Details of swap:
Been given craft supplies by well-intentioned friends, only to find it’s all supplies for crafts you DO NOT know how to do? Have a surplus of supplies you are willing to bid adieu and ship to a new loving home? Have I got a deal for you
This swap is all about filling a small flat rate box or small flat rate envelope with supplies to your partner(s) and making their day! You will have a choice of ONE or TWO partners for this swap.
Crafted items are NOT required…but who wouldn’t like a little goodie tucked in with their yarn/fabric/beads/embroidery floss/etc.? LOL!
Here are links to the small box and envelope we will be using. Either item costs 4.95+delivery confirmation cost to ship at the post office (which is about another .75 or .80), or 4.80 online with Click n Ship…AND…Click n Ship cost INCLUDES the cost for delivery confirmation! Delivery confirmation IS REQUIRED for this swap, and because it’s SO easy, I highly recommend using the Click n Ship method. You can order these boxes or envelopes for FREE from these links, but they DO take 7-10 days to arrive as they are shipped by parcel post AKA slow boat shipping so be sure to order early!!
Small Flat Rate Box – Dimensions: 5-3/8” x 8-5/8” x 1-5/8”http://tinyurl.com/y9994p7
Small Flat Rate Envelope – Dimensions: 12.5" x 9.5"http://tinyurl.com/yg6swuj

The flat rate envelope would be best suited for fabric, paper and ephemera, embroidery floss, patterns and booklets, or other flatter-type items. Beads, stamps, yarn, scissors, and other non-flat-type stuff would be best shipped in the small box. They both would hold about the same amount, one is really just better for paper goods if that is your partner’s preference.Please communicate in the thread or by PM once a week. If this swap gets VERY large, I will coordinate a weekly check-in PM with my co-organizer to make sure everyone is still out there and plans on sending.
And, the most important rule…..HAVE FUN!!
