but sooner works, too
Limited to a certain number of people? No
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO***Everyone who signs up must be willing to send outside of their own country to participate in this swap. Since buttons are light-weight, postage shouldn't be that expensive. If possible, and if requested, organizer will try to match swappers with others in their own country but can't make any promises. So if you're not willing to ship to other countries, best to wait for another phase. Also, DC#s are not required for this swap, but it's a good idea to get a valid receipt showing you've sent in case there are any problems.***

This is just a warm up of sorts for the other phases of the Button Addicts swaps. In Phase 1, each swapper will send out ten buttons to 5 different people, with the option to send out 10 to 10. Fifty buttons will be sent in all, as well as 50 buttons received, unless you choose to send out to 10 different people, totaling 100 buttons. If you send vintage or older buttons, just be sure they aren't dirty or damaged; I've seen what sitting in a jar for years can do to a bunch of buttons. Also, buttons can be found just about anywhere. If you're new at collecting them, check craft stores, but also check out garage/estate sales, thrift stores, clothes. Keep in mind that no matter how hard some of them are to part with, you'll be getting "new" ones to add to your own collection. Other Phases to follow this swap are:
Phase 2 - Decorate a Button Jar or other container, and include a specified amount of buttons for one partner
Phase 3 - Swap button-created crafts with a partner, where buttons are the main focus
Phase 4 - Swap hand-made buttons with one partner
Each phase is a totally separate swap and will be treated as such. Signing up for one DOES NOT sign you up for all of them. Just because you do one, doesn't mean you have to do all four.If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:
