If you have too many stockings already but would still like to take part in a Christmas stocking swap then this might be your thing!  The Cozy Toes for Christmas Swap.

~*This swap is for 1 medium item (2 or more hours crafting time)
***Please note that while many folks in the swap will celebrate Christmas, this swap is open to EVERYONE and swappers are welcome to ask for Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or other other holiday themes if they prefer.***

~*One thing you will HAVE to include in your package is some item to keep feet warm - socks, slippers or similar. These don't have to be handmade. Then add stocking stuffer type items.


~*You can Invite Your Own Partners!  If you have your eye on a Craftster you'd love to swap with, you are welcome to ask if they would like to partner with you.  Please remember that people may refuse for any number of reasons, and that is totally okay.  Perhaps they already have a partner, or they have asked someone else.  If they do accept, you must BOTH send a PM to Inselaeffchen, declaring your wish to be partners.  

IMPORTANT NOTES  
-Since this is a holiday swap, if you have not sent by 3 days past Sendouts, you will get temporary negative feedback.  It is sad to not to receive your holiday parcel during holiday time.  This temporary negative will be reversed when your partner receives.  
-If you do not have an IYP partner, and I am pairing for you, that will be done by random draw (with appropriate attention to allergies and shipping given.
-BE SURE TO READ THIS ENTIRE POST.  There is a secret password within this post, to help ensure that you read all of the information.  You must include this pass phrase in your questionnaire in order to join the swap.

 Do you love making Teesha Moore-style patches? Have you always admired them but haven't yet caught the TM bug? Well, this could be the swap for you!

In this round of the TM Patch Swap, you will be crafting for 1 or 2 partners (first time swappers will be limited to 1 partner) and from 1-3 patches (you and your partner should agree on the exact number).

Also, you will have the option of exchanging a TM Patch Supply kit with your partner (contents of kit may include: floss, fabric, embellishments {buttons, beads, ribbons, charms, etc}, poly-fil, etc.).

Let's keep this swap simple and limit it to the sending of patches and kits (if you love sending extra things, consider adding those as part of a kit  Smiley ).

There are lots of inspirational patches from previous swaps, so check out some of the galleries here:

We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Everyone must post in the swap thread when they sign up as a swapper, and there will be weekly checkins every week in the thread!  It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap and you will be paired accordingly.  Sometimes there will be an odd number, so please note if you are willing to do (for example) Small or Medium or maybe Medium or Large or work with a 3-way swap.

                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however, a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap.

10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Fandom in Stitches Paper Pieced Block Swap? on: February 27, 2018 02:44:26 AM
Ok, I've seen quilt block swaps in the past, but not one of those.

I'm an absolutely "Fan girl/woman" of many different Fandoms, and I absolutely am addicted to Fandom In Stitches.

Was wondering if there would be enough interest to make a block swap for paper pieced blocks from their website? Could be any fandom they have on there.

Let's see if there are enough interested fandom people out there to make a swap.
