5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Rainbow of Fabric Swap on: March 29, 2012 01:20:52 AM

Do you want a FABRIC RAINBOW to arrive in your mail box?

Would anyone be interested in doing a fabric supply swap. Where you would swap 7 pieces of fabric with one or two partners?

I was thinking the size of the fabric could be fat 1/8th (9in x 22in), Layer Cake (10in square) or Charm Square (5in square) in size, depending on what people want.

We could send 1 or 2 different pieces for each colour (7 colours in total: Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet)

In the questionnaire you could specify whether you would be happy or not to receive prints/florals/solids/batiks/etc.

You could do a little stash busting..... Wink

They could be used together to make a small project, some TM squares, or simply add to your pretty collection...I'm sure there are a ton of different ideas out there.

We could also send along a small crafted item, based on your partners Pinterest/Wist if people would like?

Either way, I'm thinking a low-stress swap Cheesy

Let me know what you think Craftsters of the World! xoxo

I'll leave you with some RAINBOWY GOODNESS Grin

Details of swap:
The first Make My Collectible swap was so successful we have decided to get stuck right in to Round 2!! I have enlisted the help of the lovely skittlebub to co-org so we will have the opportunity to have DOUBLE the amount of participants!

For this swap we will be in groups of 4, where we will make 3 small crafted items, 1 for each of your group members. The send out date will be March 24, 2012, regardless of when sign ups close.

You will list 3 options of things you collect and your partners will choose ONE from this list which item they would like to craft for you. (*You may receive one of each collectable in your list, or three of one collectible - this will depend on your partners, and is part of the surprise for you Cheesy )

In your questionnaire you may list crafts you admire and would like to receive but this is not guaranteed. Please take note of your partners dislikes when you receive your questionnaires as to not disappoint anyone.

If we have an uneven amount of swappers, we will have one group work in a round robin style.

Please note sign-ups for this swap will close once all spots are filled - Round 1 filled in ONE DAY so I suggest you get in quickly to avoid disappointment Wink

A small item, as defined by Craftster, is:

When you have sent your package, please PM your group organiser ASAP so the sent/received list can be updated. Please don't forget to take pictures of what you send and although it isn't a requirement for positive feedback on Craftster it would be much appreciated if you could post pictures of what you receive in our gallery. If you are unable to do so, please contact your partners and make arrangements.

8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make My Collectible 2 on: February 13, 2012 03:23:58 AM
Just putting the word out there that there will probably be a Round 2 of the super popular MMC swap starting soon.

If I can get a co-org we can open it up to more swappers, it's just quite tricky to manage anything more than 24 swappers alone as everyone sends/receives 3 packages Tongue

Check out the gallery for Round 1 if you haven't already, there are some amazing collectibles in there Cheesy

Hope to see you there Smiley
