This sounds super fun, if I get a couple of swaps cleared before sign ups are over I might try this one. Smiley

Hey Fiber People: I am very interested in personal swaps for painted/dyed roving or top. I can swap supplies or crafted items. Let's talk!

So, how many kits does each person make/recieve?  I really want to participate but need a little more details.  Maybe I should read the previous rounds details?  Thanks!

I signed up!

I assumed it was one kit. You get one kit, and send one kit. Of course, I could have misread that. So, please correct me if I'm wrong!

bluwave, I got your PM on this one...but I don't know if I know how to do a craft that someone else would want to know how to do?  I wouldn't want to sign up and then have someone not be interested in learning/already knows how to do one of the few crafts I know.

I think hemp jewelry with 2 simple patterns, and 1 or 2 more advanced patterns would be the best kit I could make with great confidence and good tips and tutorial.  I also have a booklet I could photocopy and include with even MORE patterns...I would have to find it, I am not sure where I stuck it.  AND...I have TONS of great beads and findings, glass pendants, etc!!!  Smiley

Is anyone interested in getting a DIY hemp anklet/necklace kit?  If so, I will sign up, double time!

I am sure there will be someone who will want to learn how to make hemp jewelry or any other craft you can do. I know how to make hemp jewlery, but for Someone who wants to learn to make jewelry this is the place to start.
Hemp Jewelry is fun and addictive. Grin

Most crafters are open to trying new things, even if they already know how. It is fun to learn new techniques.

I just sent in my info!

Does anyone out there want to learn some bookbinding?  (I hope so!)  I'm a trained book conservator/bookbinder so I could do a kickass bookbinding kit.  But I also sew, knit, crochet (thread only), and embroider.

What I'd love most to learn to do is shuttle tat.  That's my dream craft and I've not had much luck learning on my own, so a mentor would be great.  But I'd also love to learn stuff like polymer clay, soap making, resin, and anything that's a little off the beaten path.
