AFTER PEOPLE HAVE SIGNED UP AND BEEN APPROVED, LIST THE PARTICIPANTS HERE AND WHO IS SENDING TO WHOM:
Participants:
In an attempt to get everybody the packages they want to get and the packages they want to craft with, there is a somewhat wonky setup of two rings and two partnerships:
Ring 1:
atsuko>kitty98626>born2bwild>tattooedcrafter>atsuko

Ring 2:
Stargazersewer>Jessvict>cassafrass>adridne>Stargazersewer

Partners:
Mayerlove<-->Shadowstealer
Dizzylizzy<-->Meshelltakeone

Also, I changed one of the packages.  There was almost no interest in the fuzzy package, so I pulled out another couple of vintage sheets (because really, what fabric hoard is complete without at least four vintage sheets?) and made up a second vintage sheet package.

Here's what everyone is working with:
Atsuko is crafting Cute for kitty98626
TattooedCrafter is crafting Goth Queen for atsuko
Stargazersewer is crafting Fire Engine Camo for jessvict
Mayerlove is crafting Chocolate Cake for shadowstealer
Kitty98626 is crafting Envious for Born2bwild
Shadowstealer is crafting Corduroy for Mayerlove
Meshelltakeone is crafting Vintage Sheets 1 for dizzylizzy
Jessvict is crafting Vintage Sheets 2 for cassafrass
Adridne is crafting Odd Prints for stargazersewer
Born2Bwild is crafting The Big Day for Tattooedcrafter
Cassafrass is crafting I wish I was a Sofa for Adridne
Dizzylizzy is crafting Up and Down for meshelltakeone

Absolutely you can add fabric!  Using stuff from your own stash is especially encouraged. Smiley

This is such an awesome swap idea! Random question... there's no specs on how many items etc that we're making. Should we plan on using all of the fabric sent to us?

You should use a lot of it.  Communicate with your partner.  Is there a fabric your partner particularly likes?  One she's not so fond of?  You don't have to use all of every piece, but this should be about using these things to craft for your partner.
As for specs on items, I'd say one big, two small.
