Swap name: Zines swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Strat_Sista (with a little help from spicymulatta, thanks!!!!)
sign up date: there is no sign up date range, we'll keep this going as long as possible :-)
Date to send item by: send your zine before a week after you've organised it. if that makes sense.

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yeah. worldwide.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages.

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate:  yep

Organizer has been a member for at least 1 month and will
make sure that every participant has been a member for
at least 1 month: yep
Details of swap:
quite simply, we're doing a zine swap. it's not like the other swaps usually round here... members will post details of their zine (name, what's in it, how many issues you've made, how many pages, etc) and then they'll post something about what kind of zine they wanna swap with (or what kind of trade or money they're looking for).
and then (thanks spicymulatta for brainstorming ideas! this is her dirsct quote: "And then people can privately contact through private messages when they find someone they want to swap with?".
that's the basic gist of it, most of it probably doesn't make sense :-)
If you want to participate,post the foillowing stuff in this thread, BUT DON'T POST YOUR ADDRESS GUYS!! only when you're absolutely sure about the swap, THEN exchange your addresses between the two of yas.
this swap is sorta self-managed - everyone coordinates their own little swaps.

Craftster username: Strat_Sista
Country: Australia
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US? i can mail them anywhere... so this is where all you people living in the antarctic benefit :-)
Describe your zine: My zine is called All Strings Attached, you've probably heard about it round here....i have been rather heavy-handed with the self-promotion :-). it has mostly writing in it, i've done 2 issues and you'll probably get both when i swap. it is writing as in stories, fiction. i also have a band of the issue every issue... the Ramones and the living end have featured so far. the rest is more serious writing, though :-)
What kind of zine are you looking to swap with? any zine!!!! i really don't mind, i just love reading zines so much i don't care about where they come from or what they have in them :-) so if you have a zine, pm me!! i wanna trade!!!! :-)

I will hop in once my zine is out of the printing nightmare its in now. However it's a heavy metal zine...would anyone be interested?

You know what I think would be amazing? If we all collectively published a little DIY zine with crafts here. Nothing copywritten, but altered patterns and ideas for revamping things...stuff like that. People could submit a page, one person could put it all together, It'd be neat.

Good idea.  I wouldn't be able to, but if anyone else wanted to, I might submit something.
