I read this post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51668.0

And realized there may be lots of craftsters who lost their supplies. If somebody would be intersted in organizing a swap where we send out supplies to craftsters who lost them, that would be nice.
We all have boxes full of supplies that didn't work for us, or we haven't gotten to, I have piles of lace scraps, and lots of neckties. I also have some clay I could part with and lots of fabric scraps.

Does this sound like a good idea?
Would anyone be interested in organizing it? (I don't meet the qualifications)
Are there enough craftsters without supplies who would be interested in getting gifts like this?  I will be happy to participate if somebody wants to organize it.

i think this sounds like a really neat idea, but it should probably wait a little while. as much as we all love crafting, they probably have other priorities right now! (and besides, is there even postal service in all the areas affected? i kinda doubt it)

if there are people who are interested in sending, and people who are interested in recieving, i'd be willing to organize, maybe in a month or so?

i think the timing would have to be flexible, until we see how quickly people are able to rebuild and get settled again.

this is a fabulous and generous idea! i think we should def. wait a while. all the displaced people have nowhere to craft anyway.  i have a lot of stuff i'd be willing to part with. i just have way too much craft stuff and not enough time to work on them.

definitely a great idea... i'd be pretty lost without all my stuff, let alone everything else being lost in one sweep. i think this sounds like a fantastic idea, but like crafty_dame said, perhaps it should wait a little while. let these people be with their families and friends and slowly get back into creating life again... definitely taking into consideration the fact that it will take a long time for homes to return to being homes. keep me updated if something happens?
