Details of swap:   (bits of details blatantly plagarized from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263371.0)
Scraps, scraps, everywhere scrap scraps!  Ticker tape and bottled rainbow quilts are all the rage right now, but most of us dont have enough of the right scraps on hand. Or maybe you like small bits of fabric for embellishments or accessories.  Although Im not a stranger to buying LOADS of 1/8 yard bits, wouldnt it be nice to swap with another craftster?  Whatever you need scraps for, this is the swap for you.  

We all have scraps left over from projects, too good to throw away, but too small/wrong color/etc to use for ourselves.  So why not pass them on to someone who would love them, all the while getting your own new loveys?

I will do my best to match people up according to what they have to offer and what they would like to receive.

Here are the guidelines:
1. You will be using either a large envelope (10x13) or the 9 X 12 flat-rate $4.95  USPS (or comparable) envelope.
2. You can include as much fabric as you can fit in that receptacle, as long as each piece is at least 2x2 (if you want a bigger size, you can ask your partner, and as long as you both agree and let me-hockamama-know, it is all good)
3. We will only have 1 week after partners are assigned to mail, since there is no crafting involved. If that is a problem, please let your partner and myself know IMMEDIATELY.
4. HAVE FUN!!!!

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

Name of swap
Craftster username
Email address
Your real name
Mailing address including the country
Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?
Confirm that you are at least 16 years old or, if not, that you have moderator approval(YES/NO)

What type/kind of scraps do you have to offer? (IE cotton, polyester, knit....novelty prints, rainbow, earth tones, patterns, etc.

What type/kind of scraps would you like to receive?
What type of project are you working on?

Do you have allergies that your partner needs to know about?
Do you have allergens in your home that the organizer needs to know in order to select partners?

Anything else you feel you need to mention?


Also remember to read the https://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html  to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

I'm in! I already warned my mother to save her fabric scraps for me, so I should have a good variety to offer!

Just sent in my questionnaire!!!!! 

Anyone who does a fabric swap that I'm in finds out that I'm that dork who gets a kick out of recognizing fabric that I have in pics/posts/mags, etc. . . .  Well right now I'm giddy and giggly because I have SIX of the fabrics in the swap pic!

(I know, I know . . . but I did start out with the whole I'm a dork thing . . .)

Lol @ Foxy!  I buy the majority of mine at Hobby Lobby and Walmart, so I don't often recognize them in other peoples' pics.  Occasionally, but not often.

I need to think about this as a lot of my fabric scraps are at my Mom's house (800km away) and I've been throwing a lot out recently.  That and my life is crazy right now.  Oh why must you taunt my crazy life Craftster Craft swaps...
