Is anyone interested in another round of Givers and Needers?

For those of you who haven't seen it before, the swap has a group of well-stashed crafters (Givers) and a group of swappers low of stash, or just starting out with a certain craft (Needers). The Givers send to the Needers, and the Needers send back a small crafted thank-you present.

Here is the link to the last round I could find:

and Gallery:

I have been in a previous round as a Needer, and would love to be a Giver this time. I'm willing to organize as well, if people are interested.

I have to give this some thought.  I'm still working on destashing, but there are also some things that I need for new crafts.

You were definitely an excellent giver for me in the last round..... I'm slowly making my way through everything! Everytime I think of something I need for a craft it turns out I got that one small thing from you!!  Cheesy

I'm glad you could use it.  We had fun putting that package together. 

That was also the beginning of my partner's swapping on Craftster.  Now she's a veteran swapper.

Hmmmmmmmm..... could you sign up to be both a giver and a needer?Huh

This also applies to me.... there are some things I would really like to have but some others that need new homes.....

The Fill-A-Box swap that's in sign-ups now lets you send supplies to get new-to-you ones back in return:

In the past, this swap has allowed for both.  If you sign up as a giver, you just send supplies.  If you sign up as a needer, then you make a thank you gift for your sender.  If you do both, you send twice.

Are you changing this part of it?

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

I love this swap.  I organized it once.

I'll be a giver.  I have a ton of fabric.
