Do you remember the days when being friends meant giving bracelets you put all of your blood, sweat, and tears into? The embroidery floss and hemp bracelets would stay on your wrists for months or years to remind you of that best friend ever you left back at camp. Now is the time to regain that nostalgia by joining this swap. Each swapper will be placed into a group (or more) of three people (or more). You are required to make a bracelet for each member in your group. We don't want to braided bracelets... well unless it is really complex and awesome. You can make the same type of bracelet for each member but please make them personalized to the partner. There has been given a one month crafting period in order for all bracelets to be made. You can send out whenever you are ready. And please only sign up if you can fulfill your obligations and don't sign up for more than you can handle.


If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Friendship Bracelet Swap

Hello girls! I just wanted to let you know that DC#s are not necessary for this swap and I believe everyone was just going to mail from their home box. Just snap a picture of your envelopes ready to be sent to either lilbandade or tankrgrl.

I'm totally in! Well, completing my first swap now (it's sendout is the 13th, just in time!)
 but I love making bracelets and doing new patterns<33 making them for myself is allright but making them for others = much better!

If anyone is looking for ideas or cool patterns or inspirations/instructions, here are two of the most popular places on the net for bracelets and info:

Heather's site:
http://hbernb.atspace.com/index.html
the forum (LOTS of good stuff!):  http://friendshipbracelets.superforums.org/index.php

Steffen's site:

I'm in too!
Just one question about the questionnaire:
Does `ability refers to how good you are at making the bracelets or to the amount youre willing to make?

I'm in! I just sent in my questionnare!  I wasn't sure about ability either. I always have really bad swap anxiety so I gave myself a 5.  Undecided  However, with the links you guys have provided I'm sure I'll be able to make some cool stuff.

I never even considered allergies! I'm VERY allergic to jute so there is no way I can make anything jute and probably hemp for my partner. sigh  Sad But I can rock the floss!

I'm debating this one, I have a ton of embroidery floss in every color and I use to love making these it would be nice to make them again.

I sent in my info! Can't wait to get started. This is so exciting, I haven't made these in years. I may practice a little for my friends/family during the signup period. I did give myself a 6 for ability b/c I hadn't made any in years, but I'm pretty good at picking things back up.

That's one of the reasons I signed up too! SOOOOO much floss! Plus, if I don't have a specific color my partner likes embroidery floss is so cheap!

Same here. For a few months now I have been thinking about making myself one in different shades of red with some great vitnage beads worked in. So maybe I'll do that as practice.
