Details of swap:
Here we will be swapping craft supply items and crafts to each other. So many of us have tons and tons in our stashes and really want a place to share!! We are setting this up so as to organize personal swaps and give folks a forum to post thier haves and wants to swap with other members, make new friends and create!!

How it will work.......

1. Sign up by sending the questionairre over to me!
2. Once approved, post your "I have this" list, and your "Iwant this", list and what state and country you are from. Very important for those who want to send to the whole world, or just in their own area.
3. View the lists on the thread and PM the person with whom you would like to trade.
4. Once they agree, one of the two (decide in your PM's to each other) will send me who you are trading with and what you are trading.
5.Edit your list and take off, cross out, or add items. If you have 100 knitting needles and are only trading 2, then feel free to keep that item on your list until you do not want to swap it anymore. Only edit your list so that it is on the thread ONE TIME!!!
5. I will post trade partners and send out dates.
6. PM me with DC # once you have sent.
7. PM me once you have received from your partner.
8. Feedback will be left monthly for each participant and noted how many times they sent.

There will be a lot of PM communication on this swap, so keep it going between yourselves and just give me the final result of your communications! This is going to be FUN!!!

If you want to drop out at any time, then go ahead an delete your list! And PM me to let me know. Smiley Feel free to rejoin at anytime!

This will be an ongoing swap, and may change in terms of structure in order to  get it going smoothly. I will keep an ongoing list of who is trading with whom and the sendout deadlines. Feel free to PM if you have any suggestions! For now, let's try it an see how it goes!

"Toning" in the sense I've used it means colours that co-ordinate together - in other words if you asked me for blue shades I would try and find you a range that worked well together, not just 3 random bits of blue.  But of course if you want brightly contrasting fabrics, you only have to say so!

Ok I am having a dilema.  I want to join this swap.  But also want to join the my country doesn't have that swap.  Since this is my first swap I am only allowed one.  Trying to make a decision to which one.

Well, this one will be ongoing, so you can join anytime......but there are international swappers around too (Stephen) who you can swap with as well. Smiley

With this one, if you join and send out quickly, I can give you feedback once it is recieved. Because this swap is trading goodies, it is easy to fill a box and mail it within a day or so! Whatever you decide we hope to see you at some point!!!
