Details of swap:
This swap is a perfect swap to clean out your stash! The swap is in celebration of Buy Nothing Day http://adbusters.org/metas/eco/bnd/
which is the day after Thanksgiving. The whole point is that you stay home and don't give into consumerism on the busiest shopping day of the year.

There are two basic rules for this swap:
1) you can't buy anything for the swap
2) everything you use has to be from your stash or something repurposed that you already have in your possession when you sign up.


You will craft 2 medium items for this swap. Feel free to craft more, just discuss it with your partner first! Some items to craft might include a reusable tote bag, reconed teeshirt, buttons, knit, crochet, or sewn things, clay things, embroidered items, ect., but EVERYTHING has to be something you already have in your possession when you sign up for the swap. Items you craft can be general all-purpose items, or they may be something that shows solidarity with the Buy Nothing Day movement.

Additionally, you may choose to suggest a craft that you would like to learn, and the person who is your partner can include the items for you to learn that craft. As it was said, "Come on, what better way is there to spend Buy Nothing Day than learning to make new things..."

A FEW OF MY RULES:
1. You MUST put Buy Nothing Swap in all of your PM's
2. You MUST post in the thread at least once a week
3. You MUST purchase a DC# if you and your partner live in the US, if you live in another country, you must provide me and your partner with a photo of your receipt if requested.
4. You MUST PM me when you send and receive
5. I simply will not approve anyone with multiple feedbacks stating they have not pm'd when sent or received, did not purchase DC, or is a habitual late sender.
6. Everyone is expected to send on time. If you are late, you must notify me. Those who are late and do NOT notify me,you will receive negative feedback on 11/23 which will not be removed or corrected until the items are sent, delivered, and I get a DC/tracking #. I know this sounds strict, but I want to have a smoothing running swap and want everyone to get what they deserve from their partners in a timely manner.


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

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Buy Nothing Swap Round 3
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?
What types of crafts can you make? (knit, sewn, jewelry, clay, ect)
What types of crafts would you like to receive? (it is probably best to be fairly open minded for this swap considering your partner isn't allowed to buy anything)
Is there a craft that you would like to receive a kit for (no guarantees)? (needle felting, knitting, crochet, embroidery, ect.)
Any allergies to fabrics, yarns, ect?
Anything you really don't want or need?
Would you like items that show your solidarity with the BND movement, or would you just like general/ all purpose items?
Tell your partner something about yourself so that they can craft to your tastes:
Do you have a wists/ blogger/ ect. List the URL here:
Is there anything else you want your partner or the organizer to know?


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.

This sounds like fun! I have a quick question though, I understand not buying anything for this one, but what if I need a pattern that is free online (purse, stuffie, pin cushion, knitting, etc), is downloading acceptable? I am really drawn to this idea!

I just signed up!  I'm sure my husband will be excited to learn that I'll be purging my stash for this swap.  It has gotten a little out of hand.  Smiley

i love the challenge of this swap, although it's really not THAT much of a challenge since i could practically open my own craft/sewing/yarn store out of my apartment. Grin

If it's free, then you aren't buying it! Mostly, we are talking that you can't buy materials.

Organizational note: if you sent in your info today, I've added your name to the front page and put the swap in your feedback. Lots of people signing up the first day-Yay!

OMG I am so signing up for this once i've got some feedback going. I was in the last two rounds and I absolutely love this swap. Especially since I'm on a tight budget and swaps tend to make me feel obligated to buy new things. So I really hope I can get in this one on time. Grin
