Inspired by the wonderful Lubee this craft swap will ask you to send your parter an assortment of wild, wonderful, wacky, fibery, silly or just plain daring items to be spun into an art yarn. I am requesting that you send a minimum of 3oz of fiber and 1 oz  "extras" so that your partner can spin a sizeable yarn. Items sent can include but are not limited to, batts, rolags, roving, locks, combed top, commercial yarns, beads, feathers, fabric strips, felted nubs, thread etc...

Partners will be announced on 3/30/08.

Raynbow.. You know you want to!
 Cheesy


We are up to six participants so far, which is pretty good! I figured this would be a slow-to-join swap.

This looks fun Smiley  Quick question.  Are we required to post pictures of the finished yarn, or is it just a supply swap of sorts?
