Unless someone steps up to co-organize, it looks like we  may end up closing sign ups early.

kwilty-There are spinners who are ok with shipping internationally. I know that many spinners are intrested in sewn items. Personally, I love sewn things but I'm not so handy with a sewing machine. lol As for what sewn items would equal a skein of yarn, that really depends on: the yardage, technique, and fiber used. I'm sure you could discuss it and clarify things with your partner. Please do join! We only have one more spot left for "Handcrafters".

If i wasn't going to be organizing my first swap soon, i would step up and give it a shot... For now, i think i'd better stick to one at a time.

But hey, early partners! Cheesy

I'm interested in trying this... I could be either, a spinner or a crafter. Though I only just recently learned plying and made a fairly fine 2-ply yarn. I just have to see how much time I have when it gets closer to closing date.

Well, jungrrl, we can totally use more spinners... And it sounds like your wheel is lonely... So, I think the only thing to do is sign up. Cheesy

Tempted. But I have been out of the loop on here for, oh man, years I reckon.  That may make folks nervous.

I did one of the very first Handcrafts for Handspun swaps, the first maybe, not sure.  But it was amazing.  I was a crafter in that one and I have that skien still, that is how precious it was and still is to me.  I kind of want to give back, now that I am an experienced spinner myself.

Hmmm, let me know if you find you need another spinner to balance the numbers.

This is my first swap, so everyday I find myself excitedly checking the posts for new information. I am nervous and thrilled and terrified and inspired. I've been having all kinds of ideas for projects I might do, some beautiful and special thing I'll be able to create for my partner. I am chomping at the bit to get going. Yikes, this is scary! But in a good way. This is exactly the creative jolt I needed to kickstart this year. Thanks Zombie_Queen and everyone else for including me in this adventure...
