Swap name: Swap a yard of fabric swap - August/September
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: TwiztidBlood
Sign-up date range: August 1 - August 31
Sign-up date range: September 1 - Septemeber 30 - resend questionaire
Date to send items by: Seven (7) days after someone claims from your list!
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 25
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes!
All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 18!)

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

I'm adding another rule to this swap to make it more open to everyone. Even though this is a month long swap, you can leave whenever you want - as long as your claims are even. This means that if you claim from someone, you have to let someone claim from you. You can then "quit" after your partner receives. Just PM me when you want to be finished.

DETAILS OF SWAP:

If youve got stashes of fabric, this is the swap for you!  This round will be taking place throughout August and September!

For each claim, you will get to select a total of one yard of fabric (combined from FQ:s, half yards or yards) from the list that is up for grabs at the moment.  In return, you will then be required to make a post with a minimum of six fabric swatches that you have available for someone else to claim.   

The amount of outstanding claims you are allowed is based on your craftster and swapping status. New swappers get one claim, Friends of Craftster get 3, and everyone else gets 2.

HOW TO PLAY:

Step 1.  Send in your answers to the swap questionnaire to get approved for this swap

Step 2.  Prepare your lists and photos of your fabric so that youll be ready to post the list when you make a claim!  Remember, you need 6 different fabrics minimum!  They do not each have to be a yard, but must each be at least a fat quarter.Along with the pictures, you should describe the type and clearly specify the quantity of fabric that youre offering!  For example:

1. "Brown and Turquoise Cotton Batik.  1/2 Yard Piece." or "polyester stretch fabric, any amount up to 1 yard"

Step 3.  Watch the swap thread for something youll like to claim.  To claim, post a reply along the lines of I claim one FQ of #2 and #6 plus half a yard of #4 from gavagais stash.  Then send a PM to the person youve claimed from listing what youve claimed and include your name and mailing address.

Step 4.  Now that youve made a claim, its your turn to post your list of fabric swatches!  If the thread idles for more than a day, please take the initiative to add more selections to your list!  When someone chooses from your list, you have seven (7) days to get the swap package out the door!

Step 5.  If you have not maxed out on the number of claims you have been approved for, you may keep on claiming.  If you have reached your limit, you will not be able to make another claim until one of your partners has received a swap package from you.


SOME RULES:

1.  You may not participate in this swap until you have been pre-approved by the swap organizer and are listed on the List of Approved Swappers. If youre thinking about participating, go for it and get pre-approved. By doing so, youll be ready to make a claim when you see something you like

2.  You must have ready access to a camera and know how to post pictures in the swap thread.  Please make sure you have your list (either links or pictures) of fabrics available when you start swapping!  You will need to have a minimum of six fabric swatches in your posts. You may also choose the option of posting links to your fabric swatches.  If you do that, please make sure that your links work!

3. The width of fabric is expected to be about 45". If your fabric is much wider than this you may - if you want - cut away a piece to adjust the width. An FQ is a fourth of a yard of fabric, i.e. about 18" x 22"

4.  All participants must be willing to ship to international destinations.  Since were only sending a total of a yard of fabric, shipping costs should be pretty reasonable.
 
5.  After a claim has been made, you have seven (7) days to mail your package!  Check out the second post of this swap thread to know when your swap packages are due.

6. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States. If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner(s) and the organizer (that would be me, cfrenia!)

7.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  You must let the organizer and your partner know when you have shipped, received or may be late!  You are still responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!     
 
8. Please offer fabric selections that others would want to claim.  Try to include a variety of fabrics in your lists. Another good rule of thumb to follow is this: If you're offering a piece of fabric to "simply get rid of it", that's probably not a good thing!!

I'm going to need a co-organizer soon! PM me if you're interested!

If that sounds good to you and you want to participate, send the following information to the organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of swap: Swap a yard of fabric Sept/Aug

I claim Star Wars fabric plus unknown cat fabric. (Would that equal 1 yard?) I am also interested in the jersey fabric, so if you're interested in any of my fabrics maybe we could do a personal swap as well, or if you claim me I'll claim you again or something... Otherwise just what I claimed is fine to.  Cheesy

All cotton! All new fabrics! All of my fabrics are washed once (I do that with all my cottons).
I may have more than I stated of some of the fabrics, but have to check first.




White dots on black, up to 1/2 yard.




Colourful IKEA thingies on white, up to 1/2 yard. (this fabric new and not washed)




Brownish flower outlines on cream, up to 1/2 yard.




Blue flower outlines, up to 1/2 yard.




Cream paisley, up to 1/2 yard.




Big apples, up to 1 yard.

I'd like to claim
#10 - BROCADE FABRIC accents of red, gold, green, purple, blue (1 yard)
I'm in the US. This is my first claim.
List:
Please note I have 4 furry kitties. They do not "get into" my fabric but cat hair is everywhere. I am willing to wash and iron everything. (though some fabric has been pre-washed...)

Star wars Cotton:

11 inches at the narrow end. You are seeing a little over half the piece.
I'm counting it as a fat quarter. Smiley

Pink cotton:

This is striped with a quarter to show stripe size.It's a bit thin but not totally see-through. I have a bit under 1/2 a yard here.

Floral cotton:


(1/2 yard-ish)

Bird Panel cotton:
Picture one is first half and picture 2 is other half. Smiley


1/2 yard-ish

Green Cord:
Dark green has smaller ribs as you can see in the second picture.


1 yard dark green, 1/2 yard light green

Black Cord:

I have 1 yard left of this.
These are all thick and heavey. I will also be lint rolling these jsut to make sure the cat fur gets off. I have no idea how the cat hair got on the black in the first place as it was under a pile of other fabric on my shelf!

I claim:
#7 - satiny poly - black with multicircles  1/2 yard  and
#5 Poly blend blue floral - brushed suedey feel 1/2 yard


Fabrics all at least one yard unless noted:
#1 100% cotton, home decorator weight, burgundy, mauve, green, and purple.  Please note, this fabric was sewn into a tube along the selvage.  It was used as a curtain-type thing and came with our house.  It has been washed.  Being a fabric lover, I had to save it, and if you cut right long the seam line, you would only lose the selvage.


#2 Cotton Flannel, burgundy and green

 
#3 Teal, green, and black blobs.  From Ikea.  Not sure of the content


#4 Green and blue trees.  Also from Ikea, also unsure of content


#5 Sheer fabric, Grey and shimmery white skulls (each skull is about 1" tall, this is a closeup)


#6 Shimmery red with black skulls.  Skulls are only on right side of fabric.  Not quite lycra, but that the closest to how it feels


#7 Orange with black spiders (Halloween is coming!).  I think this is cotton.  Only 1/2 yard available


#8 Olive green flowers.  Piece is 28x24, so we will call it a really fat quarter


#9 Brown, gold, and red brocade dragons.  Also a closeup (and very hard to take a picture of).  1 yard x 40"


#10 Fleece, Navy theme.  The largest part will make a fat quarter.  I'm throwing it up here because perhaps someone could use the designs as accents for something.  Yes, this one is sort of like I'm "just getting rid of it," but I'm not going to use it and its too big throw away.

 Id' like to claim DeannaLynn06 for the following:
1/2 yard#6 blue butterflies cotton, 1/4 of #10 the green checks, and 1/4 of #4 Blue with white flowers.

This makes my second claim and one to be mailed out. Smiley I live in the US, and I have cats but am willing to wash all fabrics and iron. Just let me know when you claim!
Pink cotton:

This is striped with a quarter to show stripe size.It's a bit thin but not totally see-through. I have a bit under 1/2 a yard here.

Floral cotton:


(1/2 yard-ish)

Bird Panel cotton:
Picture one is first half and picture 2 is other half. Smiley


1/2 yard-ish

Green Cord:
Dark green has smaller ribs as you can see in the second picture.


1 yard dark green, 1/2 yard light green

Black Cord:

I have 1 yard left of this.
These are all thick and heavey. I will also be lint rolling these jsut to make sure the cat fur gets off. I have no idea how the cat hair got on the black in the first place as it was under a pile of other fabric on my shelf!

Brown and white poly:


at least one yard

Yellow poly:

At least one yard

Pink flannel Bandanna Print:

1/4 yard

Sheer-ish Orange w/white stripe(soft):


3/4 yard

Pink sheer and Stretchy, Sheer, Snake print:


Sheer pink 1/4 yard
Snake print sheer 1/4 yard

Solid Red Flannel:

(blue not available)
3/4 yard

Bird Cotton pannel2:


Panel is 18 inches tall, and about 42 inches wide. I'm calling it a f/q as I've had this awhile planning to make a bag out of it and never have.

Instant dress Cotton:


18 inches wide at elastic. I think it's 42 inches long. Would be great to make a toddler dress out of! The bottom has a thin all ready made strap attached to it with those little plastic thingies that hold tags on items.
I think that's technically 1/2 yard?

(in case iheartcaptnhook is wondering I didn't realize I had 2 yards of the green cord.)

Is there any stretch in the brown and white poly Eliea?
Yes. It stretches the most in the direction of the stripes but also stretches the other way. The yellow poly is also stretchy.
