3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Make-a-Friend Swap....? on: February 22, 2013 12:11:54 PM
Hi everyone! This is DesignVigilante! I changed my username recently and wanted to make sure there was no confusion before I start this discussion. Smiley

I've been running the Make-a-Friend Swap at least once a year for the last 4 years or so. I've finally come to a point in my life where I haven't had much time to swap. A lot of things have happened in the last year for me and if all goes according to plan this year will be even more eventful than last. In short, I won't be able to organize the Make-a-Friend Swaps anymore but do not want to see it fade away. Therefore I'm hoping to pass the torch on to someone else. I'm willing to give said person all of my organizational tools that I've used for this swap over the years and any advice they may need. I really want this swap to continue and if you are interested in taking over please PM me.

If you're not interested in organizing but want to participate in future Make-a-Friend Swaps please show your support here! Thanks, friends Grin
4  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Plying on a Drop Spindle Question on: July 05, 2012 08:11:40 PM
So I'm plying on a drop spindle for the very first time (I should emphasize that I only spin on drop spindles, I do not have a wheel at all) and I'm getting to a certain point where the spindle is very heavy and difficult to get going. I'm probably a little less than halfway through and I really don't want to break the yarn and wind off even though that seems to be the only solution to me. I just wanted to see if anyone else had any other ideas before I broke the yarn. Thanks! Smiley
