Details of swap: Share My Best Medium with 3 People Swap
The idea is that you make 3 Mediums and send to 3 different Craftsters chosen by your organizer - me. Not only do you get to make something that you enjoy, are good at but you also get to share with others and get to meet new Craftster Friends! Craft 3 of the same things you enjoy and receive 3 different great mediums in return!If I say I want to ship internationally, do I have to ship to 3 international countries?
No, but there are no guarantees. You may get a mix of 3 different countries, or a different combination of USA & international. However, Please expect to ship 3 international packages if you agree. Can my 3 Mediums be different?
The idea of this swap is to make 3 of the same. My best item is a bag. So I will use the same pattern, BUT the fabrics will be different and to my partners likes and wants. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask on the thread or PM me. Definition of a Medium
: A Medium is valued at 2 points. This equals to 2 or more hours, one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf, bag, or worth $10-$30 dollars. Please think Quality... better to over craft than under craft. Can you make 2 smalls or 1 point items?
Yes. When making smalls PLEASE BE SURE it is worth the effort. Please over craft instead of under craft.
Can I use what I already have in my stash?
Sure... But be sure it meets the likes of your partners. Please don't use this swap as a stash clean out. That being said, if what is in your stash is something that your partners would like - by all means. I would also like to add that this isn't a swap to send your seconds.... Please do not send projects that you are not 98% proud of. If you had something in your stash because it wasn't your best and you didn't send it in another swap, please do not dump this on your partners. Thanks!Can you hand pick your partners?
No, but you can let me know who you would like to swap with and I will do my best to match you up with your choices. Will my profile be passed/shared with 3 craftsters?
YES. If you have issues with your address and profile being shared with more than one person at a time, this swap is not for you.
What if I get flaked on?
If you get flaked on, I will be quick to find you an angel. If you would like to be an angel, please let me know when filling out the questionnaire. Do I have to Post Every Week like your previous swaps?
Nope. I'm taking a stab at trusting Craftsters. So this is what I ask. You communicate with your partner to seek out how you can make your best Medium, something they enjoy. Please stay in contact with me - Please send DC# or picture copy of receipt if you are outside of the US to me and your partner when shipped. In addition, PLEASE send me a PM when you receive. If you want to be chatty on the thread PLEASE do so, a chatty thread is a happy thread. If I don't see you on a thread and send you a PM to check on you, don't take it personally, please respond promptly (72 hours from sent date) and let me know you are still around.
Can this Medium be for my kids or pets?
Yes, but realize that your swap partner may or may not be willing to make 3 kid or pet items. However, you can fill out the application including your child(s)/pet preferences and hope for the best. Can I spoil my partner?
OF COURSE! just don't expect it in return. The swap is all about 3 Mediums in a month's time. That is somewhat of a high demand swap. If you have more to give, feel free!
I will be a stickler to shipping on time. If there is no or little communication, Negative Feedback will be given 7/14/09 and swap angel will be found.
