This swap is a colour specific scavenger hunt for sewing supplies!

You must find for your partner, in their favorite colour sceme:

  • One Fat Quarter (not plain, some kind of pattern)
  • 2 skeins of DMC quality floss or 1 spool thread
  • Ribbon (3 yards or more)
  • Buttons - either 1 large, 2 medium or 3 small
  • One Profile Surprise Item (does not need to be sewing related)

Please be creative - take a look at your partner's profile to see what she likes/dislikes. Does she like polka dots?stripes?floral?certain patterns?etc?

The Profile Surprise item can be something handmade, a pin cushion, or something you buy or have in your stash, like a bookmark, notecards, embellishments, scrapbooking supplies, socks, etc. The profile surprise item does not need to be sewing related.

The requirements for this swap are:

  • 5 real mail swaps which have been rated (not postcards, or email swaps, etc.).
  • You MUST have a COMPLETELY filled out and somewhat detailed profile.
  • You must have a rating of 4.9 or higher
  • You MUST rate your partner and
  • No no sends - EVER.

I will be checking profiles to make sure you meet the requirements and I have the right to ban anyone I feel suspicious about! I do not want any flakers in this swap!

Last month was the first time we had this international and I think it went well - so this will be international again! The items are all pretty light and can be packed pretty flat - so the postage shouldn't be bad! :)

Please say below which colour is your favorite and have fun!

Is it ok to send a piece slightly larger than a fat quarter? What about 1/2 yd?

whiteway 04/13/2009 #

Hi @Rollerwriter You can send larger than a FQ if you would like! I'm sure your partner would love you! :) The above guidelines are just that, guidelines! You are more than welcome to exceed them if you would like too! :)

I signed up for this. . . but I haven't swapped on swap-bot in quite a while. I had 2 swaps where I never received anything & did not get any communication. If you require more recent swap activity than what my profile shows I completely understand.

My colors, if I can "play" would be green and yellow.

Thank you!
