Bonnie & Camille Aussie Charm Swap - Sign Up Open!

The sign ups are now officially open for the Bonnie & Camille Aussie Charm Swap!
Here are the details:

1) FIRST IN, BEST DRESSED!  This swap will be open to 56 participants, me being one of those!  You HAVE to email me to obtain a spot.  Your spot is not confirmed until you have received a return email from me! All of B&C's fabric lines except for the Christmas/Holiday ones can be included. The included lines are listed below.

2) Each spot is 2 B&C fabrics, 1 yard of each, and I strongly suggest that you purchase at least 1/4 yard more in case of any cutting mistakes you might experience.  Better safe than sorry.

3) Fabric must be new and unwashed and from a smoke free environment.

4) Press your fabric and remove the selvages before cutting. Cut your yardage into 5 inch squares (56 per yard) total = 112 charms. You can follow the great tutorial on how to cut your charms from yardage by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh, Frannson! found here.  Please sort your charms in to pairs,, as demonstrated in this photo:

5) Post them out to me by 25th August. Put them in a Ziplock bag and include your 112 charms, an index card with your name, mailing address and email address (in case your package opens up, your charms will stay safe and dry and your contact info will get them back to you. I don't know if this has ever happened in real life but again, better safe than sorry). You must post them to me using a PRE-PAID SATCHEL.  You must also include a SELF ADDRESSED PRE-PAID SATCHEL so that your charms can be mailed back to you. I will not be billing anyone through Paypal. Unfortunately due to the cost and complexity of shipping back internationally, this swap will be for Australian/Kiwi participants only.
  Once I receive them all I will sort and return a stack of 112 different charms to each participant! You can sign up for ONE SPOT, however, if there are spots remaining after one week, I will open up those remaining spots to existing swap members.  They will be in the mail to you 2-3 weeks later. I will be aiming to have them all in the return post by mid to late September - fingers crossed!

6) Very important!!! Please choose fabrics that have not been claimed by another swap member. Please join the B&C AUSSIE CHARM SWAP FACEBOOK GROUP - Once you have had your spot CONFIRMED and check before purchasing fabrics to see what has already been chosen; we want to avoid duplicates. Once you have chosen your fabrics please post pictures, with the Fabric line and specific print/colour information to the Facebook group Photo Album.  Once you've chosen your fabrics make sure you add the photos AND include the name/description of them.

7.  There is a $5 fee per swap spot.  This is to be paid via Paypal, once your spot is confirmed.  
So who wants to join in on the Bonnie & Camille fabric fun?
Your Name
Mailing Address
Email Address
Phone Number (just in case)
Blog address (if you have one)

When I email you and confirm that you are in the swap, I will include my postal address and Paypal information.

Grab the new blog button and feel free to spread the news if you'd like!

Here are all the Bonnie & Camille lines that are included in this swap. Remember, no Christmas/Holiday fabrics. Some of the older lines are a bit hard to find, but Google is your friend!

  1. Woo hoo! Email sent! Thanks Melissa, I'm looking forward to this one. :-)

  2. Please please let me be in! I've emailed you my details.
    Good luck everyone.

  3. Hi Melissa i just emailed you

  4. This is such a cool swap! Almost wish I lived in Australia or New Zealand! Am a huge fan of Bonnie and Camille fabrics. Look forward to seeing what is created!

  5. Hi Melissa, I have just sent you my details too!

  6. I'm not joining in but I'm betting this will be as much fun as the KS one was. And for the record, yes a package has opened up in the mail before. This happened to one of my KS swappers the last time. Thankfully she did have it in a baggie with her name and address so it was sent back to her.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment - I read each and every one of them! xx
