Quilting, Crochet (and learning to knit), Embroidery, Dolls & Softies, Photography, Aprons, and I caught the Dottee bug!
I have lots of swap experience on a Yahoo group called Backporch Friends and a related blog, The Country Cellar. I've done exchanges for quilt blocks, fat quarters, pincushie/needlekeeper, and a 4-month-long quilting sister.
I'm also currently in an apron exchange on this blog at www.down---to---earth.blogspot.com
And I'm an active member of www.postcrossing.com
My only bad experience has been in a pincushion exchange where my partner was a month late sending her swap, which was a dud compared to the time and effort I had put into my exchange to her. And she never even said thank you! I'm not bitter though...LOL
