...then this swap is for you! It's a lot like the Ongoing Wish Swap, except instead of posting what you want to receive, you'll post what you want to give.  To join you must have at least five things that you have made/would like to make/want to trade.

This is an ongoing swap, feel free to join up at any time this month! To join, first send a Personal Message to organizer Eliea and co-organizer tcha345 with the following questionnaire info. Once you are approved, you are free to claim something(ie one item) from the most recent list posted, and then post your own list.

...and that's it, basically  Cheesy

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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:Ongoing Offer What You Have Swap - october 08
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address including the country:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country? (you must be to join):
Confirm that are at least 13 years old (and please mention how old you are if under 18) (yes/no):
Your list of at least five items (crafts you can make/have ready-made or details of supplies you wish to offer), detailed description not necessary:
Have you read the swap info (in this post) carefully and commit to follow the rules of the swap?:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.  http://craftster.org/swapsinfo.html

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an item from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. When we get to the end of the month, the very last person to post a list will be the first person to post a list at the beginning of the next month, if Craftsters decide to organize a new round at that time.

At the top of your claim post, state how many claims you have made this month, and how many of those are outstanding (i.e. the recipient has not yet received the item).


Claims Allowed (Outstanding):3
Claims made so far: 4
Sendouts Not Sent:1
Sendouts Sent:2
Sendouts in Transit:1
Sendouts Received:1

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster!)
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two

This is how many pending at a time you may have. As soon as one of your packages is received then you may claim again.

Your list of offerings: if your list stays up for more than 48 hours before someone claims from it, you must add something to it. You can also allow claimers to add more items together to make a claim (i.e. they don't seem to be biting on your earrings, so now they can take two pairs for a single claim instead of just one.) If you are having trouble coming up with stuff to add, consider offering a small item to be custom made for the person who claims from you. This can be conditioned on using stash items if you wish. Remember that it must be something that you can complete in two weeks, unless your partner agrees otherwise.

Once someone claims from you, you have two weeks to get the package in the mail.  Please contact the organizer by personal message when you send the package and when you receive a package so everyone gets credit.

ALSO: Please make sure to post to the discussion thread so you stay up on any updates! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271522.0
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do not sign up unless you are willing to send outside of your country.

Check out the previous rounds if you need help figuring out the scope of what to put on your list. It is typically in the $5-$15 range, from a half a yard to a couple yards of fabric depending on weight and fanciness, crafted accessories, grab bags of yarn, beads, buttons and notions, things of that nature.

Photos and the Gallery: Whenever possible, include pictures of the items you're offering in your posts. When you receive, it is important for you to thank your partner, be courteous and communicative, but a lot of the items are premade or stash, so posting pictures in the Gallery isn't crucial. The exception to this is when something is custom-made for you in this swap. And if you make something with supplies you receive in this swap, we want to see it!

Delivery Confirmation numbers are mandatory for people in the U.S. sending to other people in the U.S., and everyone else must keep their receipts.

This round of the swap will close around midnight, on the official Craftster clock, October 31st. Feedback will be given on November 1st for all participants who have no pending claims. Everyone whose packages haven't been received will get feedback once the package reaches its destination.

Reminders/Summary:
1. Make sure to PM both me and tcha345 and who you sent to when you send out, with DC number if you are both in US.
2. Make sure to PM both me and tcha345 and who you receive from when you receive.
3. As soon as you claim something from someone, shoot them a PM with your address so that they have it and don't have to chase you down later.
4. Lets keep this swap moving, Please try to stay on top of adding new things/combining items into one claim if your list stays up more than a couple days, or the organizer will hunt you down and remind you.
5. Post pics in the gallery if someone makes you something custom or you make something from supplies you receive. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137907.0
6. Lets try to keep this thread for lists as much as possible to save on confusion. If your list is up, you may post a "bump" after you have added something new/combined your items, but otherwise please try to post all questions/comments/requests/whatever into our discussion thread. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=260942.0

I'll claim your silver linen!
Claims: 2
Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 3
Sendouts Not Sent: 0
Sendouts Sent: 1
Sendouts in Transit: 1   
Sendouts Received: 0

1 CLAIM EACH:
NEW repositionable flower stickers unopened

NEW 1 metre (1.25 yards)of proper lycra swimsuit fabric - very drapy - would also make a leotard or dancewear

NEW Little bag (12" approx deep) with wood effect handles, padded with denim lining and a little pocket inside. Made from Amy Butler fabric. A bit of a 'second' as I was experimenting with a new shape and it doesn't hang very well - useful for storing small craft projects or even pegs for the washing line!

3 copies of Discovering Needlecraft magazine - lovely partwork series that include the cover kit. Or 4 copies without a cover kit. Selected at random!

2 velvet iron-ons for t shirts etc – very hard wearing and can be washed without any problems. I had loads and my little one is too old for these now

2 kits for cross stitch – linen and cotton floss plus chart – no colour pix but nice classic designs (both for 1 claim)

3 nylon mesh ‘ball bag’ kits from wazoodle com. Include cord and toggle for fastening. Make huge bags to store balls, outdoor cushions etc in – won’t be ruined by damp etc. I have 2 sets.


The scented house – lots of ideas and projects for dried/pressed flowers and scents
 


CHOOSE 2:
(one pattern equals ½ point)
Assorted patterns – unused – donna karan one is 14/16/18 uk size,
Vintage maternity uk 12, vintage wedding uk 12/14 I think

Needle thread holder for embroidery

Claims: 1
Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 2
Sendouts Not Sent: 1
Sendouts Sent: 0
Sendouts in Transit: 0 
Sendouts Received: 0


1 per claim:

Child's quilt

I actually have 4 of these, the one in the picture has a little sewing on it, the other three do not.

Matching smaller print (for pillows maybe?)

This does have a slit cut in it a couple inches from the print on the top. Sorry, it came to me that way.

2.5 balls of black crochet cotton - 1 claim.


Claim two:
Stuff your own doll/dog pattern

As you can see, I have two of these. 1 front/back for a half claim

Stuff your own carebears, I have several types.


As you can see, grumpy is already cut and stitched. I can stuff him for you if you want.


Garter stitch and crocheted scarves, trying to destash fun fur! 1/2 claim each. The middle two are child sized, the outside two are adult.


Beads and such: Unopened pink seed bead package, fake pearls (cheap kind but lots of them) and 1 ball of crocheted nylon: 1/2 claim each.

5 balls of rug yarn for a half point. I think I actually have 16 of these or so. Some of them are wound into balls and came to me that way so I can't guarantee full yardage on some of them but they look like they are all there. I'm told it works really well for pet stuff but I don't have any pets.


Other:
I have a ton of blockbuster backer cards. Some fairly recent movies some older ones. I'll send you 5 for a half claim or 10 for 1 claim. I can try to send a certain genre if you have a preference.
