What am I talking about?  Well, I have noticed how some of these swaps have names and participants who are experienced in swapping and know the ropes around here.  Well, what about us newbies who aren't really sure of what is going on.  Perhaps, starting a swap here there are a group of newbies and then a group of experienced swappers and they are paired up together with the experienced swapper showing the newbie what they might swap and then the newbie craft something for their experienced swapper.  Kinda like a "Guiding Angel Swapper" teaching a "Newbie" what would be acceptable to swap.

I wouldn't be able to Lead this swap but I was just thinking about this.   Anyone got any ideas or would be interested?Huh

Just a thought........... Smiley

Howdy!  There's a Newbies Only swap that the lovely Kishcrafts organizes and runs.

Here's the forum:

She's always starting new rounds, so pm her if you'd like, and get ready to be addicted to swapping!

I'd just add on to that note and say that if you have a chance to join, definitely do it. Kish is notorious for being ever-so-helpful with helping newbies like myself learn the ropes and become miserably addicted to swapping. Cheesy
