welcome kwiltykate!
adding you now!
and everyone watching this thread please signup soon
i was wondering maybe something isnt appealing
is the size too big
should we offer for people to go in for sending justonesmall thing or justonemediumthing?

ooh i see you make fabric boxes kwiltykate i always meant to try that
and you do quilts cool!
do you make placemats?
should i open the swap up and just match aussies?
signups are short do i need to extend them?
does sendouts need to be extended?
ok let me know people!

and aussies are australian residents..... its slang....oi oi oi

I haven't posted enough yet to join this swap, but if you did a similar swap in future, would you consider including Kiwis?

Post by: Serenthia on April 04, 2010 06:43:21 PM
I shall be signing up very soon! I'll have to get my wist up to date :)

I think it probably should include NZ people! I'd be happy to send to a Kiwi in an Aussie swap anyway, I've always thought of NZ as part of Australia. Thats just me though, I hope that doesnt offend people that are from NZ :)

What about that offending the Australians :P

Just kidding

cyndiq, I wouldnt change anything... It may just be that it's Easter weekend and a lot of people go away for it. I'm sure there will be more sign ups by the end of the week :)

Apparently.... there are provisions in the Australian Constitution to include NZ, should they ever decide to become part of Australia.

I wish I could sign up... But Im currently doing my first swap! Im going to send this week actually but I doubt they would get it and I'd get my positive feedback before the sign-ups finish :(

I used to be a New Zealander.. lol (well by that I mean I was born there and grew up here and have Australian citizenship)

Just sent my PM.

If its just the 3 of us, you might get stuck with me again schnerby :P

It's ok - I'm working on your stuff now and quite enjoying it.


I wouldn't open it to New Zealand though, sorry NZers. If it's Aus only we can use domestic postage bags and just chuck them in a street postal box instead of going to the post office and doing all the international junk. Sure, it would be cheaper than posting to the USA all the time, but kind of defeats the purpose.

welcome to Nicc79

i checked out your profile and your sewing skills look awesome!loving the patchwork!


btw schnerby we all will still need a reciept or registered post number to ensure i know you posted in the event of a parcel going missing in action. but i agree local postage will be so much cheaper even express would be cheaper lol
but i know the prepaid 3kg bags will be $10 or less
depending on where you post to in australia

anyhow maybe another round can be international but match up people in countries who prefer the cheaper post

all good swapper we now have 5 participants
yay!

so all aussies watching this thread please pm me if you want to join
and please post on this thread so we can all get to know each other and keep this thread bumping up!  ;D

one comment everyone so far seems to like blue!lol

We just think of you lot as living in the West Island of NZ.  :)

I totally understand about the postage issue. Perhaps if you are short one person and someone is willing to post to NZ, I could join to make up numbers? I'm sure I will make enough posts by the deadline. Otherwise, no doubt there'll be other swap opportunities.

Have pm'd my partners :)

I got my $40 spotlight voucher today too!! Was a great deal, spend $100 only pay $60 woo hoo... I bought heaps of fabrics, zippers, and some paints. Final total ended up being $99.73, had to throw in a cheap thread spool to tip me over the 100 :P

Kids on holidays this week, and I'm finishing off 2 other swaps before I start this one (well, trying to but I have sooo many ideas!)

Im not on youtube, but will add you to my facebook cyndiq

I got my voucher too, but oh my.... I don't think I could justify buying another $100 worth of stuff, when I've yet to use up all the stuff that's overwhelmed my living space.

Though... overlockers.... Hmmm.....

Got my partner, profile looks fine.

I WANT to use mine, but don't think I can afford it right now. Plus I have no room.

Im fortunate enough to work from home in a sewing related business, so fabric doesnt last too long around here! Forever visiting Spotlight for stuff I have forgotten to order.  I make baby gifts and blankets, cute stuff but I love it!

Just trying to find the right 'blue' fabric for my project, then hopefully start it next week x

if you dont have blue green or purple or black is good too kate

yes i went to have a look and i realized you cant buy anything on clearance. 
they have those knitting looms on sale and sale items are ok
anyone used those the book showed making hats and scarves even
but i dont think i really need it
lol
we need a floor mat but they were $229 so it would be a b it much right now i think
i will go back to morrow and have another wander

I am on Spotlight boycott, so I shop at Lincraft, Clegs or independant shops. I also have a stupidly large stash, so I need to get in to that.

This weekend will be a big crafty one as I finish Kwitlykate's package for another swap and make Cyndiq's thingo for this one.

I was on Spotlight boycott.... until they opened a store about 500m away from my front door.

Now I just try to spend less money there, and more money at some of the other leeeetle craft shops I know.

I wish I had more choice when it comes to craft shopping, but we pretty much only have Spotlight down here and thats depressing. Whats this $40 off voucher? I didnt get anything in the mail :( Must be a mainland only thing.... yet again. -_-

Anyhoot, I've been stalking my partner, crafting shall begin soon :)

Oooh that would make it tough! The easiest place for me to shop is the city as I pass through to and from work. That means Clegs and Lincraft are my staples. If Spotlight was nextdoor I would have a stash 20 times bigger than what I have now. Oh, and no money in the bank.


I'm done crafting for this swap. I made something but it didn't meet the size guidelines. I made something else and now I'm happy.

All is well. Off to curl up with my book.

I looked at my stash on the weekend. It is absolutely ridiculous at the moment, all stuffed into the end of the garage.  :-\  Stash-busting swap anyone??

On a more positive note, most of the materials for this swap came out of the stash. Three components complete, final component well underway, putting them together very simple, so should be done pretty soon!

Hope things are looking up soon, starmumplus. Ouch.


I like that I don't have to wait 2 weeks for things to arrive. I don't like that it mow means I expect instant postage. I find myself annoyed that it's taking 3 days. Such impatience!
