7041  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap 8 -- Swap On!! on: March 30, 2006 08:45:46 AM
If you had been able to fulfil one of SewMuch4Kids' wishes, I'm sure she would have been totally spoiled by you Smiley  Anyhow, aren't you supposed to be working your magic with the FOC2 projects?!? Wink

Stifflersmom, this is hilarious.  Not too long ago, you kept getting shafted because folks were beating you out for claims.  And now that nobody's beating you to it, you're maxed out with your claims?!?  Oh my Wink

Great job loves2experiment, thanks so much for taking this on, I'm sure it will be fabulous fun! Smiley The thread looks great and easy to understand the rules and what-not.

I've cleaned up and sorted my stash while waiting for this swap (amazing I know Tongue) so now I've just got to take piccies and I'll PM you for pre-approval within a few days! *yay*

MissMeshell, thanks for your feedback Smiley  It took me a little longer than anticipated to put together everything to get the swap started.  I'm psyched to do this!!!  I'm also trying to sort out my stash for more possibiilties to post.  I already have eight to start with!

7046  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Ongoing Fabric Swap on: March 29, 2006 07:45:31 PM
Swap name: Ongoing Fabric Swap
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!


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.   

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!


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 make 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.


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.  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!   

3.  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.
4.  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.

5. 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!

6.  It is important to communicate with your partners and the organizer.  When you have received, please remember to 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.   
7. Okay.  This is not really a rule, but rather a request.  Please make sure to list fabrics that you would be pleased to receive.  Its common sense, really!     

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!!

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


Name of swap: Ongoing Fabric Swap
Craftster username:
Email address:
Your real name:
Mailing address:
Have you read the rules for this swap and understood how this swap works?

I love the ruffley purse.  What's in the handles to make them stand up like that?

Cute bounce bounce (bunny) too.

Thanks, qazicat Smiley  I encased the rubber tubing handles in fabric.  The guy at the hardware store gave me the weirdest look when I told him what I was using it for Tongue

Gashlycrumb Tinies Candle

Crimson, the Bunny

Ruffled Tote

Thanks again, kircaldy!

So far, we've had two people receive Cheesy  If you've not checked out the gallery, you're missing out on the lovely FQs I received from A_Patchwork_Orange Smiley  Updates on who has sent and/or received may be viewed in the first post of this thread!
