Details of swap:

Welcome to the Givers and Needers swap!

Givers will send a box of craft supplies to a very grateful needer.  In return, you get the satisfaction of knowing that you helped someone continue their love of crafting, plus a small thank you gift.  Although there is no size specification, please ensure that you are sending a box that you would be happy to receive.

Needers will receive a box of supplies from a very generous giver.  In return, they will send a thank you gift that is the equivalent of a small.

This is a great way to de-stash and help a fellow crafter out who may for various reasons need some supply help.

This swap is limited to 24 participants.

If you would like to be both a Giver and a Needer (say you have an excess of fabric to help a beginning sewer, but just started knitting and need yarn), that is allowed.

 Please put Givers and Needers in all PM subjects.  I reserve the right to refuse ANYONE based on late sending, history of incomplete packages, etc, etc.

This is an incredible concept. I hope to be a giver someday when my money/living situation isn't so barren. Smiley

(Maybe once I get all my yarn back and go through it when this comes around again)

It's more like 7 or 8 needers already... it's been 12 hours...

So, for now, I won't be approving any more needers until we have caught up in numbers a little bit.  If you are approved for this swap, you are listed in the second post of this thread.  If not, you're on a waiting list.  First come, first served.

Also, this may come across the wrong way, but needers who aren't willing to ship out of country will be missing out.  So far our ONLY giver is in Canada, and if I decide to join the swap as a giver, that will be two Canadian givers.
