Swap name: EMBROIDERY PROJECT AND PATTERN SWAP
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: tejer
Sign-up date range: 8/9/06-8/16/06 (Only one-week, so don't wait too long to sign up!)
Date to send item by: 9/6/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): 16

list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Swap Organizer herself meets these conditions:

RULES:

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. You must bookmark THIS thread. 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: (Thanks to PinkMafia for this!)

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 EMBROIDERY PROJECT AND PATTERN SWAP as the title for all pms.

6. Please make an item that you would like to receive. Do some research on your partner.

7. If your package is too thin please stuff with plastic bags so you can get a DCN. If you are out of the US save your receipt, this is proof you shipped. You will not be given credit as shipped if your package is lost and you don't have the receipt or a DCN. Negative feedback will be given unless you make a replacement package.


DETAILS OF SWAP:
This will be a swap of at least 1 embroidered item and 1 pattern set (or the equivalent). Your embroidered item should take 3-4 hours to make. (You can make 2 items that take an hour and a half to make, several small items, or a big time intensive item--communicate and come to an agreement with your partner about this if you want to make anything beyond this so they can reciprocate.)  Your pattern should be a set of iron-on transfer patterns you choose for your partner based on their questionnaire. If you would rather assemble some cool free patterns for your pattern set, or give them a small pattern book, you can do that as well. Whatever it is, just make sure that it is the equivalent of a pattern set.

If you want to participate, information to pm to organizer:

Hey there. I know sign ups end tomorrow. I just want my partner to know that I'm going to be out of town Thursday and Friday, so don't be alarmed. You'll hear from me Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Ok everybody---match-ups are complete and pms have been sent to you already. We have an odd number of people (7), so we have 2 groups of 2 and one group of 3.  Here is the way we are split up:


tejer----yamwam
trifarina----GatsbyGirl
beetastic----joolz----chelleyf----beetastic


(The last one means that beetastic makes for joolz, joolz for chelleyf, and chelleyf for beetastic)

So we have about 3 weeks to work on our projects. Talk with your partners if you have any questions about their preferences as detailed on their questionnaire.

Remember to bookmark this thread because it's where I will put any reminders, etc. And don't forget to pm both your partner and me with the DCN (if applicable) when you send and also a courtesy pm when you receive. Happy embroidering!
