Building a bundle

IBOL3D isn’t set to kick off until either late spring or early summer in 2011.  So, hang in there.

To participate:

1. Leave a comment on this site — anywhere on this site. I will email you a hearty thanks, and the mail address.  It’s an APO address, so it’s the same postal rate as mailing something to NY, NY.

2. Go to the post office and get yourself one of the large, flat rate to APO boxes.  It’s a good sizes box, and it’s going to be $12.50 to mail (apparently, the price went up).  Really, you can use whatever box you want, but I recommend these since they are a price-performer.

3. Form the box, tape one end close.  Put it on the floor or table.

4. Lay some ribbon (or similar) across the boxes across both axis – left to right, and front to back.  It should look like a + across the box.  This will tie your bundle close in the end.

5. Find a nice piece of fabric, large enough, and lay it into the box.  This is the outer layer of your bundle.  It can be one big piece, round or square, or two long and wide strips put into the box in the same manner as the ribbon.

6. Now, add the goodies.  Doing this right into the box, on top of this outer layer, means you should have a pretty good idea of just how full the box is.  Add a little, add a lot — add whatever you want.

7. Fold the outer layer over the top.

8. Bring those ribbons together on top.  Check and make sure all the goodies are secured inside the little bundle of love, and then tie it close.

9. Tape the box sealed, fill out the address label.  Feel free to get creative, and doodle on the sides.  Grab your $12.50!

10.  Head to the post office, fill out a big, white Customs form, and send it on its way.

    [...] I have added two sections today — a frequently asked questions (FAQ) section, and a piece on how to build a bundle.  I also added the basics of the About Me page, but it’s pretty [...]

      Please send me the address. I don’t have money but I do have sewing supplies.

    • Leonna Says:

      OK, I’m in. Where do I send my bundle?
      Love the cat, by the way. And the “cat trap” picture set me laughing hysterically.

    • Michelle Says:

      Please send your address. What a great excuse to clean out the supply closet! Good work. Thanks for your servant heart.

      • Sallie Lloyd Says:

        Please send your address. I am a quilter addicted to collecting fabric, and have way more than I need to keep! I would love to send you some of my fabrics, as well as a large wedding ring quilt top that has all the cross stitching done on it, but it needs to be quilted. Do you want batting and backing fabric as well? Thanks for your great work in helping others to help themselves!

    • Nicole Says:

      Please send the address. Lots of inherited fabric coming your way.

    • Carolyn Says:

      Ok I can’t delay anymore or I’m going to be one of “those” people that think about missing the deadline in the middle of the night…

      Thank you!!

    • Deb Says:

      Not the biggest computer nerd, so I had a bit of trouble figuring out HOW to comment – but no problem figuring out the bundles – awesome idea – I’ll be sending several!

    • Jenny Says:

    • Tracy L Burgess Says:

      Perfect timing as I’m going through my fabric stash. You said on FB that as long as it’s in the mail by Tuesday, Sept. 8th that will work?
      Thanks for arranging all this,
      Tracy

    • Betty Baker Says:

      Will be adding to my blog and am blasting an email to both West Houston Quilters Guild and Quilt Guild of Greater Houston (about 600 members total). Please send address. (Is it OK to forward your address directly if I don’t post it on website?)

    • Michelle Says:

      Just a couple days left till Sept. 7th, but I just heard about this project. I’d love to send a bundle if it’s not too late. Where do I send it?

    • Susan Oates Says:

      Hi! An acquaintance recently moved and gave me some of her yarn stash to use for charity projects. I’d like to send them on to you – some are blends of natural and artificial fibers while others are totally natural, wool or cotton.

      Interested?

  3. Mary Says:

    I’m in. Send me your APO and I’ll send one or more bundles. Are there specific colors that might be better than others? I’m pretty sure no fabric should have images of animals or people–is that correct?

    Thanks for doing this

I am not posting the mail address to the web, and am asking other to not post it, either (since this whole thing ends in September, and I leave Iraq not long after that). I completely do support you sharing it with your friends and family and guild and others, via email, etc. — just remind them about the 7 Sept. deadline for getting boxes into the mail, and pass to them the information on how to build a bundle.

  98. Michele Says:

    I can fill a few boxes. Send me the APO address. What a great idea. Most quilters have more fabric than they can ever use. I have a son in Iraq in IZ III. I would love to send out some fabric for the people over there to use. Thank you for giving us a way to show the Iraq people we care.

  99. janet Says:

    What a great thing you are doing…please send the address as I would be delighted to share. Greater than 20 years ago I had a pen pal in Yugoslavia who had No access to any things quilty, I shared as much as I could and she shared down the line and many new quilters came of that exchange. It will be so nice to be a tiny part of that process again. May we include address information, obviously NOT for any acknowledgment, but in the hope of starting new friendships?

    The purpose of life is not to possess but to create.

    I came across your blog this morning during my morning commute on the train to Seattle. I have been truly blessed with an abundance of fabric and quilting things in my life, more than I can possibly use. I enjoyed reading the comments from everyone and my heart was touched. I was feeling very emotional about this whole thing! Upon our arrival at the train station, I was gathering up my things and glanced at the book that the woman across from me was putting away in her bag. The book was Three Cups of Tea. A coincidence? I think not. Moments like this are a treasure to me! Please send me the mailing address! I can’t wait to share the wealth.

    Having lived 23 years in foreign countries and now a retiree learning to quilt, I can appreciate how much what you are doing will boost the moral of the Iraqi women. Some friends and I started a sewing group in the last third world country I lived is and bought cutting mats, roller cutters, scissors and yards of fabric for the ladies there. Some were very interested in my cross stitch projects so got them started in that. Even bought drug store glasses for those who needed glasses to see to do the work but would never be able to afford an eye check let alone glasses. We’d get together in my home and what wonderful times we had. In a place where so little seems like so much, I applaud you for your efforts and for that of all those who are taking a little bit of their things to send. Scissors are huge! Now PLEASE send your address so I can get this in the mail!!! Can’t seem to find it anywhere. All the best, Sue

    Several of us at work are sending boxes. Can you send the address? I’m assuming that you are still taking boxes up until the 7th of September?

  451. Mary Lou Noble Says:

    Does it have to be a large box? The kit I got only has small and medium. I have to mail it tomorrow.

  452. Bridget Wideman Says:

    I love it when I can cram a ton of stuff into a flat-rate box….it’s nice and heavy too :) This was so much fun! I needed to sort and get rid of some stuff I don’t/won’t use. I used to use a genearl all-purpose thread, but since I’m a quilter now I only use “good” quilting thread; so, I had LOTS to give. My crochet days are behind me, so I no longer need all those crochet hooks. I crammed as much yarn in as I could, but mainly I wanted to pile up on the fabric (just like every other quilter in the US, I have more fabric that I could ever possibly use in a lifetime). I also seem to have two of everything in the notions department, so it was great that I had so much to give. An added bonus for me is that when and if my house ever sells, we will hopefully move to a house that’s half the size. This house is too much for us to take care of now that we’re no longer in our 20’s or 30’s…so, I have to part with stuff sooner or later! And I don’t do garage sales, so whenever I have things I no longer want/need, I donate them. This is a fun way to donate! I wish it were an on-going project (I’m keeping my eye on that possibility). My box is ready to go to the Post Office when do my errands today…I do still have that stupid customs form to fill out! There is no way I can list every item, but I certainly don’t want it to be held up in customs! I would think that since it’s going to our military they would have a special US MILITARY EZ FORM to fill out. My name and address, recipients name and address and a general statement on the contents with no dollar amount (misc. sewing/quilting/crochet stuff; the kind of stuff a wife sends to a hubby in the service; misc. stuff from so-and-sos mom, etc. MISC STUFF should be sufficient!

    Well, I should go start filling out that form….lets see now…. 348 1″ small head stainless steel straight pins in a 1.5″x1.5″ acrylic box with a rubber band tied around the box, 2 chalk-based marking pencils (one black, one white) that are approximately 7″ long and have the leads sharpened to 1/4″, a 3 yard by 42″ piece of 100% cotton fabric with muted stripes in shades of blue and gray, an 8″ pair of dressmaker shears packed in a papertowel tube so as not to poke anyone, a 2000 yard cone (made of heavy cardboard) wrapped with 100% cotton yard, ecru in color, etc. etc. etc. Guess I’ll have to attach 2 or 3 typewritten pages in order to fully describe each item! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have fun! I’m sure having fun with this. I only wish I’d have heard about it sooner so I could have done more. Then again, being the optimist that I am (yea, right), I’m really glad I wasn’t too late and I DID hear about it in time.

    Thank you! God Bless You! Take Care and BE SAFE!

  453. Carol Bass Says:

    Would love to join your efforts. Please send address. Have the box out on the table ready to fill.

    Much aloha,

  458. Ric Sanderson Says:

    I no longer make clothes, quilts, etc. . . . .limit myself to keeping the buttons on and rips sewed . . . .but have a lot of miscellaneous left-overs and I’ve been wondering where I can “recycle” them. This sounds like a good idea. I lived for a while in Thailand and in Pakistan, and know how people with limited resources can and will make good use of what we in the USA usually throw out. Send me the address and I’ll send you an IBOL. Nice going! People like you make a difference!

  459. Julia Says:

    Do you have to “bundlea” the fabric? I already sealed a box (I can open it if needed, but just packed it as full as i could) and sill have another one to seal up that I will do the correct way.

    I think I have the web address, but it looks short, so please send it to me.

  471. Susy McQueen Says:

    Please send address Asap! I just read the email from Karey Bresenham. I have some fabric to send.

    Thanks!

  472. Maria Says:

    Hello. What a great way to share some lovely fabric with someone who will appreciate it.

  473. Dorothy Ferguson Says:

    GREAT IDEA !
    Sending an IBOL with Aloha from Hawaii

  474. Rebecca Says:

    Hello,
    I’m interested in taking part. Please send me the address and I’ll get my bundle in the mail.

  475. Kathy Fay Says:

    Aloha – I’d love to contribute and make room in my closet at the same time. Please send me the address and the bundle will be in the mail tomorrow.

  476. Carolyn Nakasato Says:

    Please email the address so i can be a part of this wonderful idea!

  477. Chriss Wilson Says:

    I have to divest myself of a stash! Send me the email and I can get it out today if it is not too late!
    Awesome idea.

  478. Carole Rowan Says:

    I need the address to send my bundle

    Thank you

  479. Annie Rasmussen Says:

    Address, please!

  480. TS Little Says:

    Do we fill out a customs form at the Post Office? And do we add “IRAQ” on the bottom of the APO address you sent us?

  481. Rhoda James Says:

    Send me the address

  482. Jane Hall Says:

    Please send me the APO address…I think this is a super idea!

  483. Jane Hall Says:

    Another comment…the form is hard to understand. Do we weigh the fabric, thread, etc, on each line? Thanks, Jane Hall

  484. Shiadani Resendiz Says:

    I’m 11 years old. You are doing a good thing.

  485. Esther Wiebke Says:

    I have a box ready to go. I do need the address to send it to. Are small packages of M&Ms ok to enclose? Individually wrapped hard candy? As long as it is one price, might just as well fill the “little spaces.

    Esther

  486. Meysha Says:

    Address please! I have tons of fabric that I’d like to share!

  487. Meysha Says:

    Address please! I have tons of fabric that I’d like to share! Now to clean the closet!

  488. Kalona Says:

    What a great idea! I would like to send a box from Hawaii. This is the aloha spirit, and this is how we can reach out to other people and become harmonious in this world.

  489. Patsy Bighinatti Says:

    My sister forwarded this to me today, Sept. 5th. There is not time for me to get a box, fill it, and mail it by Sept. 7th. Surely, they would like to receive bundles after Ramadan is over? Also, I thought Ramadan was ending this week.

    Would appreciate receiving the address. Is there some reason that the address could not have been already included in the information provided about making the bundles? It would have facilitated people getting them off in a hurry.

    Thank you for what you are doing.

  490. Stacia DeBill Says:

    I missed the post office by 15 min. Monday the 7th is Labor Day. If a package is mailed early on the 8th, will it be too late?

  491. Peggy Yamamoto Says:

    Wish I had heard about this sooner! I have lots to share – please send address.

  492. Sari Lynn Says:

    Please send me the address. Thanks for coordinating this!

  493. Wendy Malepeai Says:

    What a great idea! I would like to send a bundle, but our mail doesn’t go out until Thursday, Sept. 10 from Am. Samoa. Please send the address if you think I could still contribute.
    I wondered if anyone else stationed there might take up this project when you leave?
    Or a local sewing club person?
    Thank you for reaching out.

  497. Emily Says:

    please send me the address i can’t wait to pack and get it sent out on tuesday (no post offices open on monday)

  498. Mary Farkash Says:

    Please send the address for Iraqi bundles of love. I have been holding onto this fabric knowing that somewhere in this world it should be made into quilts for those whose need is greater. Thank you so much for this loving effort!

  499. Tammy Says:

    This is last minute…but I can still meet the deadline. Please send me the address. Thank you for doing this.

  500. malia Says:

  516. Jane Warner Says:

    Will you be starting this program again? I read the article in the Columbus Dispatch and understand it will be starting again? I have copied the article and handed it out to quilt shops in Tennessee on a recent trip. Please inform.

  517. IBOL Guy Says:

    Well, I have found one guy who is moving to Northern Iraq right about now, and he’s checking to see if they can try something like this. Yes, he’s the guy from the Columbus newspaper article — his mom is an IBOLer (I just love saying that). And me, well, I flew back to America last night, from 2 weeks in Iraq. Yes, I, too, am headed back for one last year in Iraq. I have no idea if I can try something like IBOL again this time around. I’m trying to figure something out.

  518. Edwina J Muray Says:

    I wrote and you sent the address and it has disappeared from my mailbox. I have people waiting to do this so please send your address again.

    This is such a wonderful idea. Thanks so much for all your great work.

  519. Ruth A. Smith Says:

    We congratulate you on your service to our country and for helping the Iraqi people as well.

      • IBOL Guy Says:

        Marsha, you can use whatever box yo want. I advocate the flat rate ones, as they are cheap and easy. Also, in the FAQ, I have a link on where to go online to order them; USPS will deliver them to your house, even.

  562. Jessica Says:

    I have some supplies I’d like to donate.

    thanks, Jessica

    • IBOL Guy Says:

      Canada is OK with me, You’re good. Intent is to get stuff into the mail about the same time — there are so many other variables after that, well, that starting in Canada shouldn’t impact things much.

  612. Carolyn Says:

    I have two packages ready to ship once I have the address. Thanks.

  613. Edwina J Murray Says:

    Just a word of caution about strange or different emails. I just received an email on an account I use very seldom, and it is not connected at all with IBOL. It said that a package I had just sent could not be sent because of a mistake in the address. And on a different date from when I went to post office. Of course, I was eager to open it and it didnt work. So I called the post office. They told me they would never send an email about a package. And furthermore there was nothing on the customs form or my package to indicate my email address…gee I knew that and wondered about it! but still called to check.

    Since the IBOL packages are the only thing I have sent through the USPS in a long time…I was curious as to what had gone wrong or I would have deleted it immediately. So long story, a little shorter…check those messages before opening them! My is deleted and hopefully did no damage!

    • IBOL Guy Says:

      Edwina, thanks for the note. I’ve not heard of this happening to others, but it’s a good thing to be attentive to. I have just the one email, so if there’s no email from the USPS about packages, and it’s not from my one email account — yes, be wary!

  614. Sharon Says:

    I’ll get some boxes packed and out the door by Oct 1 – Please email me the address.Thanks!

    Hi I have 7 bundles ready to go. please email me the address!!

    Thanks!

  616. andreaj Says:

    please send the address – I know tomorrow is Oct. 1 but I can get a package in the mail by then.

  617. Donna Says:

    I am late! I’d like the address in the event that you’re going to continue this project. I have a lot of fabric and notions to share.

  618. Gayle Says:

    Please let me know when this starts up again; I cannot believe I didn’t find it until after the deadline. I have sewing, knitting, and embroidery supplies to send. Would patterns be something needed, too? I know lots of people (myself included) don’t even usually use the instruction sheets, just use the pattern pieces for the shape of the garment and use their own knowledge to construct. I have for men, women, and children, as well as household items.
    Also, is there any talk of something similar starting up in Afghanistan? My husband is a logistician currently in country, and I’ve been looking for a good charity over there to get myself and my children involved in. If there isn’t, and you can provide me with any information on possibly getting started over there, it would be appreciated greatly.

  619. melanie Says:

    Don’t know why IBOL popped into my head tonight, but I’m glad it did. Stay safe overseas, my friend.

    I’m so sorry to hear about the PTSD. I have it as well. I was assaulted when I was little and testified about it. For decades I thought I had RPD (Rotten Personality Disorder) only to discover, in my late 40s, that it was an almost lifelong case of PTSD. So it goes. . .

    I’ll keep an eye on the blog. Meanwhile, please send me the address for IBOL3D and I’ll start getting ready. I don’t know if I can muster another 19 boxes of fabric, but I am clearing out my Mom’s knitting and crochet stockpile. . .

    sending fondness to you and yours,
    Melanie

    How many bundles can I send?

    God Bless you.
