The birthday Club is now closed. We cannot take any new members in order to be fair to everyone who has been in it since we started. Jamie you are in, but you are the last one. We will start over with a new one in November.
Thanks to all of you who joined. I think it will be so much fun. I have seen what everyone is sending and so far everyone has excellent taste!! I love it! I cant wait to send the packages out to our brithday ladies!!!

one more quick question,
What is considered a low thread count? I want to get some good deals, but I don't want to go "cheap" either, so ANYONE, please respond asap, because I am leaving in about 1/2 hour to go to an appt. and then to the fabric store.
Thanks to anyone who can help me out in a hurry!

Looking forward to getting to know my team better, I've been here, then gone, then here, then gone, I'm going to make an effort get onto the computer to connect with more of you in this group. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon -YOYO

How thoughtful of you to want Jan and Feb girls to be included now!!! I know I "would" wait too, but would be thrilled if someone thought of a way so that they wouldn't have to wait like you did ms. porknbeans!!!

Marta, can I throw out a suggestion? How about if we include the January birthdays in March, and the February ones in April. That way nobody who wants to participate would be left out for 2008.

My birthday is in June, so it wouldn't effect me, but I noticed we've had some sweet Jan/Feb ladies sign up who are willing to wait. I would love to see them share the joy now. What do you think? Would anyone object?

If you signed up to be in the birthday club and have not emailed me with the requested information, please do so when you have time so I can include it on the updated list. Please use my personal email address: quiltingcruises@yahoo.com
Thanks, Marta
PS If you haven't join and would like to join, it's not too late.

LOL - If I can still join in - my birthday is on February 19. This is such a fun idea!!

Starting over is so much
easier when you never stop in the first place... But when you fall short, that's when you have the chance to prove how great you really are.

Absolutely, I can do that. I will still send out a list each month with the birthdays for the next month, but I like that idea. I will also send out an email to everyone when someone new joins. Thanks for a great idea. That will work perfect since I always seem to find exactly what I want when I am not looking for it, but let me go shopping for something specific and I will never find it!!!!! Marta

I'm in. Birthday June 20. Like jewel tones, batiks.

I do have a suggestion. Once everyone has committed, could you organize a sheet for us that shows all of the names, b'days, and color preferences for the year? That way we could do them all of the year at first, or as we have extra cash flow to make them up ahead, or are out shopping and see something specific that someone likes.

Unfortunately, I dont think I can get it all pulled together in time for us February Ladies, so we have to wait a year. We can start with March Birthdays.

I would like to start a birthday club for our group. Here is how it would work. Anyone who would like to participate can sign up. All you need to do is post your name and birthday as a reply to this email. Then, AFTER you sign up, please send me an email to quiltingcruises@yahoo.com In the email please include your name, address, birthday, (phone)and email address and list a few things you really like, for instance, I love the color purple, I love dogs, butterflies, etc, plus any other info about you that you would like to share with us. At the end of each month I will send an email to every brithday club member listing the names and birthdays for the following month and a list of what each person likes, if they have provided that info. Everyone signed up will send either one fat eighth or one set of 5 charms for each birthday girl to me with at least one postage stamp for each fat eighth or pk of charms, (to help pay for shipping) You may include a card, note, or whatever youd like with the fat eighth or charm pk, you can send them to me individually about 10 days before each brithday,or, you can send all the fat eighths or charms for the whole month together at the same time. Please include at least one postage stamp per fat eighth or charm pack sent. About 4-5 days before their birthday, I will send out a package with all the fat eighths, charm pks and notes and cards to the birthday GIRL. You can base the fat eighth around that persons likes or interests, or choose something totally different. Here are the rules if anyone would like to participate.

#1 Toward the end of the month I will send an email to everyone that is a member of the birthday club. That email will list the names and dates of birth for each member celebrating a birthday that month. For Birthdays that are early in the month, I will list them in the previous month so I can hopefully get their fat eighths to them on or before their birthday.

#2 You agree to send one fat eighth or pack of 5 charms for each lady having a birthday that month. You can send them to me individually, or send all of them for that month at one time.

#3 Please put each fat eighth into a seperate ziploc bag with the brithday girls name on it. Also include your name too so they know who has sent that beautiful fabric to them. Please try to get them to me at least 5 days before the birthdate. In each ziploc bag, please include at least one postage stamp.

#4 If you sign up for your birthday, you also agree to send one fat eighth or one 5 charm pack for each birthday that is being celebrated each month.

5. HAVE FUN AND ENJOY YOUR BIRTHDAY PACKAGE!!!

6. Please post a picture on your page in your photo gallery of whatever you made with your brithday fabrics so we can all enjoy it. (This is not a requirement, I just like to see what everyone does.)

Marta
