Fiber swap!

I'm not sure if I've missed one recently or it just hasn't happened, but I wanted to see if there is any interest in swapping some fiber for spinning (or felting)?

I was thinking maybe sign ups could be beginning of October?  Or earlier if there is enough interest.

I know in the past there has been different types of fiber swaps, such as colors from pictures, or you could send wool or exotic fibers.  Any other ideas would be great!

In my area we don't get a lot of fiber festivals, and there are hardly any knitting/fiber shops.  And plus, who doesn't like getting presents in the mail?! I know I get sick of just bills and junk mail! lol

Yes!! It seems like it has been forever since the last fiber swap!

Also, that fiber picture makes me drool a little bit...

UF, we miss ya too!  Stop by the current thread (round 53!) and say hi! 

When's the fiber swap happening?  I wouldn't mind it being earlier than October!  Things kinda get crazy right around Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years Tongue

Yes. I could use more homespun yarn.  This is the last swap of this type I was in. Check it out. We are overdue for another swap. I had fun in round 4. Would love a round 5.

There has not been a round 3 of this swap yet either. I would be up for October signups for this swap.

if it's just a fiber for fiber swap, sooner rather than later.
if it's a fiber/handspun for handcrafts I can't sign up until at least beginning of August.

I was hoping to do just a fiber for fiber swap
