Hi all!
i've been taking part in a few international swaps and whilst its all fun , the costs are adding up!
i was thinking perhaps we could have an australian swap. [interstate and all]

to make things easier [cos everyone likes different things or does different crafts] i thought we could try citing 5 things we can offer each and we can intertrade from there?

does that make sense?
hope to hear from some of you!

Edit: check out the latest posts where ppl have begun to list the stuff they are willing to trade. if you want to take part, choose from the latest list [ie the one where no one has chosen from] and list what you want and the 5 things you can offer.
please PM the person you are choosing the stuff from your address.

Okies,    Cheesy

Well I guess I would be willing to put these 5 things into the swap:

one of my handmade handbags
a number of my round snaps
a number of my square snaps
a bag full of trims
1m of fabric

or, you can go to http://www.sarah1980.com/swap.htm.

bittenbefore, I guess you will take the role as the "official organiser" for this swap?  Smiley

I have realised I don't have a heap to swap at the moment, cause all my friends keep getting pregnant and I am snowed under crafting for new borns!

But, I do have:
- a pair of homemade knitting needles
- one of my bags
- 10 pairs of hair elastics with different beads
- stacked star candles
- knitted scarf

(Sarah I PM'ed you too)

Ooh...

Okay. 5 things I can swap:

1. a little bag, which has lovely silver and gold starry stuff on the outside;
2. A stitch 'n' bitch roll your own needlecase with your name embroidered on it;
3. a broderie anglaise peasant top like the pink one on this thread http://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=7;action=display;threadid=4094 (you would have to give me a couple of measurements)
4. A rad big tote bag, dark blue with marvellous cherubs on it, lined, with a little puch inside (ideal for knitters)
5. Racking my brain, can't think of anything else.


Any takers?
