1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Craft My Favorite Episode Swap on: August 12, 2010 09:12:24 AM
I see a lot of tv show specific swaps crop up on the Craftster boards. There are a lot of fabulous shows out there, some mainstream, some not so much. I thought it would be neat to create an open-program swap where someone can name four of five shows that they watch and their favorite episode. Not only would each participant get much-anticipated goodies out of this, but there would be a lot of people watching new shows for the first time. Who knows? They might even love it as much as their partner!

It could be an international swap, but I think for the sake of simplicity we should stick to programs that are in an English speaking format Smiley 20-25 people, medium and two smalls, that kind of thing.

I personally couldn't organize it, but I know there are plenty of talented/wonderful/super awesome crafsters out there who would be perfect for the job.

What does everyone think?
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Golden Girls Swap on: August 08, 2010 12:21:30 PM
Since the start of summer intermission from all my favorite shows (Bones, Vampire Diaries) I've been rediscovering the classic Golden Girls. Who doesn't love Blanche, Rose, Dorothy, Sophia, and in some distant part of our hearts, Stan?

I've been looking around and there seems to be a lot of interest in TV-show related swaps. I don't have swap experience personally, but I believe a quick swap for instant gratification would be just the thing if someone would offer to organize it. 25 participants, available worldwide. Say, a medium and 2 smalls at the most?

Some of the possible crafts that come to mind are--embroidered quotes, show-inspired crochet (Sophia knits and crochets often on the show, maybe a scarf?), yarn ball with inspired goodies inside, character based crafts (a polymer mini-chicken and a piano?), or a Craft My Favorite Episode option. Free-for-all crafting based on the partner's favorite show.

It's a challenge, but I think it would be worth it.

Anyone interested?
