Swap News

21 June 2008
I hope everyone enjoys their week-end. After a bit of shuffling and switching around, I believe that we have the swap buddies in order. I found another link on the Internet for needle books: http://melissagoodsell.typepad.com/day_to_day/2008/06/easy-felt-needle-holders.html and also wish to give every one the link to Craftzine, a blog which has new craft ideas gathered from the Internet each and every day. Craftzine is an excellent resource for an endless variety of crafts and skills, from sewing and knitting to book binding and furniture refinishing: http://blog.craftzine.com/ Craftzine has articles from artists and crafters, along with their ideas and tutorials from all over the world. There is a rather long index and you can find all sorts of goodies and ideas there that will help as all as we re-tool ourselves for a more self-reliant and sustainable lifestyle. If anyone needs help with the swap, please feel free to e-mail me, Sharon, at : cdetroyes at yahoo dot com and as usual, happy swapping!


  1. Hi Sharpn, thank you for all the wonderful work so far in organising the swaps :)

  2. Wow, the craftzine blog is amazing, thanks for pointing it out! I've spent all aftenoon lokoing through it, and have loads of cool ideas.

  3. Sharon, these were really excellent links. So excellent, I sat down this morning and made two needlebooks. If you or anyone else fancies a look - here's the link.

    Great fun - and it took literally half an hour. Lisa x
