It's a bit grey and yucky here today and I am sooooo looking forward to the Christmas holidays, spending time together, and no alarm clock...bliss!
I thought this would be a good day to launch (that sounds a bit up market doesn't it!) the Crafty Currency Swap!
I've not hosted a swap before, so apologise beforehand for any mistakes I may (will) make!!
If you want to join in, here's how it will work:
Leave me a comment on what you would like to offer and what you would like to receive in return.
Although this is not about gaining financially, please be mindful about the value of what you are offering, and that it is balanced by what you would like to receive!
It could be something you've made or fabric/yarn or a craft book that you have, but no longer need.
Everything must be in good condition, even vintage items!
I cannot promise to match everyone up, but I will try!
State if you are only able to post in the UK or if you are willing to post Worldwide!
I will close entry to the swap on the 31st December 8.00pm GMT. I will then match up as many as I can, (may have to put appeals out if I can't match everyone!) I will then link up the partners.
It is then UP TO THE SWAP PARTNERS to communicate, discuss ideas, values etc and arrange postage etc.
I will try and match up partners by the 2nd week in January, with the view for the swap to take place mid February.
Please make sure I am able to email you, otherwise I won't be able to include you in the swap!
So here goes! I would like to offer:
OFFER: A patchwork cushion cover like the ones in the top photo, in a mix of vintage sheets. I would love to receive a little crochet garland with colourful flowers/hearts, perhaps a metre long. Post worldwide.
OFFER: A pack of vintage wallpaper, 10 sheets (approx. 21cms x 26cms), in a variety of patterns and colours. I would love to receive 2/3 balls of yarn, cotton mix, nice and colourful! (I'm new to this yarny stuff so don't know costs, but will adjust offer accordingly!). UK postage only.
OFFER: 2 FQ's of vintage sheet material, you can choose from Etsy shop (I will be listing fabric in the new year). I would love some bark cloth, feed sack or liberty material. UK postage only.
So what do you think folks? Anyone up for the Crafty Currency Swap? Something to look forward to after the festivities!
Welcome to all those who are now following Vintage Sheet Addict! I've been trying to reply by email to all your comments, but I'm behind already! I love reading your comments and really appreciate them, especially as I know how busy everyone is at the moment!
Thanks for your all the techno support you gave me after my last post, it's obviously just a change made for those of us that use iPads, heaven knows why, it was fine before!
Bye for now.....your homes are all looking LOVELY and festive! I'm loving a good old nosey around your Christmas displays!
Ada :) x
