This is a shout out to all fibre loving people -

The idea of the swap is for spinners, felters, and other general fibre artists to swap their stash - and that includes media other than wool tops.
Eg
synthetic fibre, cotton tops, spun yarns, silk tops, handmade fibre, etc etc

Whatever you like to do with it (spin, felt, weave, etc) I'm sure you've got excess stuff you'd like to get rid of, and would love to recieve something different. This is especially good if you've got a huge amount of one color and you just want to mix it up a little.
send a little, recieve a little, you get the picture  Wink


Swap name: Fibre stash swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Jane Doe
Sign-up date range: 1st May -> 10th May
Date to send item by: 17th May (only 1 week because there is not a lot of preparation for this swap)

This swap isn't limited to a certain number of people
Seeing I'm Aussie, Non-U.S. participants are allowed
All ages are allowed
Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions


If you want to participate, IM this survey to me:

Name of swap: Fibre stash swap

Craftster username

Email address
Mailing address
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside of your country?
Are you willing to be a swap angel if needed to be?

Do you spin, felt, weave, other?

Fibres you would like:
Colors you like:

Fibres you would dislike:
Colors you dislike:

If you already have an idea of the fibre you'd like to send, please describe it (color + type)

Approx how much fibre would like to send?
a) 100grams (3.53oz)
b) 250grams (8.8oz)
c) 450grams (1pound)
d) 680grams (1.5pounds)
e) 800grams (1.75pounds)
f) 1kilo (2.2 pounds)
g) more/other -> specify
(depending on the answers to this survey, you might be paired up to swap less fibre than you indicate here, but not more)

Would you like to prepare a introduction kit for your partner?
If you answered yes, you *might* be making a kit in this swap depending if there is a suitable partner for you. The following 2 questions are for those who answered yes
    -What types of kits could you make?
    -If you make a kit in your swap, do you
                                a) require a kit in return
                                b) prefer a kit in return
                                c) not like a kit in your package
                                d) not mind what was sent to you

Anything else you would like your partner to know?



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.

While we're having sign-ups, I though it might be fun to share different pics of our stash.

Here's a fibre rainbow I made with my fibre last time I stocked up Smiley



I've already shown off this pic in the pre-signups discussion so I've got one more for you.
Golly gosh I wish this was my stash, but it's my supplier's stash pic.

Isn't it gorgeous?

Go on people.
Large or small, show us your stash!

As much as I'd love to be part of this I dont think I can.

I do needle felting and recently started knitting but I only have a tiny amount of merino, not even enough to be called a stash lol.

Dont know what I could offer, unless I could put together a tiny needle felting kit.

Hmmm, will have to give it some thought.

Perfectly fine by me!

There are questions in the survey so I can try match people as to what they would like, and what they would like to send.

I'm sorry if I haven't made this part clear.... I'll go add it to the bulk of this email
