Lunatic Scrap Giveaway

Want some freebies?  

Step 1

Send me an email and let me know you want to participate..I have a LOT of stuff to give away but the amount is finite!

I have a lot of  scraps from my own cloth production, hand dyes, weird stuff, old stuff, commercial prints -you name it. When has the last time you saw hot pink holographic Lurex? There are  bits and pieces of all kinds of cloth that I will never use and just cannot throw away. Most are very small, less than 4" square, some a little more. I will stuff as much as possible of the interesting and cool stuff into one of these little free flat rate boxes from the PO so it won't be pretty when you get the box open. In fact, it will probably explode! The folks at my PO laugh at how I tape up my bundles..hey, it's their tape which they give me for free!.

2. Get a small, flat rate priority mail box from your local post office. Put your name and address and the correct amount of postage on it, leave it unfolded and send it to me in an envelope:
->>I'VE BEEN ADVISED THAT THESE BOXES ARE SOMETIMES HARD TO COME BY. IF THEY DON'T HAVE ANY BOXES JUST SEND ME THE POSTAGE STICKER AND A PRIORITY MAIL LABEL FILLED OUT WITH YOUR ADDRESS.<<-

(thanks for reminding me to add that tidbit Rosalie)


If you have preferences for a specific kind or color fabric, put in a note and I'll do my best to honor your requests and I may need a little time to pick and choose for you. Best, let me choose wildly for you!

 

Small Flat Rate Box

Domestic Rate: $4.85
International Rate: $10.88 (Mexico/Canada), $12.78 (all other countries check if available and how much)


I'VE BEEN ADVISED THAT THESE BOXES ARE SOMETIMES HARD TO COME BY. IF THEY DON'T HAVE ANY BOXES JUST SEND ME THE POSTAGE STICKER AND A PRIORITY MAIL LABEL FILLED OUT WITH YOUR ADDRESS.


3. Sit by your mailbox and wait. Email me  if you have any questions.

Hi Deb, what a great idea. That's so well organized! I would love to be involved, but I will never find one of those kinds of boxes here on the world's edge, and not the right postage either :(

Hi Deb. I read your blog daily and have ordered some of your wonderful fabrics and an art piece. Somehow I can't hook up with your email, but I want to take part in your give-away. I'll be sending a priority mail box early next week...this is a terrific opportunity for all your readers. Jackie Wight

First I thought, oh I want in, then I thought longer and said "No, I should do something similiar" Ha! Hard to get rid of stuff, but gifting items ALWAYS feels right. Do you have a "scrap box" type place down there, where people give things and kids come and learn and make things and teachers can come get supplies for crafts for a song, etc.? " The Scrap box" happens to be the one in Ann Arbor around here, a very cool place and a great cause/idea. If you have a ton some could go there.Not sure if they have a web site or not, so you can see what I mean.This give away will bring good "juju" to your new endeavor of working from home, Good Luck!

I'd be interested, but already have garbage bags full of my own scraps. It's a sickness, and I get anxious when the TV show "Hoarders" is on...

On an earlier topic from your blog--did you see the newest Quilting Arts magazine's article about oatmeal dyeing?
