I was on another craft swap community board and I saw a post that mentioned a swap where you would send someone something of your best work.  For example, I'm really good at spinning yarn, so I would send a handspun skein.  Or if someone was good at scrapbooking they could send a completed page, etc.  Is anyone interested in something like that?  I think it would be exciting because you wouldn't really know what you were going to get.

OOOH!! That sounds AWESOME! I'd love to make a lovely mini quilt or cross-stitch for someone, since those are what I do best   Smiley
  I hope this gets off the ground. It would have the best gallery EVER!  Cheesy

I'm interested.  I think making stuffed animals is what I'm best at.

That sounds fun!  I'm also best at sewing.  Maybe making cards, though.  I do clothes, bags, greeting cards.. That would be fun.  It's always nice to be able to send something you're confident in.

I like the sound of this.  I'm best at sewing with knits and making lingerie, hopefully someone is up for that!

I'm really glad this is generating some interest!  I'd say I'm best at spinning yarn and knitting.  I think if this swap happens we would probably do it by point system (maybe 5 points?) or just make one large.

I think one large would be good.  I just mentioned making stuffed animals is what I'm best at.  I could be paired w/somebody who wanted a stuffed animal, and then my parnter could maybe knit or crochet a stuffed animal for me?  I know I would be over the moon to receive a large knitted or crocheted lemur.  I even found a free pattern for one!  I always see these adorable knitted and/or crocheted stuffed animals that I drool over, but, I cannot knit or crochet to save my life.  Sad
