6951  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Fabric Swap on: April 05, 2006 05:38:36 AM
NOTE: The following edit has been added to the first post of this swap (after Rule #7).



Edit:  There have been questions about what types of fabrics are acceptable.  I have posted a comment here.  There is really no hard or fast rule for this.  Some people like vintage fabric, and others don't.  It would be easy enough to make the rule that all fabric pieces have to be NEW.  I won't do that.  Instead, I ask that all swap participants be considerate and offer fabric selections that others would want to claim.  Make sure that you're offering a variety (i.e. not ALL vintage pieces).  Another good rule of thumb to follow is this: If you're offering a piece of fabric to "simply get rid of it", it's probably not a good thing!!  Similarly, if you're looking to trade junk for treasure, that's not a good thing either!!  Like I've mentioned before, it's common sense...really.

Whenever I get to pick again (soon I hope!) can I offer up a clean pair of jeans as a FQ choice?

I didn't realise pillowcases were acceptable!  I'll potter through my pillowcase stack tonight some time and update my list.

I'm alright with that, as long as you're able to offer an equivalent of a FQ or 1/2 yard piece from that pillowcase Smiley  Be sure to state clearly that the fabric piece will come from a pillowcase.  Some folks would consider that vintage material, and then there are folks who would not like to receive fabric pieces that are 'repurposed'.  If you plan on offering vintage material, please make sure that the fabric is clean before sending it to your partner! 

Same response to the question about 'clean jeans as FQ'. 

Having said that, please do not offer vintage pieces as your only fabric options for claim!  When you're posting fabric choices, try to offer a variety of fabric selections (vintage, new, cottons, flannels, polyester blends, silks, etc.).  If the swap idles for a day or so, the last person who posted should add to the list of fabrics they are offering.

I received from raindrops and will post pics later. Thank you raindrops. I'm planning to make a bag from one of the fabrics!

Good heavens.  Yet another crafter that actually uses her fabric stash instead of hoarding it Tongue  I feel like such a slacker!  Wink  Can't wait to see more wonderful fabrics!

Melladh, it already feels like I'm here 24/7 Roll Eyes  I guess I'm a chatterbox, and I like getting to know new folks Cheesy 

I don't have a problem doing frequent updates, and I was trying to find a solution that would ease the situation Smiley  Of course, I'm human...and if I fall behind, I hope everyone understands that I'm trying my best!

Just a suggestion and you don't have to take it- Its really hard to tell who the last person to choose from is because of all the chatter. Can we not talk so much and delete the posts so that we don't have to search and figure out who is up? Sorry if I'm being picky but it seems like it would be easier.

Part of the fun of swapping, is getting to interact with your fellow swappers Cheesy  It'll be hard to try to get everyone to clam up Tongue  Myself included  Embarrassed  But I see your point about how it might be frustrating trying to find out who's stash is up for grabs Smiley 

I update the sent/received post (ref. 1st page of the swap) pretty frequently.  Whenever I do an update, would it help if I listed a page number next to the person who last made a claim???  I will list a page number next to the name of the person who last made a claim Smiley  Happy swapping!

The clutches in this swap gallery are gorgeous Smiley  I'd love to join Round 2 if there's one Cheesy

Ooh they're beautiful! Your photography skills don't suck loves2experiment, you lined them up neatly! I was so excited at my 1st swap package from nushy I just took a photo of them in a pile Embarrassed hehe

rosali, what I meant to say, was that I failed to capture the true colors of the fabrics Tongue  Perhaps I need a better camera *cheers up at prospect of having to buy a new gadget*

LOL, I'm being a good girl today, all I have is some mult-vitamin juice Tongue

Although I told myself I wouldn't look at this thread again until one of my parcels has been recieved by someone...so as you can see that is going really well as I am quite obviously here right now Tongue Tongue

There ain't no harm in lookin', right Wink  Goodgrief.  It has just occured to me that we're all purveyors of fabric porn Tongue

That's one of my favourite pieces too.  Yep, aside from hoarding fabrics, I also have a thing for shoes  Roll Eyes 

Whatcha snacking on this evening, MissMeshell?   Wink
