Swap name: Ongoing Fabric Swap II
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: loves2experiment
Sign-up date range: Ongoing
Date to send items by: Seven (7) days after someone claims from your list!
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope.  The more the merrier!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Absolutely!
All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 16!)
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: Yes, and Yes!




DETAILS OF SWAP:

If youve got stashes of fabric hidden in your craft boxes, this is the swap for you Smiley 

For each claim, you will get to select a total of 1/2 yard of fabric (in the form of two (2) fat quarters OR a half yard piece).  In return, you will then be required to make a post with a minimum of eight fabric swatches that you have available for someone else to claim.   

This is what went on in the first round of this swap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=87438.0

Ready to play?  Please read the following sections on 'HOW TO PLAY' and 'RULES' for this swap before signing up to get approved for this swap!




HOW TO PLAY:

Step 1.  Send in your answers to the swap questionnaire to get approved for this swap Smiley

Step 2.  Prepare your lists of fabric swatches so that youll be ready to post the list when you make a claim!  Youll need a minimum of eight fabric swatches!!!  Along with the pictures, you should describe the type and clearly specify the quantity of fabric that youre offering!  For example:

1.   Brown and Turquoise Cotton Batik.  1/2 Yard Piece.
2.   Lime Green Silk.  Fat Quarter.
3.   Purple Cotton/Polyester Blend.  Fat Quarter or 1/2 Yard Piece.
4.   Fun Fur Type Fabric.  Fat Quarter.
5.   Silver Vinyl.  Fat Quarter.
6.   Vintage Japanese Kimono.  Fat Quarter.
7.   Pink Cotton Flannel.  1/2 Yard Piece.
8.   Yellow Wool Felt.  Fat Quarter or 1/2 Yard Piece.

Step 3.  Watch the swap thread for something youll like to claim.  To claim, post a reply along the lines of I claim swatches #2 and 6 from love2experiments stash.  Follow-up by sending a pm to the person you chose from.  Let her know what youve selected and provide her with your name and mailing address. 

Step 4.  Now that youve made a claim, its your turn to post your list of fabric swatches!  If the thread idles for a couple of hoursor days, please take the initiative to add more selections to your list!  When someone chooses from your list, you have seven (7) days to get the swap package out the door!

Step 5.  If you have not maxed out on the number of claims you have been approved for, you may keep on claiming.  If you have reached your limit, you will not be able to make another claim until one of your partners has received a swap package from you.





RULES:

1.  You may not participate in this swap until you have been pre-approved by the swap organizer.  Please wait until youre listed on the List of Approved Swappers before making a claim!  If youre watching this swap thread and thinking about participating, youre more than welcome to pm me to get pre-approved.  By doing so, youll be ready to make a claim when you see something you like Smiley

2.  If you participated in the Ongoing Fabric Swap, please make sure that youve sent out all your packages for that swap (i.e. the packages should either have been received by your partners or are on their way to your partners) before signing up for the Ongoing Fabric Swap II.     

3.  You must have ready access to a camera and know how to post pictures in the swap thread.  Please make sure you have your list (either links or pictures) of fabrics available when you start swapping!  You will need to have a minimum of eight fabric swatches in your posts.  If youre posting pictures, please make sure that you showcase pictures in groups of 4s (i.e. post 2 images, if you have 8 fabric swatches).  You may also choose the option of posting links to your fabric swatches.  If you do that, please make sure that your links work!   

4.  All participants must be willing to ship to international destinations.  Since were only sending a total of 1/2 yard of fabric, shipping costs should be pretty reasonable.
 
5.  After a claim has been made, you have seven (7) days to mail your package!  Check out the second post of this swap thread to get an idea of when your swap packages are due.

6. Delivery Confirmation Numbers will be required for swap packages that are being sent within the United States.  I'm will be pretty firm about this rule!  If youre sending a package to another country, or if you dont reside in the United States, please save your receipts!  Remember to send the DCN info to your swap partner(s) and the organizer (that would be me, loves2experiment)! 

Shipping Tip For US Residents (courtesy of kategirl): The USPS requires that the package measures at least thick for a DCN.  If your package is too flat, it might be necessary to bulk up the package with a couple of plastic grocery bags to get the DCN!

7.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  When you have received, you must inform your partner and the organizer!!  If you are late, you need to pm your partner and the swap organizer ASAP.  You are still responsible for sending out the swap package in a timely manner!  A blatant disregard for deadlines will result in a "sent late" comment in your swap profile.   
 
8. Okay.  This is not really a rule, but rather a request.  Please be considerate and offer fabric selections that others would want to claim.  Try to include a variety of fabrics in your lists (e.g. not ALL vintage fabric, because some people like vintage fabric, while others dont).  Its common sense, really!  Another good rule of thumb to follow is this: If you're offering a piece of fabric to "simply get rid of it", that's probably not a good thing!!





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

*Prods* Grin

You know the old adage, one man's meat is another man's poison, well, you might have stuff lurking at the bottom of your cupboard that is no good to you, but super to someone else.  I always felt I had not-good fabric up for grabs, but people always found stuff from my stash that they were happy with, and I didn't hold up the swap for excessive periods.
