I just sent in my questionnaire! I have a few things to get caught up on before I craft for this, so I now have a deadline, which is very motivating.


I really like the idea of a hoopless hoopla! I think I’ll play. I love the swaps that make shipping internationally affordable–thus chooseable!


I am definitely on board with this one! :+1:t2: It will take me a little bit to get my questionnaire together, and then I’ll join officially. Yay! First swap on the new site. :heartpulse:


This sounds like fun! Sent in my form!


Yay! Super excited!


I am also super excited about this swap and I’m glad others are too.


I’m in!


I’ve been wanting to make more hooplas!



UGH - it won’t let me submit. I SENT IN MY Q.


Signed up! Hoops are basically my FAVORITE thing to swap XD


@roler! I wondered if you were going to join! Yay!


Aww, it’s killing me to have to sit this out. I adore hoops but we are moving cross country and I just can’t. I’ll keep my eyes on it and hope there’s another round.

I have to drive the whole way or I would :smiley:

Sorry that you can’t join us this time, but hopefully there will be a next time. How long of a drive is it?

Oh, darn! Well, then, I can’t wait to see your hoopla wall installed in your new place!

And, I haven’t hung mine, yet (I only have a few) because I have horsehair plaster and lathe walls in my house. What’s the best way for me to hang them? I don’t really want the hanging hardware to be visible.

We are allowing 5 days, it’s almost 5000 km (3100 miles)

We have extremely hard walls in our current house so I used adhesive hooks and was able to hide them by hooking the back of the hoop rather than the metal tightener on top. The adhesive pulls off when you no longer need the hook without damaging the paint. There are probably many brands but I use Command by 3M.

Thanks for the tips! I was wondering if Command hooks were the way to go. They’re now on my list.

Have a safe trip!
