Aussie Sweatshop Sampler Swap In this Aussie swap we are making, sending and recieving 5 packages with either a couple of small items or a medium sized item which would retail at about $10 and take about 1-2 hours total crafting time.
Everyone crafts 5 like items, and in return you will receive 5 different items from other particpants in the swap. You can nominate to do 1 (send to 5) set or 2 (send to 10) sets.
14/1/07: MODIFICATION: by popular request. we are doing a shop the sweatshop version. You offer 4 choices of what you are happy to send and recipients choose from your shop. You choose from the shops you are allocated by organizer. So this way if its a small swap people can get a variety of items to choose from.
we have 2 weeks of signups than 2 weeks to craft than send. so thats 4 weeks to make your items. make a sample and take a pic so we can all see it in this thread and help us with picking what we want to recieve.

> When sign ups close, I will ask everyone for a 'top picks list'. That list is a wish list, from the items that are offered, and there will be an effort to match to you, as many items on your list, the remainder of items will be randomly placed. The top picks list is due Jan 28th 2007
>We have a system for sending early; the master list of swappers will be color coded for those who are ready to receive items. When you are finished crafting, you will PM me, and I will change the color of your name on the master list to green, at that time you may send to any other green/ready person! I will also send out a check in PM for those who are not finished early, and at that time your status will be determined.
>No tracking number is required, however, if a package fails to arrive, you will be required to send another unless you save your receipt from the PO, have taken photos of the items and package with the recievees name and address correct on it. make sure you have the correct address.
> Feedback will be given when all 5 items are confirmed as received.
>Positive feedback will be given for all people complying with the craftster swap guidelines. Late senders will be recorded in the comments section, as will poor communication. If I have to track you down, for confirming you have received or sent items, this is poor communication. When an item arrives at your door, you are expected to PM the sender of an item as well as me, cyndiq and post in the gallery. Please post to this thread so I know you are getting the updates to this thread.
> if you have any questions please feel free to ask your questions here OR you can PM me!
