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?

Just an update - I've now sent all my requests out (I think) - if I've overlooked anyone please let me know!

Thanks once again glitterbug for your excellent knitting needle roll. I'm still admiring it and thinking how cool it is to see my name embroidered on something Smiley

Can't wait to see what everone else will send me in return!
