Can I sign up if I only have fabric, and no yarn to send?  And I could send several different fabric scraps (of usable size) to add up to the 1.5 yards, correct?

This is a fabric for fabric swap, yarn for yarn swap or fabric/yarn, yarn/fabric. So.. whatever is fine.
I cannot answer to the fabric scrap question, but I'm sure kat will.

This may just be a dumb Canadian asking, but how long is a yard? Anyone know the metric conversion? I only understand meters.

Sorry, I should have thought of that

1 yard = 0.9144 meter

I make allot of small items, and use allot of small pieces. I can use small pieces of fabric. I was thinking like 1/4 of a yd. Nothing smaller, though I do have 1/8s lying around. What is the consensis on this? I would hate to disappoint my partner, but I would love to get small pieces myself. I guess partner communication will be key on this one.
