Very important!!
Since each yarnie(crocheter or knitter) must be matched with a sewist(seamstress or embroiderer), it is important than we have the same number of each participating.

I would like to thank alana1223 for organizing the original Fill A Coffee Cup/Mug Swap. I "borrowed" most of her rules & questionnaire for this swap.

Swap name:  Fill a "Coffee" Mug Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap:  brandyk
Sign-up date range:  12/26/14 - 1/9/15
Date to send item by:  1/31/15

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional):  24

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES

- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

This is a "Fill a Mug" Swap.  It can be items related to coffee, tea, cocoa, soup, anything that can be sipped, slurped, or gulped, out of a mug!  You can craft a mug, or not, it's up to you and your partner.  You can fill your mug with great drink related goodies!  Think of it like a Mug-Shaped Craftster version of a gift basket!  

Partners will send a mug filled with 1 medium & 1 small item (or 3 small items) and a mug rug. The mug rug & at least 1 other item must be crafted by you. Extras or minor adjustments to criteria may be discussed between partners.


This is a great way to try new things from other countries/locations. I encourage people to send locally made coffees/teas/items if they can.  There's plenty of stuff to send... maybe a hand made mug, a t-shirt or mug emblazoned with your favorite drink, craft supplies, recipe cards, maybe somehow incorporate it into jewelry... anything!

If you are sending within the U.S. a Delivery Confirmation (DC) is required! Everyone else, save your receipts for proof of sending!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

5  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello from Minnesota on: December 31, 2013 02:53:52 PM
Hi! I am happy to introduce myself. I am Brandy & am from Minnesota. Yes, it's very cold here right now. It's a perfect day for crafting!
I have been using Craftster for about 3 years to find (free) tutorials, etc, but just joined this lovly community today since I am going to make my first New Year's resolution in several years. I need some support, please. My resolution is to not buy any fabric until I use up most of my stash by making 12 baby/kid quilts (and anything else I decide I "need"). This should take me atleast until July 1. I have a stash of decorator fabric from making bags & purses....I'm not sure what to do about that fabric. I may need to buy some fabric for backings, but will try my best not to....my dream is to trade with someone for the backings if I run out of large enough pieces or if I need anything further.

My 12 quilts will be donated to local charities. My #1 thought is to donate them to Bundles of Love, a local non-profit that gives baby supplies to a new baby whose family has little resources when that baby leaves the hospital. I also may donate them to a battered women's shelter that is only a couple miles from my house & I drive past often.

Feel free to say "hi" and encourage me along my path! I'd be happy to encourage you with any craft resolutions too  Smiley Or let me know if you want to swap.
