Details of swap:

If you <3 fabric, this is the swap for you!  This round will be taking place throughout the month of January.

This is an ongoing swap: Claim a total yard of fabric from the list of the last person who posted, and post your own list in response. It makes a chain.

For each claim, you will get to select a total of one yard of fabric (combined from FQs, half yards or a yard) from the list that is up for grabs at the moment.  In return, you will then be required to make a post with a minimum of eight fabric swatches that you have available for someone else to claim.   

The amount of outstanding claims you are allowed is based on your Craftster and swapping status. New swappers get 1 claim, Friends of Craftster get 3, and everyone else gets 2.

HOW TO PLAY:

Step 1.  Send in your answers to the swap questionnaire to me and Casey1201 via PM to get approved for this swap

Step 2.  Prepare your lists and photos of your fabric so that youll be ready to post the list when you make a claim!  Remember, you need 8 different fabrics minimum!  They do not each have to be a yard, but must each be at least a fat quarter. Along with the pictures, you should describe the type and clearly specify the quantity of fabric that youre offering!  For example:

1. "Brown and Turquoise Cotton Batik.  1/2 Yard Piece." or "polyester stretch fabric, any amount up to 1 yard"

Step 3.  Watch the swap thread for something youll like to claim.  To claim, post a reply along the lines of
 I claim one FQ of #2 and #6 plus half a yard of #4 from pixievals list. 
Then send a PM to the person youve claimed from listing what youve claimed and include your name and mailing address.

Step 4.  Now that youve made a claim, its your turn to post your list of fabric swatches!  If the thread idles for more than a day, please take the initiative to add more selections to your list!  When someone chooses from your list, you have seven (7) days to get the swap package out the door!

Step 5.  If you have not maxed out on the number of claims you have been approved for, you may keep on claiming.  If you have reached your limit, you will not be able to make another claim until one of your partners has received a swap package from you.


SOME RULES:

1.  You may not participate in this swap until you have been pre-approved by the swap organizer or co-organizer and are listed on the List of Approved Swappers. If youre thinking about participating, go for it and get pre-approved. By doing so, youll be ready to make a claim when you see something you like

2.  You must have ready access to a camera or scanner and know how to post pictures in the swap thread.  Please make sure you have your list (either links or pictures) of fabrics available when you start swapping!  You will need to have a minimum of eight fabric swatches in your posts. You may also choose the option of posting links to your fabric swatches.  If you do that, please make sure that your links work!

3. The width of fabric is expected to be about 45". If your fabric is much wider than this you may - if you want - cut away a piece to adjust the width. An FQ is a fourth of a yard of fabric, i.e. about 18" x 22"

4.  All participants must be willing to ship to international destinations.  Since were only sending a total of a yard of fabric, shipping costs are pretty reasonable.
 
5.  After a claim has been made, you have seven (7) days to mail your package!  Check out the second post of this swap thread to know when your swap packages are due.

6. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States. If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the USA, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner(s) and the organizers (that would be pixieval and Casey1201!)

7.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizers.  You must let the organizers and your partner know when you have shipped, received or may be late!  You are still responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!     
 
8. Please offer fabric selections that others would want to claim.  Try to include a variety of fabrics in your lists. Dont include only Christmas fabrics or only vintage fabrics, etc.
 Another good rule of thumb to follow is this: If you're offering a piece of fabric to "simply get rid of it", please dont. 

9. This thread is limited to lists only.  Please keep all chatter over here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330513.0

10. At the top of your claim post, state how many claims you have made this month, and how many of those are outstanding (i.e. the recipient has not yet received the item).

(Example)
Claims Allowed (Outstanding): 3
Claims made: 4
Sendouts Not Sent: 1
Sendouts Sent: 2
Sendouts Received: 1

Remember your outstanding claim limit for this round:
Friend of Craftster: Three (become a Friend of Craftster!)
First-Time Swapper: One
Everyone Else: Two
