It's time once again for the Spring Flower Swap! I'm Melissa, and I'm coordinating this Floral Frenzy.

*Sign-ups for this swap are now closed.*
This swap will run from March 1-April 30, so you will have nearly 2 months to complete this swap.


All packages should be mailed no later than April 20th for domestic mail, and April 15th for international mail.


For this swap you will make 5 flowers for each member in your swap group, and receive 5 flowers from each one in return. You will receive a short list of names with the people to make flowers for a few days before the start of the swap (i.e. March 1st). Your name will also be on that list; send a package to each person in your group--these can all be shipped at the same time to save trips to the Post Office. I will do my best to keep the lists small, no more than 3 or 4 people per group.

Someone mentioned adding 'extras' to the packages. This is acceptable, but not required. :)

This swap runs from March 1st through April 30th.

E-mail the coordinator when you send or receive a package so that she can update your record.

Thank yous are a requirement, and can be sent via e-mail, e-card, or postal mail, and of course posted at Crochetville. I ask that everyone remember that what they receive took time to make and the sender really should be thanked. The sender would also like to know their package arrived safely, so please get in touch with them somehow.

Place “Crochetville Swap” somewhere on your package so that the recipient can jump in excitement when it arrives.

Since we are an international group and everyone is more than welcome to participate, that means that someone in your swap group may live across the world. When you sign up for a swap, I will ask you if you can ship overseas.

Most importantly – have fun!

~~> means package has shipped to person(s) to right of arrow
username means package has been received by said person to right of arrow
Name (username) means swapper has shipped all three packages and they have all been received

You still have some time before sign ups are over for practice if you'd like. If you can read a pattern, you should be able to work at least some of the flowers on Rachel's site (CPC). This swap doesn't have a limited number of swappers.

This sounds so much fun. But I am still unsure how it works. I know just say :think .. I was wondering is there a certian size for the flower? Or is it a block with flower on it? And when it is all done well there be enough to make a afghan or something small?

I'm so excited! :cheer I just completed the survey and am looking forward to this swap! I watched last year's Flower Swap and loved reading and seeing what everyone made. :manyheart

I'm not sure what the "guidelines" for flowers are, if any, but what I saw of last year's round there were flower embellishments (just flowers) and some people went further and made flower-themed items such as dishcloths, squares, a purse with flowers, a hat with a flower. That was very generous of them to make something featuring a flower. I would imagine this swap just requires that you make flowers (to add to whatever the recepient wants to add them to) but, as in most swaps, you're welcome to be creative and do more than what the minimum requirement is, further suprising your partners.
