Details of swap:
OK, this is pretty easy. A lot of us crafters are blessed with an over abundance of supplies that we may or may not ever use. Why not put some of those supplies to good use and send them to a crafter who may not have the means because of school, families or financial issues.
Givers (senders) -
Simply fill up a box (as much or as little as you can afford shipping for, but at a minimum lets say an average shoe box size) and send to your partner. Must get DC for your package
Needers (Recievers) – in return you will send a small “Thank You” (ie: ATC, handmade card, small project) nothing to time consuming nor that would cost a lot to ship (say something that wont cost more than $1.00 in shipping). You must send something back as proof that you received your package. Since these will be small no DC will be required.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

now i have a question . . . . can you be both giver and reciever? i have a ridiculously HUGE supply of sewing notions and fabric (if it said sale i bought it kinda stash) but lately have neglected my sewing room for my crochet bag in my favorite recliner. trouble is i have to order yarns and what nots from the us or eastern canada because my hillbilly neck of the woods doesn't realize there are yarns other than acrylic and hooks other than those metal dealys at walmart. and amigurumi means nothing to these locals so why would i need saftey eyes if i crochet? lol

I am wondering the same thing, if we can sign up as sender and receiver.  I have oodles of sewing notions, lace, and whatnots for sewing that I inherited from my mother when she passed away 5 years ago.  I am needing anything that can be used for quilting or loomknitting.  Maybe we can sign up as both???

I just sent my questionare in.

i am sorry for being a bad, rude swapper. i am sorry to all the partners i flaked on, and all the feelings i hurt. i feel really guilty, my life is messed up right now and i got greedy and selfish. i didnt think about anything but getting nice things. i am so sorry everyone. i'll be leaving now.

The point of this swap was not to be a traditional suppy swap, I really wanted to do it as an unconditional swap, but those are not allowed anymore. I really need to get rid of some stuff, but I dont want anything in return. If you are wanting to trade stuff, there is usually a supply/stash swap every few months or so.

I would like to be a sender if you need me, but I just want to keep an eye on the sign-up list for now. Ignore me Cheesy

WOW, I am really impressed with how many "Givers" I have so far (most of you offered to send 2 as well), I thought for sure I would be begging at the zero hour for more givers.
That is just awesome! We crafters sure are generous.

Only 3 more needers and 4 more givers and we will be full.

I signed up to be a needer...I really hope I get in on this. I'm not trying to evoke pity or anything, but I need this bad.  Undecided I'm also excited to make something in return! Yay! Cheesy

On a swapping hiatus due to college...
