Oh, lightbulb moment!

Why don't you pair everyone up and have the pairs craft for each other, but ALSO have everyone involved in the swap send you one of those manila envelopes full of handcrafted goodies? It seems way easier than having to worry about money orders and whatever, and it's like christmas in the middle of summer for you!

I too second this, this sounds like a great idea!

Hey, guys-
I'm in the process of making groups of fabric for the swap.
So far themes include:
Really cute
70's sheets
fabrics which are fuzzy
heavy/upholstery fabric

anyone have suggestions/requests for other bundles?  Colors?  Themes?  I could probably swing almost anything.

I expect to start the signup thread in the next couple of days.

As for sending me envelopes full of goodies... I do love the goodies, but I'm doing this with the intention of clearing space in the apartment, so it would be a little counterproductive.

How I expect shipping to work:
The post office has these wonderful Priority Mail Flat Rate boxes.  $8.95 for as much stuff as you can put in the box, shipped anywhere in the US.  I'm making packages that fit in these boxes.  I will mail them out and provide Delivery Conf. numbers.  I will ask that prople who can afford to will send me a money order for $8.95. 

Does that seem fair?  Suggestions for refining this system?

I'll post here again when I do the signup thread

Awesome.  Thanks again Adridne for your generosity!!  Can't wait to see the pics of the fabrics!!  I'm a fabric-a-holic!!

the system sounds fine to me!!!

and as far as other themes... i dont know what all you have, but...
solid group-obviously would be like your brown group but the other colors...like i dont know....PINK, GREEN..and so on.
"prints" group -which could be anything...paisleys, dots, tiny flowers
flowers/paisleys/dots group-assuming u have several of a print but in diff. colors
rainbow group - this could be fun! odd fabric thats of the ROYGBIV colors!
animals- if u have fabric with kitty cats/dogs/ fish on them
secret nothing-matches group-this could be anything that u arent sure fits in any other group!
WTH group- hee hee..this could be really fugly stuff (fun-ugly) that u may otherwise feel guilty for giving to someone but put it in a group with other fuglies and presto! instant coolness group!!

hope this helps or at least makes u (and everyone) smile at my crazy ideas!!! enjoy!!!

i was thinking if i had a TON of stuff to categorize, what i would do...and after i cried of frustration and overwhelming-ness, i would just have fun with it and make up whatever crazy groups u think they could be in...cause we (the craftster people) are all pretty quirky and ( i think) we would not mind getting whatever.....plus, i mean, you r being IMMENSELY nice by doing this anyways..right, chicas?  Kiss

sorry if i spoke for anyone that feels differently....peace... Grin

"Really Cute" sounds up my alley for sure. I like cute stuff. And fabric. And your awesomeness.

There will be a short delay while some issues are worked out.

Hope everything is ok, Adridne.

There are so many cute themes:  I'd be up for Goth, Really cute, and
70's sheets.

Hey guys-
There have been some complications, but the swap is still on.  I will be handling the first part (getting the fabric out to people) through PMs instead of the swap board.  The pairing up/crafting/swapping part will be a regular swap.
I will be sending a PM to everyone who expressed interest in the swap on this thread.  If you have not gotten a message from me today and you want to join the swap, please PM me.  And soon!
