Details of swap:

Have you been given craft supplies by well-intentioned friends, only to find it’s all supplies for crafts you DO NOT know how to do?  Have a surplus of supplies you are willing to bid adieu and ship to a new loving home?  Have I got a deal for you  Grin

This swap is all about filling a small flat rate box or small flat rate envelope with supplies to your partner(s) and making their day!  You will have a choice of ONE or TWO partners for this swap.

Crafted items are NOT required…but who wouldn’t like a little goodie tucked in with their yarn/fabric/beads/embroidery floss/etc.?  LOL!

Here are links to the small box and envelope we will be using.  Flat rate boxes cost 4.85 and flat rate envelopes cost 4.75 to ship online with Click n Ship…AND…Click n Ship cost INCLUDES the cost for delivery confirmation!  Delivery confirmation IS REQUIRED for this swap, and because it’s SO easy, I highly recommend using the Click n Ship method.  Also, you can schedule a FREE pickup for your mail person to pick up the item!!  If you don't want to sign up and ship online, of course you can ship these from the post office.  They will cost you 4.95+delivery confirmation (which is .70) for the box, or 4.90+DC for the envelope....so....you are spending almost $1 more to go there, wait in line, and ship in person than you would be online!

You can order these boxes or envelopes for FREE from these links, but they DO take 7-10 days to arrive as they are shipped by parcel post AKA slow boat shipping so be sure to order early!!  Most post offices do stock these or have them in back (they are REALLY pushing the flat rate thing on their website to cut back on foot traffic to the counters), just pick them up in person or ask if they are not out front...again, why waste time when you have them bring them to you by ordering online Smiley  Can you see I love to be self-sufficient?  LOL!

Small Flat Rate Box – Dimensions: 5-3/8” x 8-5/8” x 1-5/8”
http://tinyurl.com/y9994p7

Small Flat Rate Envelope – Dimensions: 12.5" x 9.5"
http://tinyurl.com/yg6swuj

To sign up to do Click n Ship
https://sss-web.usps.com/cns/landing.do

The flat rate envelope would be best suited for larger pieces of fabric, paper and ephemera, embroidery floss, patterns and booklets, or other flatter-type items.  Beads, stamps, yarn, scissors, and other non-flat-type stuff would be best shipped in the small box.  They both would hold about the same amount, one is really just better for paper goods because they will not have to be folded a lot, maybe just cut down a little bit.

Please communicate in the thread or by PM once a week.  If this swap gets VERY large, I will coordinate a weekly check-in PM with my co-organizer to make sure everyone is still out there and plans on sending.

I will do my very best to make sure wants and needs match up the best, but allergies/allergens take precedence to keep us all healthy Smiley

And, the most important rule…..HAVE FUN!!

FYI - The postal store online to order supplies from is down from time to time for whatever reason...the tiny URL links DO work, but the site is busted right now so I cannot double check until it's back up.  Sorry Sad

EDIT - Yes, the links work.  I was able to check them the other day and the site WAS working, so the links take you where you need to go!

I will be joining, but I want to wait til I get in my craft room to decide whether I want to swap with one partner or two.  As soon as I know, I'll get my questionnaire in.

I signed up!  I'd love to send and receive fiber for needle felting and/or spinning.  Is there anyone else who would love to give and/or receive fiber goodness?
