SWAP OVERVIEW

  • This is a ONE item swap, no extras please! You will craft one pincushion/needle minder/needle book for your partner. I am trying to keep the postage low for this one. I am allowing 1 month crafting time because I have noticed when you limit it to ONE item, the detail and intricacy of the work really goes thru the roof. You’re ALWAYS welcome to send early!

I’ll be signing up for this one!

I think I may sign up too! No extras, does that literally mean nothing except the pincushion? So no candy bar or a few bags of tea either? Or no crafted extras? Either way is fine for me, just wanted to check. It’s a bit of a habit for me to throw in some small treats with every package.

I’m sure a little something sweet in the package will be just fine but yes just ONE crafted item

I was so happy to see this in the list of new swaps!

I’ve been waiting for this swap since the last site was live, so I’m definitely prioritizing this over all the others. :heart_eyes: Wedding planning and my new job are taking almost everything I have, and I’ll be making birthday and holiday presents for family soon, so this (not counting a personal swap I’ve already got in the works) is my only site swap this round. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: :two_hearts: Unless something crazy happens and I finish and mail before the deadline for something else specifically holiday-related closes. Then we’ll see. :joy:

Hello all and welcome!!!
I have assigned partners and will be emailing everyone within the hour of their partners, I LOVE reading everybody’s questionnaires and think this is going to be an epic swap!

Ice breaking question:
You can have an unlimited supply of one thing for the rest of your life, what is it? for me-YARN!! (oh darn, I should’ve picked money)

HA! Fair. :grin: I think I would want an unending supply of energy! So much of my life is dictated by how tired or worn out I am; being able to remove that barrier would make so many things so much better!

2 Likes

Ooooh! Both are very good answers!

Really, I should say energy, too… but because I want to be different, I’ll say wool felt. :grin:

Edited to add: HOORAY for partners!

I’d also have to say yarn. A skein that changes colors at the exact spot needed and never runs out would be the best!

We’re in partial lockdown again as of tomorrow so I’ll have alllll the time for crafting!

And the unlimited supply, as someone with a chronic health issue I’d love some energy too, but unlimited embroidery floss in all the colours will do!
