The festival of Yule marks the lowest point on the Wheel of the Year. The days have been growing shorter until the night has triumphed over daylight, winter weather is truly here now, and much of the plant and animal world has died or withdrawn from view. But we greet the Winter Solstice not with gloom and dread but with celebration! It is a time of parties, feasts, family gatherings, colourful lights and decorations, music and above all, the sharing of presents. As we exchange presents with family and friends, let's also share handmade gifts among our WWP family.
For this swap, send your partner a handmade, gift-wrapped
present to be opened on Yule (December 21st). This is a substantial swap, so your package should contain at least one large item, or two medium items, a medium and two small items, or three or more small items. You may also include other items (made or purchased) for your partner's children or other family members if you like, but you should discuss it with your partner first.

To participate, complete this questionnaire, and PM it to the organizer, Wulf
. Participants must post in the swap thread at least once a week, and maintain regular communication with their partners. Sharing the package you've received with everyone else is an important part of swapping, please post photos in the Swap Gallery. If you won't be able to for some reason, be sure to let your partner know early so they can take photos before sending.
