SWAP DETAILS:
Here's how it works:
In this swap, you can contact anyone on Craftster and ask them to be your partner. It's almost like a personal swap, but with a group, and a killer gallery! You will have to sign up with your partner. That is, you must contact your potential partner via pm and you both must mutually agree to be partnered together. Once you have a partner, each of you must pm me with your information, and after doing all the necessary double checking, I will post you both together as participants and add this swap to your "In progress" feedback.
Swappers may have two partners this round! However, if you have any instances of 'poor swapping' documented in your feedback (such as 'no communication' 'did not craft in the spirit of the swap') or numerous instances of sending very late, I ask that you only craft for one partner. You may not have more than two partners.  ** New swappers may only have 1 partner**
As partners, you will choose if you want to have a theme, if you want to stalk each other and be surprised, or if you want to request from each other things you have admired in the past. You should also agree on quantity. I would suggest one "large" (time consuming and/or valuable) item, and a couple of "small" (quicker to craft) items that you know your partner will like.  But make sure that you both agree on a size.  Feel free to start crafting for your partner as soon as you are both officially signed up!
If you want to participate, but you are a bit shy of just asking someone, you can PM me and you'll be put on a list of "Potential Partners" in the next post, so people can choose from craftsters that are interested.

 RULES:
Please check into the thread once per week.
swappers will receive temporary negative feedback if:
- it is one week past send-outs and you are out of communication for 2 weeks
- it is two weeks past send-outs and you have not yet sent, regardless of the communication with us and your partner.

Even if you decide with your partner that you are sending late and she/he says its alright, you MUST send by two weeks past the send out date or this will be reflected in negative feedback. Once you do send and your partner has received, your feedback will be changed back to positive.  However, this late sending will be reflected in your feedback comments even if you communicated.  

THIS IS A VERY IN DEPTH SWAP AND WE ARE TRADING WITH PEOPLE WE LIKE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY AND BE READY TO SEND ON TIME!

The secret password is: lucky ducky!

ONE NOTE: It is a little scary to ask someone to be your partner. Some people may have someone else already in mind, or they may not have the time or funds to participate right now, or they may just not be interested. We need to remember to be nice if we feel we need to refuse someone, and to not take it personally if someone else turns us down.

So, in summary, here's what you need to do:

1. Contact your partner (make sure they're in good standing, swapwise), and agree to join together
2. Both partners must PM luckdragon and each other with the questionnaire including mailing information.  
3. Post in this thread weekly so I can keep up with you!
4. Make sure you can mail on time, and provide organizer with a USPS tracking number for U.S. packages.  If you are shipping internationally, make sure to save your post office receipt.
5. PM your partner and organizer when you receive as well! Your partner CANNOT get feedback unless we know that the package was received. Thank your partner both in a PM and publicly in the gallery. If you are unable to post pictures, please let your partner know before they send to you so that they can make sure to take pictures to post.  We all want to see what you got!
6. Lack of PMs to organizer and your partner will be noted in feedback!!!
7. Have fun!

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer (luckdragon)

It's another needlework (embroidery, cross stitch, etc?) hoopla swap! This time the theme is PLACES, which you can interpret any way you see fit. I'm sure there will be lots of interesting hoops in this one.

- Your hoop must be "place" themed - whatever that means to you and your partner
- You may opt to have 2 partners. See notes below for more info.*
- Posting to the thread is required at least once a week. Once the swap starts, I'll post a check-in question on Fridays, so you can check-in by answering that if you'd like.
- Have fun!


*Selecting Two Partners
If you opt for having two partners then you will be paired up twice. This will require that you communicate, craft for and send a hoop to two different partners. See the example below...
Participants
Person A - 2 partners
Person B - 1 partner
Person C - 1 partner
Person D - 1 partner
Person E - 1 partner
Partners
Person A <> Person B
Person A <> Person C

SWAP DETAILS:
This swap is limited to FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER ONLY, PLEASE!

It has been a couple of years, so we are resurrecting the FRIENDS OF CRAFTSTER RAFFLE SWAP!!  This is round 11 and the theme is Winter Wonderland.  You create one fabulous medium item in your 'best' style that falls under the theme "Winter Wonderland" - however you want to interpret that.  This item will be your entry
into the raffle.  (You could also opt to create a set of 2-3 small items in lieu of one medium)

This will be a 'raffle' style swap. You will create your medium item and post a picture of it in the swap thread no later than 8am CST on Feb 12.  Everyone will have the opportunity to ooh and ahhh and dream and wish for all of the prizes before the raffle.  
On the evening of Feb 12, we will randomly match swappers with prizes (taking into consideration allergies/allergens, etc).  Once the matches have been made, you will receive a PM with the name/address of the person you are sending your prize to - but not the craftster username.  Unless you are a super sleuth (or already know the person), you
won't know who you are sending to.  Extras are NOT required (especially as you don't know who you are sending to and you will be receiving from someone else).  PLEASE try to keep this a SECRET if you DO figure out who you are sending to! This way the winner will be surprised with their prize when it arrives

Please communicate in the thread OR by PM to the organizer ONCE a week at a minimum so we know you are still out there and crafting for the swap. If I have not seen you posting in the thread, this will be reflected in your feedback.  I will check in with you when there is about 1 week left to make sure you are still in on a prize for the drawing.


Feedback will be given when your partner has received.  Please PM the organizers when you send AND when you receive so we can keep the lists updated.

Negative feedback will be given if you have not sent out by 2 weeks past the sendout date, and an angel will be found for your winner.  Seeing as this is a premade craft raffle, and you have to have a completed item posted before the drawingI dont see this happening for anyonebut you never know what life has in store for you from one day to the next!

I will post a gallery for prizes so when the winner receives their item and may have it displayed in their home/wearing it/put it to use in some way, they may post a picture or two for us showing off their great prize.

Rule Highlights:
1. Friends of Crafster only:  Not a Friend of Craftster? Join here! Support the website that supports your crafting needs

http://www.craftster.org/subscribe.php

2. Items MUST be crafted and ready to go by the end of signups, as you only have 1 WEEK to send them out after signups are closed! So once you know you are approved, start crafting!  If you have a pre-made item, GREAT! This means youre ready to go and weve barely begun, so post a picture and sit back and chat us up til signups close!

3. Photos of all 'prizes' are DUE NO LATER than 8am CST on Feb 12 so everyone has an opportunity to see what will be offered before the drawing and sendouts.  If you do not post a picture by this date or at all, it will be noted in your feedback, as this IS a requirement for this swap to be a success.  If you absolutely CANNOT post a picture, please PM me before signing up.

4. Swap is for: one (1) medium item (Medium = 2 or more crafting hours OR $10-$30 dollars) Can also be a pair/set of 2-3 small items to equal 1 medium. Please PM me if you have questions about your item offered.  

5. Prizes must be mailed out by Feb 19, 2014.  Packages within the US must have a tracking number.  International shippers should keep their receipt.

Winter is upon us and, for many, that means cold temperatures, gray skies and dark days. If you're craving the warm sunshine and bright days of summer and wanting to brighten another members day with a sunshine bomb, this swap is for you!

In the Box of Sunshine swap, we'll be sending our partners a sunshine inspired package filled with bright and cheery crafted goodness!

Swap Details
Requirements:
1. One medium crafted item that is bright and sunny
2. One small crafted item that is bright and sunny
3. Bright and happy package fillers (OPTIONAL)
4. Posting to the discussion thread or PMing organizers is required once a week!
5. Have fun!!

Crafted Items Info:
When you and your partner open your packages, you should feel warm - not hot chocolate and flannel blanket warm but barefoot toes in hot white sands kind of warm !! Crafted items should be done in sunshiney colors (yellows, oranges, warm beiges...). Items should be aligned with your partners wishes. Here are some ideas!

- Picnic tray decorated with yellow and orange designs
- Pillow cover quilted with yellow fabrics
- Journal cover with an embroidered sunshine
- Stenciled beach towel with a summer inspired saying
- Painting or wall hanging of a sunset
- Yellow fizzy bath bombs and soap set

If you want to fill your sunshine package with yellow candies or yellow craft supplies or other extras, you can indicate so in questionnaire and be partnered with someone else that wants the same. If you'd prefer to just stick with crafted items, you can select that option too.
