In this swap we will send different bits of yarn, ribbon, and strips of fabric out of our stash around to multiple people, and in the end we will all have enough to make rapunzel scarves.  Here is the famous Rapunzel Scarf.  The basic scarf is made from 30 pieces of ten foot yarn, ribbons, strips of fabric, etc.
 
To participate in this swap, you will need to send 8 pieces of 10-foot lengths of yarn, fabric, ribbon, etc. to 4 partners (changed Nov. 22nd after pairing....if you can not make this amount, please PM me, and I'll take care of it personally).  This is a quick, low-stress swap, and a great stash buster.  (Plus, rapunzel scarves would make a fab holiday present. Wink)


HERE ARE THE LINKS TO PAST GALLERIES: Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, Round 4, Round 5

Please Note: Depending on the amount of people who sign up, the numbers may need to be tweaked a bit, so please remain flexible on the matter. You may need to send a little more or less to make everything fair and even.  Depending on the number of participants, we may get to express a few preferences. (I will try to match up people with preferences, but it may not be possible.)  This swap is a little different from other swaps in that you will be shipping to multiple partners. The good news is that your yarn, ribbon, etc. can fit in an envelope and will weigh very little.

Personal Messages (PMs)
  • Please label PMs to organizer with title of "yarn swap".
  • When you send, label PM as "SENT: yarn swap". (don't forget to include your DC#).  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.
  • When you receive, label PM as "RECEIVED: yarn swap".  Send this message to the organizer and your partner.

Notes about Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
  • SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send.  When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives.  PM organizer and partner when you send.
  • RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive.  Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.)  Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
  • FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not)  *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*  NOTE: Lack of communication and explanation, such as no PMs of sending/receiving, will be noted in your feedback.

Okay, you've read my long intro. Now to the fun bit!

Me either!  I'm pondering my stash right now; I think I have some fab yarn to share. Wink  I'm particularly excited because I'm going to use my scarf for a Xmas present.  Hopefully with the low stress and long sign-up time we will get several peeps to join our swap. :::fingers crossed:::  Grin

This one isn't crafting!  You're just cutting yarn!
