Thank you loves2experiments for the original swap! I hope I didn't miss anything important for the swap...

Swap name: Ongoing Fabric Swap 5

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.  The more the merrier!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Absolutely!

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:

- Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES


DETAILS OF SWAP:


If youve got stashes of fabric hidden in your craft boxes, this is the swap for you.
This round will be taking place throughout March!

For each claim, you will get to select a total of 1/2 yard of fabric (in the form of two (2) fat quarters OR a half yard piece).  In return, you will then be required to make a post with a minimum of eight fabric swatches that you have available for someone else to claim.   

Ready to play?  Please read the following sections on 'HOW TO PLAY' and 'RULES' for this swap before signing up to get approved for this swap!



HOW TO PLAY:

Step 1.  Send in your answers to the swap questionnaire to get approved for this swap

Step 2.  Prepare your lists of fabric swatches so that youll be ready to post the list when you make a claim!  Youll need a minimum of eight fabric swatches!!!  Along with the pictures, you should describe the type and clearly specify the quantity of fabric that youre offering!  For example:

1.   Brown and Turquoise Cotton Batik.  1/2 Yard Piece.
2.   Lime Green Silk.  Fat Quarter.
3.   Purple Cotton/Polyester Blend.  Fat Quarter or 1/2 Yard Piece.
4.   Fun Fur Type Fabric.  Fat Quarter.
5.   Silver Vinyl.  Fat Quarter.
6.   Vintage Japanese Kimono.  Fat Quarter.
7.   Pink Cotton Flannel.  1/2 Yard Piece.
8.   Yellow Wool Felt.  Fat Quarter or 1/2 Yard Piece.

Step 3.  Watch the swap thread for something youll like to claim.  To claim, post a reply along the lines of I claim swatches #2 and #6 from groschveuxs stash.  Follow-up by sending a pm to the person you chose from.  Let her know what youve selected and provide her with your name and mailing address. 

Step 4.  Now that youve made a claim, its your turn to post your list of fabric swatches!  If the thread idles for a couple of hoursor days, please take the initiative to add more selections to your list!  When someone chooses from your list, you have seven (7) days to get the swap package out the door!

Step 5.  If you have not maxed out on the number of claims you have been approved for, you make keep on claiming.  If you have reached your limit, you will not be able to make another claim until one of your partners has received a swap package from you.

*The amount of outstanding claims you are allowed is based on your craftster and swapping status. New swappers get one claim, non-FOCs get 2 claims and FOCs get 3 claims.


RULES:

1.  You may not participate in this swap until you have been pre-approved by the swap organizer.  Please wait until youre listed on the List of Approved Swappers before making a claim!  If youre watching this swap thread and thinking about participating, youre more than welcome to pm me to get pre-approved.  By doing so, youll be ready to make a claim when you see something you like

2.  You must have ready access to a camera and know how to post pictures in the swap thread.  Please make sure you have your list (either links or pictures) of fabrics available when you start swapping!  You will need to have a minimum of eight fabric swatches in your posts. You may also choose the option of posting links to your fabric swatches.  If you do that, please make sure that your links work!

3.  All participants must be willing to ship to international destinations.  Since were only sending a total of 1/2 yard of fabric, shipping costs should be pretty reasonable.
 
4.  After a claim has been made, you have seven (7) days to mail your package!  Check out the second post of this swap thread to get an idea of when your swap packages are due.

5. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States.  I'm will be pretty firm about this rule!  If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner(s) and the organizer (that would be me, groschveux)! 

6.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  When you have received, please remember to inform your partner and the organizer!  If you are late, you need to pm your partner and the swap organizer ASAP.  You are still responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!  A blatant disregard for deadlines will result in a "sent late" comment in your swap profile.

7. Okay.  This is not really a rule, but rather a request.  Please make sure to list fabrics that you would be pleased to receive.  Its common sense, really!


If that sounds good to you and you want to participate, send the following information to the organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap: Ongoing Fabric Swap 5
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your full real name and mailing address:
Have you read the rules for this swap and understood how this swap works? 
How many fabric swatches will you be required to showcase when you make a claim?
Do you promise to communicate with your partner(s) and the organizer when you send, recieve or are late?



IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO THE ORGANIZER (me!) VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.
Also remember to consult the Swap Info Guide and Swap Etiquette to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I'm not claiming.  I just wanted to tell Nix that the tote I currently carry is made from the pink/orange/yellow swirly flowers on black Smiley  Nice choice!
