Swap name: The X-Men Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: quincy134
Sign-up date range: June 10th-June 23rd 2006
Date to send items by: July 15th 2006

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages, but please get your parents' permission if you're under 15 and/or you don't have a way of getting to the post office yourself. 

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES.  Please remember that if you haven't participated in a swap before, you can only participate in one until you get positive feedback. 

Details of swap:
Calling all X-Men fans!  With the release of the 3rd movie, I'm sure there are craftsters just iching to express their X-Men love.  Have a secret or not so secret love for Wolverine, Nightcrawler, or Beast?  This is the place for you.  Totes, t-shirts, crazy stuffies, nerdy housewares, the list of possibilites goes on and on.  The swap was initially proposed in reference to the movies, but fans of the comics are also welcome (though you should realize that most participants will probably be movie fans first and foremost).  Here are some related websites:
http://www.x-menthelaststand.com/
http://www.x2-movie.com/splash.html
http://www.uncannyxmen.net/

Each person should plan on making at least one big project (requiring more time) and two to three small projects. 

FYI, I'm at work Monday-Friday 9-5 EST so I won't be here to answer PMs then.  But I will check craftster before and after work (assuming it's not down).

I just remember that you were in my first swap, the Star Wars one.  I'll check out your Asian Cultures one too.  There is just too much swap goodness going on right now!

Hmm this is tempting. I like the movies, but I've been a fan of the comics for ages. Would it be possible to get matched with a comic fan, do you think?

I'm currently lusting over bird's nest necklaces and jewelry in general. Personal swap partners sought! :-)

So far, everyone who has signed up (3 people, including myself) are also comics fans too.  So it shouldn't be a problem.  I put in the disclaimer about the movie because when we originally discussed starting this swap, the idea was brought up in reference to the movies.  But I'm going to try my hardest to keep movie fans with movies fans and comics fans with comics fans.  I only forsee a problem if we are really unbalanced in numbers.
