DETAILS OF SWAP
This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You can sign up as a spinner or crafter.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

If there are more crafters than spinners, spinners who have successfully completed one swap my take on 2 partners.

Additional Rules:
1. If this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. Please create a parcel that you would like to receive. Do some research on your partner. Good communication is really important to keep everyone informed and happy.

3.  Please bookmark this thread and/or post here. All updates will be made here and this will help you to keep up with everything.


4. Please put "Handspun & Handcrafts Swap 4" in the title of PM's.
   Make sure to PM maiziemama when a package is sent/received.

5. Please post in this thread once a week! This is to insure good communication.

4  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Spinning stuff from Africa! on: March 16, 2008 02:20:01 PM
My hubby just got back from a business trip in Mali, West Africa, and brought me home the best gifts!!!

He brought some traditional spindles, made of clay and bamboo.



They are bottom whorl, supported spindles, the women use a bowl to spin them like a top.

and the most amazing bogolon (mud cloth) weaving, depicting a woman spinning!!  I love it sooo much.




Plus he brought back some Malian cotton for me to practice with!!

Definetely the coolest souvenier package ever!

What constitutes a large, medium or small item:  Think of a timeline, a large item is time consuming like a set of 4 placemats or a super cool apron, medium item could be a pair of oven mitts  - smalls could be potholders, hotpads, coasters or dishcloths things that aren't quite so time and cost intensive.  Most of all, communicate with your partner!

1) Good communication!  Swappers must post at least 2 times to board during crafting time...just so we know you are around and thinking about this swap!!

ATTENTION:
I WILL NOT TOLERATE NON COMMUNICATION OR FLAKING! YOU MUST PROVIDE A DC NUMBER WHEN YOU MAIL OUT IF WITHIN THE US.  IF NOT, THE CUSTOMS NUMBER OFF THE RECEIPT OR PROOF OF MAIL OUT!  COMMUNICATE! 

Feedback will be given in the following manner:
1) Positive: Great Swapper, Great communications: there were no problems whatsoever.
2) Positive: Sent Early: obvious
3) Positive: Sent Late with Great Communication: You told me you were going to send late before or on the date of send outs. (i didnt have to hunt you down)
4) Positive: Sent Late with Bad Communication: You didnt tell me you were going to send late until the day after the send outs or after that or i had to hunt you down.
5) Positive: No DCN or Proof of mailout: obvious
6) Positive: Great swapper, problems with communications: you did great swapping but didnt PM me when you mailed out and/or recieved
7) Flaked - gets negative feedback.

Rules:
1. Craftsters MUST communicate with each other - at least in the beginning to acknowledge their partners, and at the end to reassure them that their packages are on the way. If you think you're having trouble, or are unsure, PM ME!!!

2. Also I need you to PM me when you send your pacakge and when you receive your yours.

3. If you're going to be late in sending, or are having any trouble at all, please let me know.. .. .be nice to your fellow Craftster, and keep them aware of your situation.  We all have lives outside of our craftroom and are pretty forgiving!

4. If you've never swapped before, please read the Swaps Info Guide.

5.  Please post up pics in the gallery take pics before you send out if you can just in case a.)  package lost in transit and b.) your swap partner doesnt have access to a camera. Please let me know ahead of time if you do not have access to a camera.  I will try to not put two cameraless people together we all LOVE seeing what everyone gets!

6.  Thoughts on shipping - I am a stickler for proof of sending. If you are in the US - you MUST get a dc #.  If you are in the US and are sending outside the country - you MUST send me your customs number.  If you are outside the US - and you get a customs number send it along but please keep your receipt!!  You don't need to scan and send it to me unless it goes MIA which I really hope won't happen during our swap!

Details of swap:

This is the 1st Magic Roving Ball Swap!!  Weve all heard of the ever popular Magic Yarn Ball swaps, right?  This is the same idea, but for spinners and felters and all lovers of fiber! This means that you wind the roving into a ball yourself, hiding little trinkets and treats inside the ball as you go.  Some ideas already suggested include tiny toys; candy; crafting supplies; jewelry; hairthings. Since this swap is geared towards spinners and felters, it would be nice to include little goodies that are aimed towards these craftssome ideas might be: beads and threads that could be spun into designer yarns, handspun yarn, felting needles etc.  Get creative! 

There is a great thread about great online sources for roving on the spinning board http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70992.0

Since we're all crafty people, it goes without saying that we should craft some of the treats ourselves. I suggest, as a guideline, 10-15 things in the yarn ball and 2-3 of them be small crafts made by yourself. Feel free to exceed these guidelines (though, as with all swaps, don't go too overboard), and check out the Magic Yarn Ball galleries for inspiration. If you spend more money or time on some things, they might count for a little more, but since the point of this swap is to have lots and lots of tiny items for itty-bitty doses of joy, it's more in keeping with the spirit of the swap to make things small and have more of them.

We will be swapping a minimum of 4 oz of roving. However, there is a question on the sign-up questionnaire about whether you are willing or interested in swapping for more. If this interests you, give a range of how much roving you want to swap. and I'll do my best to match people up by that.



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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
