Swap name: Bead Soup Again
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: mrs.benjimadden
Sign-up date range:  February 19th- March 5th
Date to send item by:  March 29th

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): nope

Non-U.S. participants allowed? yep

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  Everybody has those beads they don't really want or those beads they know they will never use, but you know someone else could use them.  So here's your chance to get rid of them.  Gather up beads and findings and fill a snack size ziplock bag, this is just a minimum you can send more if you like. These can be beads leftover from other projects, beads you have never found use for, or beads that you have lots of.  The idea is for these "bead soup" packages to inspire new projects for whoever receives the beads!  Try to include a mix of things - not all seed beads or all plastic beads or whatever.



If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap:  Bead soup again
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of the US?
Beads you absolutely don't want:


IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

What are the measurements on a snack size ziploc bag?

Yeah I tried to find this when I was typing up the detials for the swap but I couldn't find it, I am going to guess its about 7 inches by 3 inches.

If anybody knows the real measurements feel free to post them.

Oh wow, this sounds fantastic. I'm gonna think about joinging for a few days, though, because I'm already involved in 2 other swaps. But seriously, putting together a small packgage of beads shouldn't take too long...
