Awesome sounding swap, info sent in!  Smiley  Now that I am finally up and running this will be great.  Just got the all clear from the doctor today, just will be tired for a few weeks, but this one is easy.

I'm interested.  I'm still a very new spinner, and in the middle of Christmas crafting.  What's the deadline to spin the yarn by, and are we posting it back to the partner who sent the supplies?

Beginner spinners are welcome to join this swap. We are not sending the yarn back to our partners, the yarn will be yours to keep. And because I understand time restraints I am only going to encourage that the yarn be spun within 3 weeks of receiving the supplies, if that deadline doesn't work then understand that there will no repercussions for not spinning fast enough.
