.: SWAP INFO :.
Swap Name: The Themed Secret Swap!
Organizer: SewPixie
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 24
Non-U.S. participants allowed?: Yes
All ages allowed? Or 18+?: under 18 ask your parents!
Organizer will check participant feedback and will not accept signups if there is a current negative: Yes
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: Yes

.: IMPORTANT DATES :.

Sign-up date range: Saturday 07/15/06- Saturday 08/05/06
Send-out Dates: This is a multi-sendout swap!
   FIRST MAIL OUT: Monday 08/14/06 (small crafted package)
   SECOND MAIL OUT: Tuesday 09/05/06 (medium crafted package)
   THIRD MAIL OUT: Monday 09/25/06 (medium crafted package & reveal who you are)

.: PARTICIPANT REQUIREMENTS :.
* Current Craftster sign up requirements
          +plus+
* Minimum 150 posts
* Minimum 2 positive swap feedbacks
* Availability to make the 3 mail out due dates


.: SWAP DETAILS :.
This is a secret swap! You will not know who is sending to you until they reveal themselves in the 3rd package. If you have specific things to ask them ask me to ask them or contact a partner from their swap past to see if they know the answer. Also look through their old posts, blog, wists, etc to get ideas.

This is also a themed swap! When you sign up you will list at least 5 'themes' which can be anything from very vague to very specific. For each sendout will center on one of the themes, so three themes total will be used from your list.

Example: Suzy Lu lists these themes: flowers, purple, sewing, mini coopers, cooking, carmel corn, cats. Thelma Rae is chosen to craft for Suzy Lu and decides that package #1 will have a cat theme. For package #2 she will theme it around mini coopers. And for the reveal package she will use the flower theme. 

Remember, each send out is a different theme!

If you are shipping domestically a DCN is required for each send out. This helps you verify that you sent, that your partner received, and helps in the event the postal system has a problem shipping. If you ship internationally please send the customs number (if given to you). Communication is key so PM the organizer when you ship, when you receive, and if you need to send late.

icebyrd67 thanks for pointing out the additional requirements on this one.

In addition to rhe normal base swap requirements for this one we are asking for 150 minimum posts and 2 positive feedbacks from past swaps (if you were in any of the old swap before feedback let me know so I can research and count it). Please keep this in mind when signing up. Thank you!!
