Make sure you read the entire swap information (yes that means all the little bits of info )
This swap is for all those; Kings, Queens, Maids, Wenches, Pirates, Fearies, Elves, Goblins and craftstman (no racism intended if your not in there you can still join ) Who like going to any type of faire (fantasy, steampunk, medieval, Gothic, Renaissance etc.) It's also open to reenactors and Larpers who enjoy faire life.
Ideas about what to make: Accesoires, Jewelry, bags, hats, costumes or costume parts like vests, corsets, skirts etc., Journals.
I'm going to be pairing partners up as much as possible according to shared interests. Therefore I hereby warn you it's quite extensive.
This swap asks for 1 large, 1 medium and 1 small, there is some room for spoiling but please make sure you agree with your partner cause this might become a somewhat international swap.
DC numbers will be required for sending in the USA, all other participants will be asked to send a scanned reciept.
Signin-up and communication
For all the communication about this swap I'd like to ask you to include Faire swap in the subject line. Otherwise I might accidentally overlook your message.
I'd also like everyone to post in this thread once a week, because this will be quite a long running swap (especially with the long sign-up range included) I don't want to see anyone go missing in action.
If you want to participate, information to send to organizer.
