed up with the Low Volume Swap too. Haven't decided on what I'll do with mine yet, have you? Can't wait to see what you'll be making with your's. =)

  3. I had never done a charm swap until last month. Did an I-spy on Quilting Board. I have done several block swaps, though. I will check this swap out. Thanks for the heads up.


Thanks for the comment! I love hearing from you!
