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 $5.00 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 5.20+delivery confirmation (which is .70) for the box, or 4.95+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!!

I love this swap!  I always feel like I am cleaning stuff up when I send and then remember when I receive that I just re-added everything back!  I also need to learn to be less selfish with my beads if I am partnered with a beader this round!

Thank you to everyone that has signed up so far, please make sure you you post in the thread at least once a week through signups and up until you send out to your partner(s).  Also, please make sure you are sending your questionnaire to BOTH myself and lindyv321 so we can both keep our records updated as we go Smiley

Sooo....what are everyone's have's and want's?? 

I HAVE: fabric, buttons, possibly some patterns, thread and other notions, a few jewelry and bead items, other sewing-related goodies, and who knows what else I will find!  Anything I choose to include will be either jewelry or sewing related in some way, though.

I WOULD LIKE: more fabric Wink  I'm looking for specific items: flannel (for a rag quilt, FQ size would be great!),  corduroy-any lengths, quilter's cottons in cute/food/retro/hippie prints-any lengths, canvas and duck cloth.  I'm always in need of sewing machine needles, MORE BUTTONS!, beads, and silver jewelry findings and chain especially eye pins, zippers, grommets, thread, no-roll elastic (1/2", 1", and 1.5" wide), Velcro, magnetic snaps, D rings, and ribbon.

No need for any kids craft items or knit or crochet goodies, as I don't have kids and don't know how to knit or crochet.

Darn it my home computer is acting stupid again so i,ll have to wait to send inmy questionnaire.  Thesaphiremoon i could so hook you up with the jewlery findings. I have a rediculous amount of jewlery making items.

My wants are cute fabric, i really like making cute headbands so anything that would work for that. Anything embroidery. Need floss, would love some of the more facny stuff like metalic and verigated. No cross stitch stuff, i dont do cross stitch. Would like to get back into working with fimo clay so anything to do with that craft.

What i have to offer is fabrics. Jewlery making items, lots of beads and charms. Also have a huge stack of cross stitch booklets someone was nice enough to give me, they are wonderfully but i dont do cross stitch. Also have a huge stack of vintage patterns that go all the way back to the fifties.
