View Full Version : Inchies ATC Swap, Due 30th April

02-28-2008, 03:26 PM
Due date: 30th April
Sign-up/Withdraw by 30th March
3 for 3 swap (that's it, no extra sets please)
maximum participants: 30

All cards were mailed out on the 7th May 2008!

After my obsession with making inchies I decided those inchies might look great on ATCs! For this swap there should be 3 inchies on your ATC minimum and the ATCs should have an interesting background. All techniques are welcome. I just love all the variety this produces! Check out my blogsite http://friedaquilter.blogspot.com/ under the inchies label to see some inchies I've made. You can attach the inchies in any way you like to your ATC, just make sure they are secure!

Make sure your username is on the back of every ATC and also on your return envelope. Enclose your ATCs in clear sleeves.

UK participants, please enclose a SSAE with the same postage as is required to mail to me. I would really like to insist on the addressed envelope!!

US participants, please enclose a self addressed envelope and LOOSE US postage to the same amount as it takes to mail to me (which I can use to participate in US based swaps) or if you like enclose a small gift in lieu.

Other nationalities, pleased enclose a self addressed envelope and I will cover your postage.

The Self Addressed Envelope wherever you are mailing from, is not optional. I really need it!! These are very large swaps and having to decifer addresses and writing envelopes adds just too much time to the mailing out. Easier for me to just stick them in your envelope! Thanks so much!

Please e-mail me for my address once your ATCs are ready for the mail!

I know life sometimes gets in the way and you simply have to withdraw. I don't mind at all, but please let me know as soon as possible should this happen.Any questions, let me know!

Red = inchies received

LOL! Your title threw me for a loop - I thought inchies? ATC? inchies?? Great idea!

friedaquilter
02-28-2008, 03:36 PM

Merricat

stitchwunderkind, just a gentle reminder that there are now less than 10 days left till the due date of this swap and the mail from The States can easily take as long as that to get to Scotland, so maybe time to pop them in the post soon!

craftyvox, we can both relax as your lovely cards are safely here, taking a total of 15 days to cross the North Sea. They must have taken the scenic route!! Thanks so much for the US postage you enclosed!

Paperfairys, the Royal Mail did not let us down and your wonderful surprise package arrived today. What a yummy selection of goodies and an extra ATC and postage money!! Thanks a million, I had a lovely time admiring it all!

Only Pippin's cards to come and they are on their way and will hopefully arrive before the due date. I haven't heard anything from Marlien and she has not visited the group since the middle of last month so I'm assuming she won't mail her cards. Can't wait to swap and have another look at all those wonderful cards!

Sadly Pippin's cards haven't arrived yet and as Monday is a public holiday here in the U.K. won't be here till Tuesday at the earliest. However, thanks to your never-ending generosity I have enough extra cards to cover hers and then some, I aim to swap the cards out over the weekend in time for the Post Office on Tuesday!

That's sad, I don't mind if you want to hold my returns to trade one with her.

Pesky post, so sorry I thought they would have been there by now!! I do have some more that I did, so if they have not arrived by Tuesday I will send another set.

I'll wait for the mail delivery on Tuesday and then swap out! Hope that's okay with everyone and if her cards haven't arrived by then, there will be enough extra's to make sure Pippin gets 3 wonderful ATCs too! How is that for a compromise?

Pippin
05-05-2008, 09:42 AM
I am sending another set today anyway, I know they wont be there by tomorrow but I feel bad. I like these better too!! Oh well!!

And I'm pleased to say that Pippin's cards (her second lot) are now safely here. Her first lot must have disappeared somewhere over the Atlantic. I'll enclose these with some randomly chosen participants of this swap who are also in the copper inchie swap as RAKs. Still need your address, Pippin, so I can mail you out your returns!
