What is an FB? What does FB stand for?

@MiniQuilt - at the bottom of the page is a "Glossary" click on it and there's a great explaniation of FB's there.

FB's only or are sheets and/or crams included too?

@MiniQuilt - Friendship Book (FB) – A booklet that is passed via the mail from person to person. It includes addresses of all the signers and is intended for the recipient to find new penpals and/or swap partners. It is generally made of a few pages of paper (any size, but usually made to fit in a standard size envelope) stapled together. The cover or front page includes who made the booklet (complete with name and address) and who the booklet was made for (complete with name and address). The rest of the booklet is reserved for the “signers.” The person who signs the last available space then sends the booklet back home to the person the booklet was made for.

Many Many thanks to @institches and @tamitam55 for stepping in and answering the questions- I haven't had access to swap bot for a few days so I really appreciate you guys jumping in!

@institches I would say just FBs, because your partner may be picky. If you have excess crams/sheets, feel free to message your partner and see if that's okay with them

I am brand spanking new and don't have anyone to make FB for. Is it weird that I'll have to make them for myself this round?

HeidiJean 01/ 5/2015 #

@labrat not at all-- plenty of people make FBs "for and by" themselves. If you're new to swapping FBs, and would like to set up a private swap, PM me. we could arrange something where I send you FBs, and you could send me something simple in return :)
