I'd really be interested in participating in more swaps with a heavy sewing focus, does anyone have plans to start some?

Some of the ones I've participated in in the past are Craft with a Fat Quarter and the Fabric Basket swaps. Even the Swap a Yard of fabric.

I do other things, but mostly sewing and like to recieve sewn items.

I don't know if I am up for organizing right now, but maybe.

I love sewing swaps as well. I am in the middle of organizing the Givers & Needers swap, so I couldn't organize but I could participate.

I like sewing swaps too. A basket or bag, purse, or wallet would be nice!!  A Hipster bag would be neat! I don't organize sorry.

There was some talk of a Craft with a Fat Quarter swap opening up after the winter holidays, but haven't seen any sign of it yet. Rd 3 of the quilt block swap just opened up (Donniesgirl is organizing). I might be interested in joining a sewing swap. Depends upon whether I'm clear of some other swaps in time and what we're sewing. Hate sewing clothes for other people, but accessories could be fun.

Yea, clothes for the most part would be much too ambitious. I will think on it a bit. The swap I've been co-organizing is winding down and so maybe I would consider organizing something else.

I'm also gonna go search for a thread on the Fat Quarter swap because I really liked that one.

I love the "Craft this tote swap" and "Fabric basket swaps". I loved these because everyone followed the same patter, but nothing looked the same! If we could find an easy pattern for something that many people would use/like - I think that would be fun.

 The very first swap I was ever in was the "make a purse and fill it swap". It was awesome and I would love to do it again. I learned a lot and got an amazing HULK purse from Bugaboo1!
 Here is a link to the one I did:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367539.0
 It was round 6. I am not sure if they have had any since then.

I was in the 'Make a Purse and Fill It' swap as well, and even though I got flaked on I had an AWESOME time, and ended up receiving a MAGNIFICENT angel package from the organizer!

If another round of this swap starts, I am SO in!  Cheesy

AND, the usuable thing (the purse) was filled with more usuable things-like travel tissues, gum, etc...

I'm organizing the Quilt Block Swap, as someone mentioned, and also the Novelty FQ Swap. Both have open sign ups right now.  ETA - oh yoy're in the FQ one already! Smiley

I've done an apron swap in the past. I'd possibly be up for something like a wrap skirt too. And someone was floating the throw pillow covers swap idea a couple months ago but it didn't pan out.

I'm partial to sewing as well. Smiley

I used to sew these rockin' wrap skirts, reversible, when I was a young teen. I would so love to recreate &/or find &/or swap.

I was in the make a purse & fill it. I loved that one!!  Cheesy   I made a shoulder purse & embroidered a elephant on the front & made a small TM bag & a lot of other things. It was my first swap on craftster. I had so much fun. There was a Basket Swap & a Apron swap too. I don't usually do Clothes. I can make them just not as fun. I did make me a poodle skirt once. I think I have reverseable wrap skirt pattern, haven't made it yet.

So, who's up for organizing this wonderful swap?

Easy for me to say, I know.  I don't want to organize it.   Tongue

But I do hope someone will step up to.  If they do, I may consider being co-org, if need be.

It DOES seem like there's a lot of interest in this swap.

I think the fill a purse swap is a great idea but I'm not as into it, just because I am SO picky about the purses I carry but I am thinking that I will organize something else in a few weeks. Possibly the craft with a fat quarter swap or i <3 to sew. I'll keep you all posted.

Hi "littlehajerika" sounds good, we could make a purse & fill it & change it to a bag, or basket like for knitting & crocheting or for sewing supplies & make it out of 1 or 2 flat quarters. Maybe a organizer. Anyway just some Ideas.

Is this still going to happen? Just keeping it going! "littlehajerika" your idea of the craft with a flat quarter sounds interesting. What's the i <3 to sew? Not sure what that is. We could make a wallet out of a flat quarter & maybe a couple of small things. That would be fun!!   Grin

I would be interested in a "Make a purse & fill it" swap. Like littlehajerika, I am picky about the purses I carry, but I always could use reusable shopping bags (my area now has a ban on plastic bags and you have to pay for paper).

Hmm I might be willing to organize the "craft with a fat quarter swap."  I'll have to look the other ones up and see how it was structured!

Or maybe a swap for a needle book/sewing case? hmmm
