- Phase 2 (finish your partner's hoop) must be mailed back by 9/12 (2 weeks +4 days for Phase 1 mailing time), or 18 days after your partner sends if they are late.
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Limited to 16 people
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES... ish.
If so, which country?
Because there are 2 rounds of mailing, you and your partner must live in the SAME country.
If you live in the United States, you can sign up and get assigned a random partner as usual.
If you are living outside the US: we'd love to have you, but you'll need to find and invite a partner from your same country, and both sign up at the same time (within 2 days please).

DETAILS OF SWAP:
This is a fast and fun swap to get you out of your comfort zone! One week of signup, then two crafty phases of two weeks each.
You will start a hoopla and then send it to your partner (Phase 1). Your partner will doll it up and mail it back to you, and you will get an awesome surprise when you see the result (Phase 2). For example, if you make the branches of a tree, your partner might finish it with button leaves or a bird nest or whatever they like.
Because most of the fun of this exercise is getting something completely unexpected, you are encouraged to keep an open mind. Note that there is a section in the questionnaire for things you absolutely would not be comfortable receiving/working on, but there is NO section for requests. Your partner will bring their own talents and creative spark to the project, and you'll do the same.
Please only send "extras" that are potential craft supplies for your hoop. For example, if your base uses a lot of a particular color of embroidery floss, you might send a skein of that floss as a resource for your partner to use when finishing the hoop. However, your partner is under no obligation to use the supplies (or to send unused supplies back)!
There is no point value for this swap. The goal is that when you finish your partner's base, you will match or exceed their level of effort.
