Swap name: Red Purse Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: crafty_dame
Sign-up date range: August 2nd-11th
Date to send item by: September 2nd

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 25

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP! YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY!

All ages allowed? yes

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:

- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed at least one swap successfully before signing up for more: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
(mostly copied from the green purse swap, cause its basically the same anyways)

please check out the galleries for the hot pink purse swap, the funky black purse swap, the blue purse swap and the green purse swap. Its really awesome how creative and different the bags all were, even we were all using the same colour.

The galleries are here
Green - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52351.0
Black - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=33282.0
Blue - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=42807.0
Pink (organized by lisaquilts) - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24582.0


everyone will make one red purse, and receive one red purse in return.

you could do red on red stenciling, textured red fabric, red sequins, cool red upholstery fabric, red appliqu, knitted or crocheted red bags, basically anything as long as red is the main colour in it.

Additional Rules:
i know there are a lot, but i really want this swap to go well!

1. if this is your first swap please read: (http://www.craftster.org/swapsinfo.html) to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

2. please comment on the thread so that i'll know that you'll be notified of updates. all updates will be made here and its your responsibility to keep up with everything.

3. i will be giving feedback in the following way: (credit to PinkMafia!)
great swapper- for those who follow all the rules
Did not thank partner or pm organizer when package was received- for those with bad manners
Poor communication- if you don't respond to my pm's but have been logging on to craftster
Shipped late (w/ or w/o communication)
Did not purchase DCN (unless you are not in US)

5. please put Red Purse Swap in the title of all PM's (I get lots of PM's and sometimes it gets confusing.)

6. you must make your purse. this is NOT a revamp swap, nor is it a decorate something you bought swap. your partner will expect to receive a purse that's made by you.

7. please dont sign up unless youre willing to put effort into the bag you make. the other colour purse swaps went extremely well, lets continue this pattern!

8. YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY! PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP!

9. PLEASE TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING YOUR PARTNER WILL LIKE. everyone has different tastes, and thats fine, but if your partner says they hate red and pink together, DONT make them a red and pink purse.

10. PLEASE DONT FINISH YOUR PURSE BEFORE YOU ARE ASSIGNED A PARTNER. please wait to see what your partner would like. im allowing three weeks between the end of sign up and the mail date, if you dont think this is enough time, please let me know.

im using the same questionnaire as I used for the previous colour purse swap, and I think it worked pretty well. i know it has a lot of questions, but please answer them with as many details as possible. i really want to try to match everyone with a partner who will make them a bag that suits them. im not guaranteeing that you will be swapping with someone in your own country, and im not going to automatically match Canadians with people overseas. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS BEFORE YOU SIGN UP! YOU MAY HAVE TO SHIP OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN COUNTRY! my biggest priority is going to be matching people up by styles and that sort of thing, not by geography.

when you mail your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. please send us a pm. and you MUST use Delivery Confirmation. i know that its sometimes not possible, or too expensive when shipping between countries, but its REQUIRED when youre shipping within your own country. and please ask at the post office if youre shipping between countries. sometimes it is possible to get it, and its only a few dollars more. if you aren't required to get a DC, you MUST save your receipt. if your partner doesnt get their bag, and you didnt save your receipt, you are responsible for replacing it!

when you get your package, you need to let me and your swap partner know. please send us a pm. post pictures in the swap gallery if possible. if pictures arent possible, please post a description in the gallery. if you do not keep in contact with me, i will make sure that your feedback reflects that!
