HI everyone,

I was wondering if there is an interest to start this kind of swap.

AUSSIE SWEATSHOP SAMPLER SWAP
This swap would give you the chance to make items you would like to offer and send, than recieve items back.
Participants could discuss what they would like to make or swap for in the thread than when we sign up nominate what you will be making and offering to send.

I would think you could nominate to either send to (5) five people or (10)people.

Items could vary from say 2 small to 1 medium. well made and presented. Items would say retail for around $10 but of course cost you a lot less to make.  Wink its a good way to show off samples of your products if you have a website, etsy shop, ebay shop or OZtion shop too.

Examples of what I mean:

  • handmade stuffies, amigurumi, sock monkeys, felted items, embroidered items
  • jewellery, bracelet/earing set, necklace/earing set, pendants in pouches, brooches, handmade beads, set of 2 barettes, hairpin sets of 6 pairs
  • packages of 2-3 handmade soaps, or a jar of hand and body scrub & or  a jar of lotion, potpouri, lavendar sachets, scented draw pillow, wardrobe scented hangers, lip balm, candles
  • wallet, pouches, crochet hook holder, pincushions, kanzashi, needle book, mini totes
  • hand dyed wool, pantas, crochet pouches, beanies, knitted items like scarves, mini totes
  • handmade paper journals, set of atc/decorated cards/gift labels, mini print/painting for wall, handmade magnets
  • mini diy kits eg scoubi pen kit, felted soap kit, embroidery diy kit, crochet panta kit, knitted scarf kit, lip balm or soap making kit

so there are lots of ideas and i would love to hear from other people.
Postage would be low as its australia post.
Is anyone else interested.
Say start crafting what you want to offer whilst sign ups are on, give 2 weeks to complete crafting and post out than.

Any takers?

sounds good! I'm just thinking about what I could offer.

off the top of my head, I can offer crocheted stuffies, knitted glasses cases, and maybe a granny square clutch? I have the details in my mind and it wouldn't be hard to make. But it all depends on demand lol.

I'd definitely be up to receiving homemade jewelerry (I'm addicted to it, so comfy and pretty!) and frankly anything else that comes my way!!

Hmm. I am tempted.
I am trying to get my stash down and this might be a good way...

I can make:
*Asian-style earrings with red and turquoise(very specific I know, but I have a lot of beads in these colours and a few earrings premade)
*Knitted character stuffies
*Fabric shopping/tote bags
*Bay leaf & spice sachets (like lavender sachets but more spicy and keeps moths away)

So we would be making enough of each item to be able to give them to 5 people? Is that right?

I am not sure I will be joining though as I may have to move to the country temporarily to mind my parents' place and a) dial-up internet  - URGH! and b) an unreliable post-office in their town.
