One of the first swaps I participated in was sponsored by Lisa Vollrath of Ten Two Studios. Lisa hosted a fan swap. She provided the pattern for the fan, posted info about the swap, and artists who were interested signed up. Each of us then created 3 fans from the pattern (the pictures above are of the 3 I made), mailed them to Lisa and she mailed 3 fans back to us. Each of us received 3 beautiful fans made by other artists.
Another swap I had fun with was an ATC swap. There are many of these online at various artists' blogs and websites. Here are a few I did for one with the theme "Leather and Lace."
