SWAP of the year!!!

Postby divadoll_1 » Tue Feb 16, 2016 1:25 pm

Well all you lovely people.... I am going to start a swap for the year. I want it to be open to all levels of experience, so that those who are less confident or competent will have the option to put together a package including some quality items based on the preferences of their swap partner.

I am thinking of giving a pretty long run into this one so that slower knitters/crafters can get something done in time so a summer swap in time for the holidays....August 1st.

This will be open to ALL crafts, so even if you are less of a crafter but can make cakes to die for...then sign up! Think knitting, sewing, crochet, baking, papercrafts, pottery, ANYTHING.

Now I suggest a total of £20 for the package and for it to all fit into the size of a shoebox so that you can send it all by couriers like Hermes for about £3 within the UK. There will need to be a little jiggery pokery for those outside the UK. £20 isnt too much for a swap if you have 6 months to accumulate the goodies.

I will take names and details as follows, then make up a partner swap based on preferences. The list will have to be compiled by the middle of March as I am off for a 3 week holiday and will want to get this under way so I can start my shopping while away :rasp:

LOL

I think we need a few more to take you upon it. I don't mind if it doesn't go ahead if there are only the 2 of us.

There doesn't seem to be the interest in swaps like there was a couple of years ago - I've always found it a fun thing to do.

OK JMT... I think I will just keep on with the one I am involved with on Ravelry and give this up as a lost starter :(
