I'd love to do a "trims" swap--usable lengths of ribbon, lace, beaded trim, rickrack, satin blanket binding, etc.

I agree on the trims swap...fun little goodies (i'm a ribbon addict) and very cheap and easy to mail.

Once I am done signing people up for a handbag swap, I will start a trim swap for you guys. In a few weeks or so, maybe we can start a fabric swap??

If anyone wants to volunteer to start one, they can PM me with their ideas, and we can discuss how it will work! I don't want to have a millions swaps going on at a time, because I think it will a)be too much for the organizer/organizers (if they do more than one) and b) too much everyone participating! We wouldn't want anyone to get mixed up and send a handbag to a music swap person, and some trim to someone who wanted a tshirt!!

A fabric swap would be cool, as would a trim/scrap item swap...  Off the top of my head there is several ways I can think of doing it...

I'd be willing to help or at least brainstorm with anyone who wants to run this....

this is regarding the idea about swap budgeting, and forgive me if this doesn't belong here...

to my mind, swapping doesn't--shouldn't--require going out and spending money; i think of it was a way to use up or change out supplies i already have and might not (or might) otherwise use.

as for swaps like the handbag swap, well, perhaps you might not have a special notion (etc.) and have to buy that.  but i still think the point of this sort of thing (and here i mean making things in general) isn't to go out and buy more stuff, it's to use what you already have resourcefully and creatively.

i don't mean that setting a budget is a bad idea; i only mean that, by my understanding, a budget shouldn't even be necessary.  i definitely hear the concern about not exchanging things of "equal" value, but isn't the point of handmade things at least in part that the value is in the work?  ostensibly, all the handmade things here that are to be exchanged will be of very good quality...so does it matter if i end up spending 15 dollars to make something to send to you, and you make what you send me with stuff you had lying around and a new zipper, for a total cost of 2.00 or something?

hope i haven't offended anyone by this.

hope i haven't offended anyone by this.

I'm not even concerned about that aspect of the trades. I've noticed in previous trades that some people sent several things while others sent just one. I would never have thought to send more than one item. And now that I'm participating in my first trade, I think it would be helpful to have some more guidelines.
I just want to make sure that I've met the expectations of the person receiving my gift.

btw, no offense taken.
