Hello just signed up to craftster Smiley love upcycling, making sock bunnies and plush toys. Basic skills in crochet, sewing and felting, hoping to improve these Cheesy

Really interested in doing the crafts swaps, any tips on things to do in the month before I can join one? Am I best to start up a Pinterest? Already have a big collection of material, beads and craft items for a whimsie swap.

Any advice appreciated

Hi Scrapkatt, and welcome!  Yes, starting a Pinterest is a wonderful idea, it will be very helpful to your future swap partners. While you wait for your month to be up, you might find a craft-along to join here:

Craft-alongs are similar to swaps in that everyone is making something with the same theme, but instead of sending it away, you get to keep it!  You also get to have fun interaction with the other crafters in the group thread.
