Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join this swap! Sign-ups are open until March 28th. PM the organizer the above questionnaire to get started, and please wait to be accepted into the swap before making any claims.

Please make sure you are not late in any of your other swaps before committing to this one. Please make those swaps your priority.

Claims are made throughout the month.  You have three weeks from the time you make a claim to send that claim.
You can make as many (or as few) claims as you want throughout the month as long as you never go over your allowed amount of outstanding claims. (An outstanding claim is a hoopla that has not been received; when that hoopla is received your number of outstanding claims goes down leaving you open to bring it back up to 2 or 3.) If, at any point, you already have one claim that will be sent out late, please don't claim again until that one is sent out.

FOCs are allowed to make a maximum of 3 outstanding claims.
Non-FOCs are allowed to make a maximum of 2 outstanding claims.
First time swappers are allowed to make a maximum of 1 outstanding claim.

Posting pictures of received hooplas is required for this swap.
If you are unable to do so, you are expected to contact the person who claimed you and ask them to please do so for you.

1. Claims are made using the following procedure:

Person A (the swap organizer) will begin the swap by posting a list of themes in this swap thread.
Person B will choose a theme from one of A's themes and make a claim by posting his/her own list (see below for formatting of post).
Person C will make a claim on one of B's themes and post his/her own list.
Person D will make a claim on one of C's themes and post his/her own list etc...

This continues through the end of the month, when the swap organizer closes out the claiming part of the swap and continues this swap in the next round starting in the next month.

2. How to make a claim:
A claim post should include the following information:
1. The theme you are choosing and who youre sending it to.
2. The send by date (three weeks from the date the claim is made)
3. Statistical info about your current swap claims status:

Claims = Claims currently outstanding (ie., how many not yet received by their new owners.) (This number goes down each time a claim is received, and up each time you make a claim.)
Sent = anything currently in the mail.
Received = the hooplas received by the people you've sent them to.
Formatted thusly (claims outstanding/claims sent/claims received)

4. Your location.
5. Your personal preferences.
6. Your list of themes.
7. *Optional* Any wist or pinterest that would be relevant.

1. Send a personal message to the person you have claimed and request their address

2. You have 3 weeks to complete each hoopla (equivalent to at least a medium or 2 hours in crafting time), and have it in the mail to its new owner. You cannot have more than your maximum allotted claims outstanding (3 for FOC, 2 for non-FOC, 1 for new swappers)


1. Please PM the organizers (Averia & homerof2) and claimer/claimee when you send or receive a hoopla.
2.  Label the message as Ongoing Hoopla Swap Sent or Received,
3.  Be sure and include (1) the "send by" date, as well as (2) the theme and (3) who sent it

Positive feedback will be given when all of the hooplas you sent have been received.   Good communication is vital and will be noted in feedback.

If you have any questions please post them in the discussion thread or PM the organizer.  This thread is specifically for claims only.

I claim Sandroo for Disney villains

This is my first claim (1,0,0) Send by 3/29/12

I have a huge wall set aside for hoops and it has had many beautiful additions from swapping, but there is a ton of room left to fill.

I am a huge fan of Firefly/Serenity, steampunk, the color blue in all shades

Here are my themes!

  • lyrics to the Firefly theme song
  • something inspired by this embroidery http://inaminuteago.com/embroidery/embroidery8.html, tho i certainly don't expect anyone to put in quite so much effort. with or without lizards. I really love the crowded variety of textured stitches mixed with large blocks of a repeated pattern
  • the three characters '[email protected]#'
  • blackwork
  • monochromatic in blues
  • a mini cross stitched quilt (any pattern)
  • silly frogs/tree frogs/faerie frog
  • Celtic knotwork
  • Meowth/Team Rocket
  • Abby from NCIS
  • The Letter K
  • Pinterest surprise
  • Anything at all that inspires you

Thank you!!!

My themes are
Weird, odd, unusual
Hearts with wings
Trees (spooky or regular)
Pinterest pick

Hi!  I'm LeeAnne and I live in Florida with my Hubster, 13 year old daughter, 6 year old son, and my cat.  I keep myself busy trying all kinds of crafts, but I mostly do papercrafting and beading.

My favorite colors are jewel tones- red blue green purple- and mettalics- copper, silver, gold, bronze.

On with the themes:
Stitch (as in Disney's Lilo and Stitch)
LOST- (this tv show is my obsession)
Star Trek
Star Wars
Asian inspired art- konji, geishas, fans, etc.
Anime- Kid friendly though please - the favorites are Sargent Frog, Naruto and Dragon Ball
Disney- it's all good but favorites are Wall-E, Toy Story (esp the aliens), and Monsters Inc.
Anything video gaming- favorites are Gears of War, Mario Brothers, and anything that references old school gaming- nintendo, atari, sega

I claim simplyshereena for Monsters
Send by March 30


I'm Cindy and I live in Alberta, Canada.  I love bright colors (except mint green and baby blue) but I also like dark purple, dark blue and dark green.  I prefer solid backgrounds for my hoops rather than a busy material as I like the work to really stand out.  Please don't send me anything with profanity or nudity.

My themes:

      - Mr. Potatoe Head (example, for inspiration, on my hoops board on Pinterest)
      - Tulips, marigolds or sunflowers
      - Fancy hearts
      - snowmen
      - Old sewing machines
      - Old telephones
      - Old typewriters
      - anything from my hoop board on Pinterest - here's the link
      - Winnie the Pooh
      - Ukrainian Easter Eggs
