International Fat Quarter Swap

Many people who have commented on my giveaway post have expressed interest in the Australian designed fabrics we are giving away.

So I am proposing an International Fat Quarter Swap. People from different countries will be paired up and they get to send a fat quarter to each other which is typical of their country. Be it designed by someone of their nationality, printed in their country or contain a theme that is typical of their country. Obviously the stronger the link to your country the better!

If you would like to take part, please leave a comment with your email address and your nationality on this post. You will then be paired with someone from a different country and emails exchanged. Obviously you have to be willing to ship internationally for this to work!

Lets try and find the most unique and beautiful your country has to offer!

Thanks A! And I'm sure you'll pick something wonderful! There are so many smaller American designers - such as Laurie from Scarlet Fig - that you could choose from!

Jenn said...

Count me in... also American, but proud to be from Minnesota and I'll try to find something local! (are we pulling from our stash or buying new?)

I'd love to. I'm in the Southeastern United Sates and would love a swap with someone from another country. I've done Australia and would really love any other European swap.

A family of boys said...

Very cool! I'd love to be involved with this. I'm trying to build up a stash with some interesting fabrics and this would be great.

I'm from the USA, Oregon. I'm sure I can find something fun from here.

I would love to swap from Tennessee, USA. Fabric designer Anna Maria Horner lives in my local area and has wonderful, colorful fabrics I could swap.

I would love to do this. I'm in Canada...from the northern area (think Santa) and fortunately our local shop has lots of fabric suited to the area.

I think my email address says it all LOL!
Oh we have local fibre artists and one lady does a wonderful screen print panel that goes like hotcakes when the tourists come through. I need an excuse to buy one.

Kiza said...

Oh, this sounds like fun! I'd love to take part. :) I'm in the US.

Jennifer S. said...

I'm in - I'm in Southern California, this will be really cool!

Judy said...

I would love to do this and I'm in Indiana USA but I have fabric from some of my travels to China and Brazil. That could work I think.

Bree said...

Thank you all so far for signing up! If you know anyone who lives somewhere exotic, or even not exotic, please spread the word :) You can purchase the fabric or take it from your stash - just try and think local and possibly unusual!

I'll leave it open for another few days and then send out the emails.

Very cool - I'm from Vermont, U.S.

Urban Crunch said...

This is a fantastic idea. Thanks for putting it together!

I live in the boring old US, but I will dig around for smaller designers, maybe someone from my home state or something.

Thanks,
Jaclyn

Michele said...

I think this is a grand idea. Add another American if you don't have too many of us already.

Lori said...
