I've been thinking over the past couple of days and looking at all the swaps going on.

I was wondering if anyone else would be interested in a sort of 'Start a New Craft' swap.

Similiar to the Givers and Needers type swaps, I'm in a situation where I'm desperate to start crafting more with paper and ephemera but I'm not in a financial situation where this is really possible. But looking around my craft room I've got a ton of quilting supplies and yarn.

So I thought.."Wouldn't it be great if I could fill a box full of quilting supplies and get a box full of paper and ephemera in return?" I don't have enough swaps under my belt to organize, yet, but in my mind it was this sort of setup:

I'd list two crafts that I could fill a flat rate box full of supplies and two crafts that I'd want to get supplies for in return. Then, hopefully, there'd be enough interest that I could be matched up with someone who had paper and wanted fabric.  It doesn't have to be a craft that's new to someone either. If you've got an overabundance of one type of supply and short on another then this would work for you too!

Does it sound like a good idea to anyone else?

Will swap fabric (and maybe some other things) for tattoo/flash magazines. I seriously need about 1000 magazines. PM me!

take a look around for the "fill a flat rate box" swaps - that might be what you're looking for

Taking a break from swaps to get some stuff under control.  Email if you need me.
