Maybe your ratings have been falling lately…Maybe your just a swapper with a great score and want a simple swap to keep it that way….

Simply pick three items off the list and send them to one partner…

Got it 3 items X 1 partner= 3 items….

  • A card of fun buttons

  • A Yard of patterned ribbon

  • A yard of rick rack

  • 2 skeins of embroidery floss

  • 1 needle threader

  • 1 thimble

  • 2 small spools of thread

  • 2 sheets of felt

  • 1 package of safety pins

  • 1 Fat quarter of Fabric

  • 12 -1 inch fabric yoyo's

  • 1- 7 inch zipper any color

  • 1 sewing charm

  • 1 sheet of PRINTED labels for your partner- no handmade labels (30 labels is the standard size, if overseas whatever the standard size label is) Sewing theme Printed Labels as in Address Labels

  • 1 yard of velcro

  • 10 swap cards

  • 2 yards of Elastic

  • 1 yard of lace

  • 1- 1/2 yard Transfer Fusing Web

  • 1 chalk marker

  • 1 pack of snaps

Yes there are a few rules: This swap will be running just in time for Valentine's Day. Please let everyone know if you celebrate Valentine's day so maybe they can wrap it with a HEART! LOL That will be the twist of all twists..

If you flake in this swap, you will be banned from the group with a no return policy.

Must have a filled out Profile. (By this I mean your likes and dislikes so your partner will have some idea to go by.)

Everyone is invited Yes Newbies also, unless you are a notorious no sender!!! This is an international swap as well, so some things may not be sent overseas, so please check first.

Please limit the “I don’t want sent to me items to 2 ‿THAT MEANS YOU ARE ONLY TO LIST TWO THINGS FROM THE LIST!!!! This is supposed to be fun and a surprise!

PLEASE SEND YOUR ITEMS and SEND THEM ON TIME!!!! If you can’t fulfill your duties before the swap ends please drop out. Or if you change your mind, please drop out…The send by date means that is the date the items have to be postmarked by. If you have to send late, please e-mail your partners and tell them...

With the price increase in postage, please take your package to be weighed at the post office for proper postage. No one likes to have to pay for their swaps!

Remember to Rate your partners when the ratings open. A lot of people are new in this swap and are depending on this rating to be allowed in others.

Be a good swapper! Remember it is important to be nice!!!! It might come back to bite YOU!

For those who watch the list of swappers...I will be going through the list after the swap ends and banning people then. So that scammers who were banned can not start another profile and sign back up.

I can not angel unrec'd swaps

I'm not swapping right now (we're trying to have a baby!) but I'm going to watch this. If it gets closer to the deadline and we're still not pregnant I'll join!

Howdy @biasbabe

I had no idea pins could't be sent overseas - since you seem to be so knowledgable about this topic, is there a list somewhere to review for other restricted items?

Also, regarding swap cards - I've made those for myself in the past. I include my real first name, my swap id/name on it, a blank line to note the swap I'm sending in the package plus a pretty little design and my email address - fun to make and fun to share! But if that's not what you mean, do correct me!

niecedenise 11/18/2009 #

Definitely on my watchlist!

Moontear28 11/22/2009 #

Sounds fun I'm in!

biasbabe 11/24/2009 #


I did some changing around. I forgot to drop a couple things down that was in the wrong spots. Like the Swap cards. Yes Swap cards are really nice to have. I will totally agree. I am removing that part about the needles because it has changes since I had ran the swap almost two years ago. Thank you for reminding me.

I would prefer no labels and no snaps. If someone wanted to make yoyos, I would be over the moon!

JasNemi 01/28/2010 #

There's nothing I really don't want but if I get a partner from USA a measuring gauge with inches would be the greatest!

crochetjunkie 01/28/2010 #

I'm not looking to get safety pins or lace.

malora 01/29/2010 #

I would prefer no labels and no swap cards. Thank you! Excited for this swap!

Maggles45 01/29/2010 #

No labels or swap cards for me. Thanks - everything else is fine.

Maggles45 01/29/2010 #

Whoops, I am going to drop out of this one. I see the send by date has to be postmarked also. I live 12 mi from town. I always give my mail lady carrier my packages, she takes it to our local post office & then it is sent on to San Antonio. I have no idea when or where it is postmarked. I always SEND by the "Send by" date. Once it is in the hands of the postal system, I feel I have lived up to my responsibility in "sending" on time. Feb 8 is a Monday & the PO is closed on Sat & Sun which definitely shortens the time to have postmarked.

Maybe another time. Have fun ladies - Hugs, Maggie
