Details of swap:

This swap is based on the popular U.S. Fill-A-Box Swap, but this is for UK participants only. I've knicked most of the details from Oops Creations, so a big thank you to her!

The Stash Busting Swap's goal is to provide a (slightly) cleaner craft area by passing along some of your old stash, and getting new-to-you supplies in return!  Simply stuff a 50x30x30cm box with gently-used quality supplies up to 10kg. Feel free to include finished craft items as well, as long as they fit with your partner's likes.  Don't feel the need to run out and buy something as the purpose of this swap is to clean out your existing stash!


We will be using the Collect + service to deliver parcels. Take your parcel to a Collect + store near you and pay 4.49. Parcel can be up to 50x30x30cm and 10kg. Details here: http://www.collectplus.co.uk/about_collectplus.php

If you want to participate, please fill out this information to send to organizer:

Why does it have to be collect+ to participate? I'm just curious because i checked and my nearest one is a rather expensive long bus journey away.

I'm just filling in my form, what sort of supplies are people looking for?? Smiley

I have books on: painting, fillet crochet, stained glass making, glass painting, cookery and probably more when i get a chance to have a good look - does any of that float anyone's boat?

we're using collect + because it's the cheapest way to send a large parcel to a large region of the uk. if you were to post a 10kg packet through royal mail it would cost you over 12, versus the 4.60 collect + charges.
