I <3 KONA Charm Swap Round 2 - Signup Information

Alright folks the much anticipated Round 2 of the I <3 KONA Charm Swap is here! I will try to keep this short and sweet so you can run along and sign up :)

ROUND 2 is coming!!

Swap Details

For this round I will be accepting 56 participants and we will be breaking into two groups of 28 people. Because, of the interest in the last round at this time I am allowing only one spot per person that way everyone can get a chance for a spot.

Each participant will purchase one yard of fabric in each of your assigned colors. (that's 2 yards total) Fabrics must be Kona Cotton by Robert Kaufman, and unwashed. So you will walk away with 112 charms in 56 different Kona Colors. You must think I am absolutely insane for sorting that many charms…and frankly I am :)

First off this swap will be hosted in FLICKR, so you must have a Flickr account to participate. If you don't have a Flickr account, its easy to set one up. There will be 3 steps in order to join this swap, so read carefully! 

Step 1 - Read completely through the swap rules here
Step 2 - Leave a comment on the rules post/discussion in flickr, letting me know that you agree to these Swap Rules.
Step 3 - Click on the SIGNUP button that is on the rules post/discussion to fill out the formal signup form.

*NOTE*- You must complete all three of these steps to be officially signed up for the swap. I will accept participants on a first come first serve basis and will try to keep the Participant Roster updated throughout the weekend.
