Fox of Tat-ology has come up with an idea to trade tatting thread which I think is quite ingenious. This is unlike the standard form of exchanges where one will be assigned a partner and you are then to send to that partner whatever item that is specified for the exchange.
It has received encouraging response and a special blog has been created to facilitate this swaps/trades/exchanges .... whatever term you want to use for it. I am not going to say more about it. Click on the picture below to go to the blog. Explanations on how this exchange works are there.
There are already a wide selection put up for trade. So, if you are wondering how a certain thread feels like tatted, you can try and get a sample through this exchange to see if you like it. Then you can go ahead and place that order ... or not.
