iPhone test post

Hi everyone, just testing my iPhone blogger app to see if I can post from my phone.

Took a picture of the cream puffs that Tina and I are eating at our sew in.

Wish me luck,

Linking System is Up and Running Now...

Thank you so much for your patience with the linking site I am using. Nothing like starting a new blog with links as your primary vehicle and the links don't work! I felt so badly for the man from Linky Tools...he was upgrading his system/site and had a nightmare of a problem. Seems to ok now, so you can start adding your links and pictures of the items you want to swap. Have fun! Let me know if there is a problem...he is great to work with and can fix anything.

Take care,

Update...there seems to be a little glitch in the Linky Tool that I'm using on each page. That site was doing a major update this past weekend. Hopefully it will be back soon. Gives you time to take pictures and do a post for your swap item.

Hello everyone! I'm so glad you stopped by. I started this second blog as an extension of my main home...Sew Many Ways. On that blog, I had a post called Swap Meet Weekend. Well, I turned that one post into this blog.

"Sew Many Ways 2 Swap" is a place where we can swap all our goodies that we longer need or want, for something that we just can't live without...for FREE!! That's the best part, all swapping on this blog is FREE. The only cost is shipping the item to your swap partner.

Click the "Follow" button so you know where we are, but this welcome post and instructions will be up for a while til we get going. Your blog rolls or feeds only update when I do a new post...they won't be updated each time someone adds a new item to the come back often!!

Here's how it all works...

  • take a picture of your item or items and do a little post about it on your blog with a link back to this blog so every one knows where to go. Explain the item and the location (just the state or country is fine). This helps to get a rough estimate on shipping.
  • each category under the title has a linking system. Pick the category that you would like your item to be under. For example, you have 2 yards of fabric that you know you won't be using. Click on the Fabric section, go through the process of adding your link with a picture and then submit your item. The linking system I use explains each step. Link the http address of just the item's post, not your blog. If you click on the post's title, that will give you that specific address.
  • now you can browse through the fabric category or any other category and look for an item that you would want in return for your fabric.
  • remember the items are free, so you and your swap partner must come to a fair agreement for the value of the items
  • swap partners will contact each other through email or through the comment section of your own post, on your blog. This is why it's best to have a blog.
This is such a wonderful idea to swap or recycle items that are just sitting around your home and turn them into useful items that you can enjoy.
So join in on the fun and browse through all the categories up above!
Have a great time,
