Swap name: Ongoing Offer What You Have (Crafts or Supplies) Swap

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Miss Violaceous

Swap runs: May 2 through May 31

Details:
If you a) have crafts lying around that you've made
    or  b) enjoy making things for other people
    or  c) want to de-stash supplies
...then this swap is for you! To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

To join, first PM the organizer with your application. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something and post your list.

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month.

Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  

New swappers are allowed to have one claim outstanding at any time, Friend of Craftster's get 3 claims and everyone else gets 2 claims. A claim is "outstanding" from the time you post about it to the time your partner receives it.

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country if necessary.

If the swap stalls (no one claims for several days while your list is up) you should add more items or consider combining smaller items into one package. Check out the first round and the second round and the third round and the fourth round if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It was typically in the $5-$15 range, from a half a yard to a couple yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, crafted accessories, grab bags of yarn, beads, buttons and notions, things of that nature.

Swap Organizer meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES


Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES


Format:

I'm Miss Violaceous, and having been PM'd by the organizer to say I am approved I would like to claim rosali for a knitted cuff. This is my second claim. My list:
-A yard of pink corduroy fabric *add picture here*
-10 x zippers *add picture here*
-1/2 yd blue cotton puppy fabric and 1/2 yd yellow cotton puppy fabric *add picture here*
- 4 x batik FQs *add picture here*
- 2 skeins of green red heart yarn *add picture here*

Then the next person posts...

I'm the craftster admin (Leah) and having been PM'd by the organizer to say I am approved I would like to claim Miss Violaceous for 4 x batik FQs. This is my third claim. My list:
-A lined zippered makeup bag
-A fabric covered journal
-Set of 3 felt flower brooches
-Crochet hook/knitting needle roll-up
-Polymer clay pendant
Here are some photos of things I've made: *add links here*


Those of you who have followed my other swap postings know that I'm kind of a hardass about pictures and such, but this swap is a little different. It is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so pictures aren't crucial. However, DC numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts. I will be giving feedback in the following way:
-  good/poor communication:  where applicable
-  sent late: more than a week late
-  no dc number: failed to comply with the rule about using a delivery confirmation number for packages within your own country


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer Miss Violaceous by private message:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
-Name of swap:
-Craftster username:
-Email address:
-Your real name:
-Mailing address:
-Are you a Friend of Craftster or have you been a swap angel (with proof in profile)?:
-Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have readymade or details of supplies you wish to offer):


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I am jloveg I have been approved and  would  like to make  first  claim this  MAY on
atsuko  for  GOD BLESS AMERICA fabric.

I have to  offer    pick  any 2 yards!!





This is a  light  lavender color in life..


This is  black velvet feeling  stuff

And  have  chocolate  colored  also   both  photos  here




This  is  actually RED  t-shirt  material  photo  doesnt  show   true  color  sorry


This  is a  blue  stretchy textured velvety  type..  maybe  used  for a dance costume???


Plastic hearts and  stencils to create  flowers and  butter flies if I remember  right.
No stamps  just  stencils



Yellow somewhat sheer  not  much more  I know  about it.


pick 2 spools   inside label  says SOFT TEXTURED POLYESTER


or here are  several photos of one large lot of kanzashi petals   after separating and sorting  I have  counted a minimum of 70 sets of  petals but there was a few  more than that I know.
wide variety of colors and sizes....some odd folded just for a  different look  some large some tiny mostly medium  sized .....  90% or more  are already stiffened  also.  ready to be assembled.
here is a  shot of almost all (still sorting)  sorry  photos  are  not  great. if  you want  better  ones  let me know I will try  to get  better  shots


here are  some  closer  shots of  them




and I figured out there is more than  enough for at least 70 flowers.
