Friendship bracelet swap

Hello everyone! Welcome to the friendship bracelet swap!
I'm totally obsessed with making friendship bracelets at the moment and I thought it would be fun to swap.

Here's a photo to whet your appetite.

This swap is open to vets and newbies, but newbies will be expected to have completed at least one swap prior to this and have a well filled out profile.

You will be required to send;
1 x friendship bracelet
1 x card or note
You can send any style of friendship bracelet you like as long as it’s predominantly made of embroidery threads, yarn or cords. You can embellish it or incorporate chain or charms if you wish, but remember to try and keep it on the light side so that postage doesn’t become too expensive. Check out this blog for ideas;

Please state if you’re happy to swap with more than one person (max of 3 partners).

Sign up by April 11th send out by April 25th

Rosa, I've messaged you about the swap and your questions about newbie/vet status.

Hey everyone!

We have had a late joiner! Pam wants to join in the bracelet making fun. She's been having trouble posting, so here's her details below:

Name: Pam
Newbie/Vet Status: VET
Swap with Newbie: yes
Location: Idaho, USA
International shipping: Yes
Multiple partners: yes
Wrist measurements and preferences:When I make bracelets with clasps they have to be at least 8 inches, so I guess for these I'd need 8+ extra to tie them on.

As a result scrap what I said about a round robin, but I'm still bumping the swap.
Partners are:
Rosa r. & Monika
Pam & Libby
Pam & Rosa r.

I hope everyone is happy with their new partners. Send out April 25th.

I see partners have been assigned but according to the first post sign-ups are open till April 15th - so is it too late to join?

Sorry Tracy I've bumped the swap (which means I closed the sign-ups early), as its been up for a week and hadn't generated much interest. Maybe another time.

Well, I wouldn't mind making another bracelet so that Tracy can be included. I forgot how fun they were to make. Happy

Yep, I can do international shipping. Shouldn't be too much to mail a bracelet, lol.

What are your favorite colors and wrist size? Message me your address and such when you get a chance.
Happy
