I would love to receive some beads from other countries/areas.  I would be willing to organize a bead swap with other craftsters from overseas who would like to send me some beads and I can send you some American style beads. 

I am an old swap hag, but I understand that this is new to some of you, so let's try to work out the details together.

Everyone from overseas would send a package of 50 beads to each person in the United States.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Each person in the United States would send a package of 50 beads to each person overseas.  That would be 4 bags of 50 beads.  Does this make sense?  Postage should not be a huge issue on a small bag of beads, but if it is, please let me know.

No seed beads. Up to 10 of the 50 beads could be charms, but it is not mandatory.  Beads should go together somewhat (i.e. color, size) so that something could be made with the new stashes!  I think any findings or seed beads anyone wants to send would be considered an extra bonus, but is also not mandatory.

Mail by Janury 15, 2005 or sooner...the sooner the better!

HERE IS THE SIGN UP LIST:

OVERSEAS:  Purplehippo, Milly, Blackcat, Tinybits
UNITED STATES:  Bkrenning4, Mrsbenjimadden, krazigal72, xmelinda,


If there is any problem with mailing, please let me know.

Thanks!  Let's have fun!

IMPORTANT:

I TAKE SWAPPING VERY SERIOUSLY.  I WILL NOT HESITATE TO REPORT ANYONE WHO FAILS TO FOLLOW THRU ON THEIR SWAP OBLIGATION.  I UNDERSTAND DELAYS, BUT EXPECT TO BE NOTIFIED.  IF ANYONE DOUBTS THEIR ABILITY TO COMPLETE THIS SWAP, PLEASE EMAIL ME NOW.

I would like to do this one -- you might want to change the title/subject though, because some people might think it's a bead swap for people who live overseas, like the recent Aussie ones.  I mean, it *is*, but I wonder if people who live in the US might be skipping over it.  I did, at first.

I like the idea. I'm from Poland and I would like the idea of making a swap. Just tell me what would be the cost of sending them and what kind of beads do you what and how many of them.
I newer took part in event like that and I'm looking forward to it.
