Traveling Stash is visiting ME!!

Look what came to visit my house! I won the priveledge of having th traveling stash. Visit me! Hilachas & My Sister Made Me Do It started their own "Two Sisters Traveling Stash". SO! I have a week to choose my treasures and load it up with some from me!
Do you want it to. Come visit you next? Leave a comment here and let me know! Now there are a few rules!


The usual rules will prevail for “Two Sisters” Traveling Stash:”

1. Be an active blogger. Post about receiving and the giveaway on your blog within a week.
2. There is a note in the box that logs where the box has been. Please add your info and place the note back in the box.
3. There is a list of Rules and Guidelines in the box. Please read and follow these and return the list to the box. The box we will use shall be a USPS large Flat Rate Box which ships for $15.95. If the box you receive is damaged or unusable you can get another one free of charge from the Post Office.
4. You may take anything you like from the box. Just replace every item with comparable quilt shop quality items equal to the amount taken. See guidelines below.
5. Ship the box to the next person within 3 days of announcing the winner.
6. Due to postage constrictions, shipping is only within the USA.
The definition of a stash is a secret store of valuables. For quilters it's a collection of usable quality products. The stash should contain mostly fabric with a few patterns and/or books and other items.
  • FABRIC: Should be quilt shop quality in new condition. Scraps should only be included if they are cut for adding to a collection and packaged accordingly (i.e. I-Spy squares, postage stamp squares, etc.). There should not be anything under a Fat Quarter unless packaged like this.
  • PATTERNS/BOOKS: Should be in new or gently used condition. They should be kept to a minimum (books are bulky and take up space that most of us would rather have for fabric).
  • OTHER ITEMS: Should be in new or gently used condition. Tools, notions, etc. These items should be packaged if necessary.
  • If you receive a box with anything that is of "poor" condition you should not feel guilty in tossing it out but please do NOT announce that you have done so. Please just do so quietly.
  • Only put items in the box that you would be proud to own. The box is NOT a dumping place for all your outdated unwanted items.
  • Items should be free of smoke and pet hairs.
  • You must replace items you take with the same quantity of like-kind items. Replacing more than you take is always welcome. :)

Now that we have all that straightened out! LOL Leave me a comment by midnight on Friday the 17th!!! I will draw a winner next Saturday!! That will give me a week to grab some goodies and decide what I am going to replace them with and give EVERYONE a chance to leave a comment and get in on this fun!!! This will be SO MUCH FUN!!
I can't wait to see where it will go next!!
Have a great weekend all!!
Josie :o)
