Then, for the whole rating thing...I am the organizer of the apron swap who decided to match people up based upon their skill level. Now, I did not label the swappers...they chose which level of skill they felt like they had. The novices were happy that they were paired with people on their own level because it eased the swap stress. Of course, the Experts who have been sewing for 25 years were thrilled that they would be receiving an apron of equal quality work.
I used the following four levels:
No Experience, Moderate Experience, Experienced and Expert
That's a great idea! I would love to see something like that in more swaps.
