Details of swap:
This is a handspun yarn and handpainted fiber swap intended for spinners only! No store-bought or second-hand swapping allowed; you will custom spin/paint your yarn/fiber specially for your partners. Rather than setting a limit for yardage, weight, or cost, it will be up to you, the swapper, to work out the details with your partners after you have been paired up based on what you each can afford and what areas you specialize in.
There is a full two-week sign up period (since there are few of us, we want to give everyone a chance to find this thread) and three weeks to make your goodies (to make sure we can all order our supplies and get the job done in a comfortable amount of time). I will ask you to rate your skill level in the questionnaire; please be honest. I promise you won't get shafted just because you admit to being a beginner. All skill levels are encouraged to join, and you are allowed to swap with multiple people.
