Just wondering how many swappers are interested in craft booklets (less than 50 pages) or leaflets (less than 20 pages) the kind that are not postable here?   I don't mean craft magazines that have advertising in them.  Examples of the unpostables would be Crochet World, Bead World, etc.  Any that do not have an ISBN are definitely not postable.   Some with an ISBN may be denied.  This is simply the current rules.

What I am asking about are the Leaisure Arts, Needlecraft Shop, Annie's Attic, etc., that are technique or pattern booklets, leaflets only.  These must be eligible to be shipped via media mail.  Therefore the only "advertising" can be for/from the publisher for like booklets.  I am interested in hearing from anyone who is interested in trading this size item in any craft.  

Currently PaperBack Book Swap does not allow this genre to be posted.  Would you mind letting me know your thoughts?

Do you believe these items are worth 1 Credit?   Would you like to see a specific genre section created specifically for these booklets/leaflets?     Do you have an objection to having these posted?  Give me your thoughts.

 Pro or Con, I would like to hear from you.  Please be as specific as you can on your reasons.  I am really interested in learning what swappers think about this.

Thank you for your time.  I look forward to hearing from crafters out there!

I think it would be great to be able to swap these.  Some really great patterns aren't available any more and the only way to get them is to find someone who is finished with their copy.  I have some knit, crochet and cross-stitch patterns I've made or will never make and would love to share.
