The very 1st CHA Craft Swap!

BBtags1 “A craft swap?” I hear you ask eagerly…

A craft swap is when you make a crafty item (it can be anything you like to make) to send off to a swap partner; and you will receive a crafty item from them in return. Fun all round! It is also a great opportunity to make a connection with a peer in the craft industry, as well as get a pressie just for you!

So The CHA are organising their first craft swap for all you clever crafters out there. Go on - admit it, we all love getting some love in the post!

The more participants the better!

Here are the rules...

Your swap item must be to a value of at least $20 and no more than $50. This insures that everyone gets a similarly valued item.

There is no theme to this swap, you can make anything you please.

To register for the swap, comment under this post with your name and email address, and we will contact you with your swap partners details. If

you have a blog, leave that address too; so your swap partner can get an idea of who you are and what you might like.

Items are to be posted out no later than the 30th June 2010. Partner matching will be finalised on the 14th June! So make sure you have commented by then.

Oh 1 more thing; it’s open to Australian residents only.

How easy is that? So spread the word, and comment below to sign up, and don’t forget you email address!


P.S. If you and your swap partner decide to send us a photo of each of you with your received item, you may be selected to be featured on this blog!

Cheers –Beckie

  89. so i would like to be part of this craft swap it sounds very exciting only i have never done anything like this before, so just querying with the value of a minimum of 20, if your making say a necklace or a pair of earrings or something to that effect the materials don't always add up to $20 so does this mean you have to make something else or would you just include more than one or how does it work?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hi Karmi84; It means that you can send 1 or multiple items that you would value together between $20 - $50. It is up to you how you work that out. Now that craft swap entries closed already, however we have an odd number. If you would like to join in please let us know asap and we will add you in!

    ReplyDelete
  91. hi there, if you still have an odd number then i would still like to join in. thanks
