I'm thinking of organizing another Givers/needers swap after the holidays. I believe it's been a while since the last swap was done. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=391396.0
this is a link to round 10 which can give more information about the swap for those who aren't familiar with it. Basically you sign up as either a giver, a needer or both. when filling out the questionaire you write what supplies you can give (ie fabric, paint, clay etc..), how many packages you could send, or the craft supplies you are in need of. The giver mails their unneeded supplies to the needer, and the needer sends a thankyou package in the form of a craft. The thankyou craft requirement is 1 small item, though you could craft bigger if you'd like to.
If noone is offering the craft supplies you need, you will be informed so you can possibly expand on your list of wanted supplies. for this swap, first time swappers can be givers, but needers must have completed at least one swap before this one. There will be two send out dates, one for the givers and another, a couple weeks, later for the needers to send their thankyous.
I will start this swap right after new years if there is interest, I think with the holidays so close it makes sense to wait until afterwards so people aren't so busy. If you're interested you should go through your stash now and set aside anything you can offer so writing the questionnaire will be quick and nothing will be forgotten.
I might also need a co-organizer so if anyone is interested please let me know...it's ok if you have never done it before I don't mind helping you get the hang of things. This swap tends to get kinda hectic so it would really be appreciated
