Do you love crafting with fiber?

Do you have some fiber in your stash that you can't use because it is the wrong color, wrong type, you have too much of it or you just feel like something different?

Would you like to swap it for some fiber from someone else's stash and make each other a SMALL item from fiber?

If you answered yes to these questions, then why not sign up for the Fiber Stash Swap? It's a low cost way to give your unwanted fiber a new home and get some fresh supplies, plus you get to use some of your stash to create a little something for your partner.

i have a bag of 8ozs of beautiful brown/black/tan/cream mill ends that i have absolutely no idea what to do with. (i'm a VERY new spinner) would this work?

i mean the fiber is pretty and fluffy its just not in a form i understand how to spin . . . yet. i would love for it to go to an experienced spinner and receive fiber that is already ready for spinning. is this something that would work for this swap?

spinning wise i could definitely spin up some handspun for the crafted small
