Details of swap:

This swap is all about Spring Cleaning your Craft Stash.  You'll get a (slightly) cleaner craft area by passing along some of your old stash, and getting new-to-you supplies in return!  Simply stuff a MEDIUM FLAT RATE USPS box with gently-used quality supplies.  Don't feel the need to run out and buy something as the purpose of this swap is to clean out your existing stash.

You may choose to have 2 partners for this swap, unless you are a first time swapper.  First timers may only have 1 partner.

We will be using the MEDIUM Flat Rate Box available free at all U.S Post Offices.  There are two shapes: Option 1 is the "shirt box" (13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8" ) or Option 2 the square Box (11" x 8-1/2" x 5-1/2") and be sure to add delivery confirmation.  

Medium flat rate boxes sent Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation costs $11.40 at your local post office.  Set up an online profile at usps.gov and print your postage online and it would only cost $10.20.   Order FREE flat rate boxes to be sent to you through the USPS Website

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

Reserved for Notes from the Organizer

5/3  One more week of sign-ups.  Send me a PM by the end of the day this Friday to participate.  Plenty of space available.  And keep posting in the thread your want's and de-stashing finds.

5/6 Sign-ups thru the end of Friday (tomorrow) 5/7.  Welcome to all of our newbie swappers in this round.  So happy to have you dip your toes into the Craftster Swap pool.   I hope to post partners over the weekend and send out PM's as time allows.  

5/6 We have a swapper who is sensitive to allergens.  I hope that these supplies are clean  but if you are sending items from a heavy smoker or multiple pet household there might be a risk of irritating allergens.  Please PM me if you will be sending supplies from a smoker or pet household so I can not pair you with individuals who have allergies.  Thank you.

5/7 Thanks everyone for sharing with me if you have a smoker or pet household so I can avoid pairing you up with a person with allergies.  Thanks again for accommodating.

Sign-ups END TODAY, well thru the end of the day TODAY.  I'll be working on partners over the weekend.  So you should see a list first and then slowly see a PM with address information being sent out.

5/8  Closed the sign-ups this morning will work on partnering you up.   Thanks for joining.

GALLERY: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346961   Remember to POST PICTURES IN THE GALLERY and PM me with your DC # when you send.

5/9  Partners.  Hurray.  So, I have a few more things to do this Mother's Day afternoon than originally thought so PM's with address will not go out until later this evening or Monday morning.   Therefore-- send outs will be pushed back to SEND BY 5/22

How I do Feedback:  You will receive positive feed back when 1) you sent successfully, 2) your partner has received and 3) you've received your box.   Remember to post pictures in the gallery of what you receive.

YAY!  It's open!
BOO!  All my slots are full!
DOUBLE BOO!  This and 2 other swaps are open that I want to join and won't likely have enough slots to go around for all of them!!

HISSSSSS!!!  I hate making tough crafting choices on where to give my attentions.  Tongue  I am really looking to GIVE my stuff and not contribute to my huge stash by getting anything in return...that's why I'm doing the givers n needers swap!  I may be able to send off for some other swaps to free up some slots pretty fast, so I may end up being able to get into all 3 I wanna be in Smiley
