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

Details of swap:

Very simple! This is a small, low stress fiber swap that will hopefully happen bi-monthly, granted people keep wanting to do it. This swap is open to anyone who enjoys working with fiber; spinners, felting artists, etc.

Minimum Requirements:

3 oz. fiber of your choice
1 small spinning/fiber art related hand crafted item

Ideas for items: something made from handspun yarns, a drop spindle, handmade tools for spinning on wheels or plying, a diz, a PVC niddy noddy, trinkets for plying, put together by hand plying & spinning goody bags, hand dyed/carded fiber (fiber must be manipulated/dyed by you to count as a crafted item), clever containers for fiber or yarn, fiber arts lap towels and blankets, collections of natural dye stuffs, or more fiber! The possibilities are endless.

Please be aware that in this swap we will be expecting:
- Weekly check-ins within the discussion thread, just so we know everyone is having a nice time and is still around. Check in with your partner at least....
- Good communication between partners and organizers. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or for help. We would rather know there are issues than wonder what is going on with swappers.
- To notify organizers if you will be sending late. This is important.
- For partners to take pictures and post in the gallery.


Feedback will be given at the end of the swap.

I'm thinking I'll sign up this weekend.  I'm leaving in a couple of minutes for the Michigan Fiber Festival, so I'll soon have lots of fiber for spoiling!!
